We all probably have a preferred route to work, a favorite grocery store or even a favorite place to sit at home. They’re our favorites because they’re well-known and comfortable. A self-defense situation can take place in any one of those locations. While there are some benefits to being in a place you know well, the detractor is we can become somewhat complacent. (Have you ever driven home from work, for example, and not remembered the drive once you’re home?)
This week, break that routine. Go a different way home from work. Go to a different store. Sit on the front porch instead of the back patio or visit the USCCA Community on your phone instead of your computer (or vice versa).
