Courtesy of more than one reader, here are some links with additional information to go with the three articles I posted earlier about personal security in an era of mass shootings:
Everywhere is a potential danger zone - so prepare accordingly
Ammunition selection for small handguns
Greg Ellifritz wrote two articles some years ago that directly address some of the same issues. I recommend both to your attention:
I note that both articles confirm my preference for my standard .38 Special and .380 ACP loads, as discussed in my earlier blog posts.
Next, Mike Kupari asks the all-important question about the self-defense mindset: "When is 'Good Enough' actually good enough?" That's a very important question, and one that each of us must answer for ourselves, based on our own needs, criteria, and lifestyle. He rightly observes that some "instructors" out there are out to sell us what they prefer, while others aren't objective in assessing our needs. It's a good article, and worth reading.
