Comments: Distant Early Warning

I know what you mean - being armed mentally is much more important than having your firearm handy. Also helpful is to have thought some of the more likely scenarios. I think the three most likely (though still a very small chance) are mall shootings, school shootings, and work shootings. If you can think about what you would do if you were in the middle of each of those (both with and without spouse/children) you'll be way ahead of the game if it ever happens. Then, to cover the rest of the less likely situations, have a default set of priorities. Mine are the saftey of my wife and child, then the rest of my family, then a few friends I'd lay down my life for. If none of those are present, my actions would depend on the circumstances.
