We all try to be aware of potential threats and seek to avoid being inadvertantly placed in dangerous situations, but how many of us consider potential places to take cover as part of our situation?
I’m thinking about gang violence and/or multiple terrorist threats.
In some places, humungous magazine capacities that you can load on monday and shot all week aren’t an issue but in other areas with magazine restrictions, they are.
Also many conceealable handguns are light on capacity—5 shot revolvers, 2 shot derringers etc… so with multiple bad actors having a safer place to reload (if you’re lucky enough) becomes an issue. Even with a large magazine standing the open inserting a new magazine, no matter how fast you are—unless you’re speed freak—isn’t going to stack the cards in your favor and if suffering an injury, will slow things down even more.
Do you keep an eye out for places to take cover if needed? Is it a part of your situational awareness protocol?
