Tyler talks about situational awareness today, and stresses the importance of situational awareness, and relates it as a precursor to every action that follows. This cannot be stressed enough, especially for concealed carriers. One of the most common "situational awareness erasers" that you see today is the cell phone. This is one thing that really needs to be stressed to your family and childeren as well.

A Captive insurance company is a self insurance model that allows a company to create it's own insurance company which insures the risk to the company. The company pays into it's Captive a premium that is invested and grows in the markets, creating even more available funds to satisfy the claims made to the Captive from the Company. So, in this instance, a Captive is a funding mechanism for CCW Safe that allows every membership to be backed by insurance without any of the traditional insurance models expense.

The news came late last Thursday: another terrorist attack in Paris. One police officer dead, and two others seriously wounded. ISIS yet again claimed responsibility; thankfully the pawn was killed and therefore will never be on the chessboard again. The reality though is that this game will continue to be played over and over again because there will always be another pawn to take his place.

This week, Tyler talks about prioritizing your training. At the end of the day, there is never enough time to train everything you want. There's always more training and learning to be achieved. And it's not just a time restraint, but also a financial one, as we all know the cost of bullets, range fees, etc.

If you are untrained to the point of needing to carry without a round in the chamber to be safe; then you shouldn’t be carrying a firearm at all.

Being sued after a self defense incident can be almost as stressful as defending your life the first time in the physical realm. Defending such a case can not only force you and those close to you to relive the incident, but it can also be financially crippling if you do not have a contingency plan. If you are unfortunate enough to go to trial on a self defense case, the $55k to $179k bill that you have racked up to this point will only grow larger. In fact, at this point, you will most likely be starting off with another $100k for attorneys fees as you move into the trial phase.

Let’s take a minute and look at exactly what is covered, or better yet, what would not be covered in that $100k attorney fee.
