The Second Subject Area: The Weapon

by DA Caravella on 02/21/20

The second of the three subject areas is "The Weapon," in this case more particularly, a firearm. When making decisions regarding its use, one must consider one's familiarity with it and its condition. It is counterproductive and dangerous to carry a firearm for defense when the holder of it does not know how to operate it. One should be intimately familiar with any tool before it is employed.

Knowing the condition of a firearm is equally important. Is it loaded and with what is it loaded? Is it clean and in a condition to be fully operational? Has it been properly and regularly maintained? Are any attached accessories compatible and also fully operational? These questions should be answered prior to the firearm being made available for use.

There may be situations in which a particular firearm is unsuitable for defense regardless of its condition and the holder's competency with it. Such a situation would require unique decision making.

Any tool is only as good as its suitability for use when considering a variety of factors.
