Drawing From Concealment Part I -- Clearing Clothing
The basic techniques and steps for drawing a gun remain the same, regardless of what holster you are drawing from and area on the body, but all these steps must take place.
However, when drawing from concealment, there is an additional step that must take place. This is the clearing of any clothing away and off of the gun so you can get a solid grip on your gun to draw it. It may be a shirt that must be lifted, a jacket or cover shirt that must be swept away, or a dress or skirt hem lifted.
Drawing From Concealment Part II: Pull and Rotate
Once you have effectively cleared your clothing and established a solid firing grip on your gun, you will need to pull the gun from the holster. Before pulling your gun from the holster, make sure you have a solid, stable stance.
While keeping your trigger finger straight and outside of the holster, pull the firearm directly up and completely out of the holster. Your trigger finger needs to remain straight.
Depending on the holster you are wearing and its location, this could be an upward, sideways, or downward pull.
Drawing From Concealment Part III: The Extend
Now we must learn to extend the firearm forward. We must be able to do this safely while simultaneously getting a solid two-handed firing grip, getting our sights on target, and preparing our trigger finger to do its job...
Drawing From Concealment Part IV: Scan and Assess Surroundings
Before we begin discussing how to re-holstering your gun, it is extremely important to do a full scan and assessment of your surroundings following the use of deadly force against an attacker.
In the moments of such a traumatic event, it is easy to have all of your focus singularly on the attacker and not be aware of other threats. This is called tunnel vision. Is the threat over? Does your attacker in any way still pose a potential threat? Is he incapacitated?
Once he is no longer a threat, you want to visually scan and listen to make sure there are no additional attackers or threats in the area. You also want to identify the good guys as well.
This is important to regain your situational awareness and break through the tunnel vision. It’s not uncommon for there to be more than one attacker so you must be aware and ready. Your mind will be racing and likely your body trembling. It is so important to train these techniques so hard, that your body and mind already know what to do -- instinctively.
Drawing From Concealment Part V: Reholster
At this stage, you have successfully stopped an attacker and saved your life! You have fully scanned and assessed your surroundings. You are safe, and help is on the way. Now it is time to reholster your gun slowly and safely.
Although it might be easy to just say to reholster “do the steps in reverse”, it really isn’t that simple. First, if you have just fired your gun to stop an attacker. You have been through a highly traumatic and frightening experience. There will be both psychological and physical impacts to deal with. You could be trembling, crying, and your mind racing. There are many different possible physical and psychological responses and each of us will have a unique response. These possibilities must be considered in your training.
Reholstering is not a skill to be done with speed in mind. It should always be done slowly and consciously...
How To Use Pepper Spray
You want to purchase a pepper spray that is easy for you to use and has the stopping power necessary to help you get away if a situation arises.
In theory, it appears that pepper spray is easy to use if faced with the need to use it. Simply point it in the direction of your attacker and press the button down right? If you are under this impression, read all of the below and commit to practice with it. Let’s outline what you should be practicing and why.
Senior Citizens and Self-Protection
Growing older is a fact of life. We are all aging and we all will deal with the physical, mental and emotional changes that come with growing older. These realities do not have to mean however, that we must accept being vulnerable to criminals and sick, violent evil people. There is much we can do to “arm” ourselves with the tools, knowledge and training to be prepared to deny those that wish to do us harm access or victory over us. Aging is inevitable, but victimhood is not. Stay aware, stay strong, stay prepared and stay safe!
Storing ammo isn’t necessarily as simple as putting it in a box and forgetting about it. It requires a little bit of pampering
Stay Away from Extreme Heat. Keep Your Ammo Dry. Preserving the Shelf Life of Your Ammo. Tips to Help Preserve Ammo (humidity control, tag and rotate ammo, put it in a gun safe). Ammo needs the same kind of love and care as your rifles, shotguns, and pistols. You can’t just buy ammo, let it sit neglected in a corner of your attic or basement for years, and still expect it to function properly. Extending the life of your ammunition to a decade and beyond is not rocket science. As long as it’s stashed away in a cool, dry place, you should be good to go.
The importance of a surreptitious draw
How does one do a surreptitious draw? To start with, don’t get in a hurry. You get access to the gun slowly. Rapid movement draws attention. Slow movement is often not noticed. Having an intervening barrier (counter, display) further assists in avoiding notice. While the crew is busy doing something else, you have time to assess (“CAN I? -- SHOULD I?”), while you slowly get the gun. The loud “clack” of a kydex holster is contraindicated for such use -- but they may not notice it if you slowly pull the pistol clear of the holster. Once it’s time to move and you’re committed, time is of the essence, consistent with good accuracy. While people decry square range practice, the practical aspect is knowing what you can do 100% when there are no intervening variables -- and what you’re less able to do perfectly. It’s not just stealth but smarts. Knowing how to think gives you your best chance to fight �" and to avoid a fight -- another day.
--> Tax filing websites have been sending users’ financial information to Facebook
(published November 22, 2022) Major tax filing services such as H&R Block, TaxAct, and TaxSlayer have been quietly transmitting sensitive financial information to Facebook when Americans file their taxes online, The Markup has learned.
The data, sent through widely used code called the Meta Pixel, includes not only information like names and email addresses but often even more detailed information, including data on users’ income, filing status, refund amounts, and dependents’ college scholarship amounts.
Even Intuit, the company that runs America’s dominant online filing software, employed the pixel. Intuit’s TurboTax, however, did not send financial information to Meta but, rather, usernames and the last time a device signed in. The company kept the pixel entirely off pages beyond sign-in.

Vaxxed By Machines, Tracked By Machines: Humanity To Be Augmented One Cell At A Time.
We’re living out a sci-fi thriller where unaccountable corporations openly force advanced tech into our bodies. Pulling ahead of the pack, Moderna is currently developing mRNA vaccines for fifteen different diseases, from HIV and tuberculosis to malaria and the common flu. That means an endless array of experimental, barely tested vaccines will soon flood the market. If recent history is any guide, institutional mandates and digital vaxxport updates will follow close behind. Prepare yourself for perpetual warfare. There can be no wishful thinking, but there’s only one attitude to take -- "we will win this."

NEW Controlled Food System Is Now In Place And They Will Stop At Nothing To Accelerate Their Control
Posted April 27, 2022. Who Controls The Food Supply Controls The People.
The National Young Farmers Coalition estimates that two-thirds of farmland will change hands over the next decade due to farmers retiring. With all of the regulations, inflation, and supply issues, all of which has been manufactured, there is a heavy burden on U.S. farmers, and the globalists have carefully calculated their moves to bring in the vertical indoor farms and lab grown meat in typical savior style. ... Genetics, synthetics, and digital citizenry is marching its way forward and people are going to need to take a stand where they can, be aware of what they are buying, ingesting, and signing up for. Support and help farmers and ranchers as much as possible during these times. Building ones own small scale vertical indoor farm or greenhouse might be a wise idea. Families and communities growing food, building a homestead, and collaborating is a great step in the right direction. FarmMatch connects people with local farmers, and Seeds for Generations offers great heirloom seeds as well as free webinars and resources for building and growing your own food. The Solari Food Series and Food Risk Tracker also provide a wealth of helpful information. There is no way to sugarcoat this system they are implementing. ... Imagine, in the not too distant future, going for a drive in the countryside (in your mandated electric vehicle) and observing dried up farmland replaced by giant turbines. It’s a very dystopian image that no one wants to experience. We must work together to find a way forward and continue to say no to the digital ID they are creating to control our access and spending, while building self sufficiency and security together.
The Recycling Lie That’s Hurting Our Economy and Environment
Many millions of Americans dutifully sort their trash, believing that recycling saves the environment and facilitates sustainability. But what if this greentopian ritual not only doesn’t help the Earth, but actually harms it and the economy to boot? ... The market -- which is democracy applied to economics, as the people determine what goods and services will prevail with their “votes” (daily buying choices) -- isn’t perfect. Yet it’s the best general measure we have of a proposal’s rationality. Thus, if the market doesn’t warrant something’s (e.g., recycling’s) existence, we should think twice about it. Apart from basic laws, an idea that must be enforced by government usually isn’t a good idea.
