As a 70 year-old gun dog it drives me crazy to see both young and old people walking with their heads up their behinds. Talking/texting on their phones they are in a walking coma. Talking on a phone usually limits your view to the side your phone is on. These people are screaming VICTIM! When I am out (armed) I am constantly scanning my area. Also you can tell a victim just the way they carry themselves. I call it walking strong when you project the “don’t mess with me because I will beat you down” attitude when you perceive a possible threat. Also it is always is a good practice to mark in your mind exits in a restaurant and set facing the entrance if possible. If I’m with a party I sit on the outside of a booth.
