“To not prepare is the greatest of crimes; to be prepared beforehand for any contingency, is the greatest of virtues”………Sun Tzu
Those words, written nearly 2,000 years ago, are just as true today as they were then. Statistically speaking, the majority of us will never find ourselves in a situation where we have to defend ourselves or our family in a real lethal force encounter, however, the consequences for failure if we do are simply too great to ignore. The truth is, the world can be a dangerous place. No matter where you live, what job you hold, what school your children attend, or where you go to church, you are never immune from a criminal attack. Being prepared, not only by having a weapon available, but also through developing the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitude through proper training and instruction, can mean the difference between victim and victor.
