Size of New Jerusalem.

Tom's Journal.

Hi  Friends, and Readers,
    I am still learning the equivalents between metric and English standard tool sizes, and don't claim to be an expert, how ever a skilled Welder, my life long trade needs to know how to measure things, of course, and I have done a lot of nice carpentry and wood working, too.   I think that we all need to at least LEARN the basics of what a biblical "Cubit" is, etc.   And just like horses are measured in "hands."   And they taught us in college print reading for welders other signs just so we knew something about the other trades, too.  

I promised a special person that I would eventually look up how large the New Heavens would be, and I used the term, "Cube."   Perhaps that wasn't what that person wanted to hear....  but you be the judge.  Check this interesting subject out, please.


Size of New Jerusalem

How large is the city? That varies slightly depending on the version of the Bible. The ESV and NIV versions say it is 12,000 stadia in length and width(Rev. 21:16), where a stadia is 607 feet. This translates to 1,400 miles, which is what the NLT Bible says. However, the KJV and other versions say 12,000 furlongs, which translates to 1,500 miles.
Regardless of whether the city is 1,400 miles or 1,500 miles in length and width, it is shaped like a square at the base. This means New Jerusalem is larger than India with nearly 2 million square miles. These measurements are meant to be literal since they are described as man's measurements(Rev. 21:17).
Even more astounding than the size at the base is the height that is also at least 1,400 miles(Rev. 21:16). This goes well beyond Earth's atmosphere and into space. If a building in the city is this high and has a generous 12 feet per story, the building would be over 600,000 stories!
To give you a better idea just how big New Jerusalem is, here are some representations of what it would look like on Earth if the city is shaped like a cube.
Over North America:
New Jerusalem on Earth
New Jerusalem on Earth
New Jerusalem on Earth
New Jerusalem on Earth
Over the Middle East:
New Jerusalem on Earth
New Jerusalem on Earth
New Jerusalem on Earth
New Jerusalem on Earth
If you are 1 mile away from the city, you would not see the top2 but might if you are 10 miles away3. At 5,000 miles away, it would appear more than 130 times larger than the moon4. To appear the size of the moon, you would have to be 160,427 miles away. Because the city is at least 1,400 miles in length, width and height, it could be shaped like a cube or pyramid. Does the height refer to the wall that surrounds the city or the tallest building? Rev. 21:17 says the wall around the city is about 200 feet, but ESV, NASB and KJV bibles don't specify whether this is the thickness or height. The NIV bible says this is about 200 feet thick, but the footnote says "or high". A cube-shaped city would make sense in the sense the Most Holy place in Solomon's temple(1 Kings 6:20) was shaped like a cube. However, scripture does not provide a definitive answer as to whether the city is cube or pyramid-shaped.
Last updated 2/20/20141
2 When describing how large something is when the distance to it grows, angular size is used. Angular size = 2arctan(1/2(d/D)) where d=height of New Jerusalem and D=distance to it. In this case the angular size is 179.84 degrees.
3 Angular size is 178.36 degrees
4 The moon is 30 minutes

Constitutional Carry Continues Advancing, and Other Great News for Gun Owners!
“This is a fantastic day.... Law-abiding citizens should not have to ask for permission to exercise a constitutionally-protected right.” -- GOA’s Erich Pratt, quoted in, September 15, 2016

Not a GOA member yet?  You can join Gun Owners of America for only $20 and start getting postcards to put heat on your legislators today!

Missouri Overrides the Gov’s Veto, Adopts GOA-backed Permitless Carry!
Dear Thomas:
This has been a terrific week.
I am so proud of our Missouri activists, because in unison, they drowned out the shrill voice of billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

We now have 12 states that have adopted Constitutional Carry -- Missouri becoming the latest one to do so on Wednesday.
And for anyone who was watching ... wow! ... legislators in the Show Me State did it in grand fashion.  
Republican legislators overwhelmingly overrode Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of a GOA-backed Constitutional Carry bill (SB 656) -- legislation which protects the right of law-abiding citizens to carry concealed handguns without first getting a permit.
Concealed carry has made tremendous strides in 2016, as Missouri now becomes the fourth state this year to adopt a permitless carry law.
Gun Owners of America mobilized its grassroots members on several occasions in support of this Constitutional Carry legislation.  
You can go here and here to see recent examples.
Billionaire Michael Bloomberg was very active in Missouri, opposing the legislation, but to no avail.  
The loud, collective voice of gun owners across the state overcame Bloomberg’s money and his misrepresentations about concealed carry.
Missouri’s permitless carry will take effect within 30 days. 
The Show Me State now joins eleven other states in the Constitutional Carry club: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming.
In Other Good News ...
The postcards from GOA members are paying off!
In August, Gun Owners of America mailed postcards to its members urging Representatives to oppose “No Fly, No (Gun) Buy” legislation.
The problem with these bills is that law-abiding gun owners can be erroneously put on Government Watch lists -- without due process -- meaning their Second Amendment rights would be illegitimately denied or put on hold.
Well, these postcards are now inundating congressional offices, and they couldn’t have arrived at a better time.
On Wednesday, Democrats tried to hijack the House floor to demand a vote on Government Watch list legislation.
But Republicans refused to grant unanimous consent, and shut down Democrats’ efforts at passing gun control ... for now.
No doubt, anti-gun Democrats will keep trying. Remember that they already staged a sit-in on the House floor in June, demanding more gun restrictions.
And similar efforts were attempted in the Senate.
But Gun Owners of America fought hard to oppose ALL gun control, and garnered the ire of Senators like Harry Reid, who said at the time:
Senate Republicans continue to cower [before] the Gun Owners of America. The NRA is bad, really bad. Gun Owners of America is even worse than bad.
So please help us to continue deluging legislators’ desks with postcards:  
One GOA member recently told me:  “I find the postcards you send out to be extremely useful.  When I receive extra ones, I stamp and give them to friends to sign and send.” 
That can be you as well!
Keep in mind that membership in GOA is only $20 for a year -- but with that membership, you will be supplied with a continual stream of postcards that you can use to put heat on your legislators.

You can join Gun Owners of America for only $20 and start getting postcards to put heat on your legislators today!

Ammo to Combat Gun Grabbers’ Falsehoods
Finally, I want to make you aware of several different tools that you can use to help educate yourself and others on Second Amendment issues.
The first is a GOA production called Praesidium, which is a powerful short film that has elements of H.G. Wells’ Time Machine.  
It’s short -- only five minutes -- but it delivers a powerful message in showing the dangers of Gun Free Zones.
Please click here to view Praesidium.

The second video, also a GOA production, exposes the failures of Gun-Free Zones in just two-and-a-half minutes -- explaining why mass shooters target these victim disarmament areas and showing how guns are being used in self-defense.
Click here to view The Lie Behind Gun Free Zones.
Once you view these videos, I hope that you will post them to your Facebook and Twitter pages!
Lastly, another resource that shows the dangers of Gun-Free Zones -- and gun control in general -- is Dr. John Lott’s new book, The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies.
Dr. Lott not only tackles the failure of Gun-Free Zones, but of background checks, Aussie gun control and much more.
You can order your copy today by clicking here.
I hope the above resources will help you and your family to better articulate Second Amendment principles with those who don’t understand the benefits of freedom.
Thank you so much for your support and activism in defense of our rights.
In Liberty,
Erich Pratt

   Who can tell me or advise, about the reason how many thousands of my great Blog readers from all over the world---  but especially Europe,  were glued to my posts, and then something happened to 'unplug' most of them a few weeks ago....  duh.  [?].   It beats the heck out of me, unless some other countries just recently outlawed their own European people from reading my Christian based, conservative type/ style Blog.   I don't THINK I touched anything different or pressed the wrong button or stroked the wrong key....Ha!   I am just a very curious person, and perhaps I am spending too much time worrying about a problem that I cannot fix.   But I figure.... at least they got a snout full of "good old Gospel preaching and teaching, and the KJV Bible !"    So,  my conscience is clear.  Here is a tip/ hint on spelling that term:   "Con ---Science =  Conscience."   Like Disney's "Jiminy Cricket."    That little feeling in your heart that pricks you when you do something wrong... IF you have a Conscience, trained by the Bible and the Holy Spirit.  
       And as I have said so many times...  I know and understand that I AM a Sinner !   But, not as some "people" claim, that I use that in defense to willfully commit more sins, and that somehow makes it alright....Ha!   NO !  Like the apostle Paul said, 'I know what is right and wrong -- but my flesh is weak.'   However,  I have accomplished many things in my life, and quit many bad sinful habits ---with the help of the Holy Spirit !   So, it is with that understanding that I can and will continue to do even more while on earth ---if God permits me to live a little bit longer and breathe this fresh air, with the help of the Spirit in the Sky !   And remember, folks....  "Nothing is impossible for the man, or woman, who DOESN'T HAVE TO DO IT !!"   I already know what true struggle and hardship, being deserted, kicked out of one's house in the middle of Winter, and deprivation are !!   Ha!  When I got home from RVN [Vietnam], I thought I was a 'big man, and too proud and big for my britches .... but in reality, I had so much to learn and experience !!   If only I had a more biblical rearing/ childhood, perhaps things might have been different.   But the apple doesn't fall far from the tree....  duh.  
       I am thinking now, that we are all in a long foot race, but it doesn't much matter who comes in first or second --- but who finishes that 'race of life !'   Who makes it to heaven ! 

The scary but true scenario down below [that is so important to read and absorb] is not meant to scare people,  but to prepare them NOW, for what will happen.    I have been a bible student for the past 40 years, but only learned the real TRUTH IN 1995, from a few smart Saints who had mercy on my poor soul, and showed me the Way.   I feel that I am in their debt until I die, but I know that Father God sent them to cross my path in life.   I have tried hard to emulate their actions ever since then, and brought that same truth to my wife, Sharon, and my son, Andy, both passed away -- breaking my heart into pieces, and crying a river or tears for a long time.  
      Would a loving God somehow bring me a long 4 hours' drive to the U.P. "following a liar" only to be deserted/ kicked out into the cold Winter snow in December, even after I led so many people to Christ, [with the help and direction of the H.S. --Holy Spirit], and planted so many seeds in the far North of this Country ? ? ?    And yet,  I get the impression that some hateful 'pastors' suppose that I might be locked out of heaven for some sins that I may have committed !   I don't feel the need to rehash my personal, private life here....  and I won't.   But it's strange how some folks like to teach:  "Once Saved -- always Saved."   But then later want to change the scriptures when they get angry with something, or don't get their way.... LOL.    Well,  I will tell them one thing for sure....  they will never ever get one thin dime from me again...  I promise, and I will never shake their hand again, either.   Sometimes I think these hypocrites are 'making it up as they go !'   I suppose I could move back to WI., where the I.Q. is a little bit higher and people understand English better,  but I don't feel I want to run away, at least at this stage of the game,  when the SHTF could come soon.   And if those goofs ever get really hungry, I might let them smell the tin foil wrapper of my Juicy Fruit gum package.   Joke.    Not even ONE of those Jokers ever bothered to see me after I left their 'Wisdom Hole.'   Sorry that I learn the hard way --- but I do learn.
    Well,  I guess I am saying too much, again,  but some smart VA doctors told me that my writing is great therapy for me....  and I am not in a FEMA camp, yet.  
     If you think this post/ subject has merit, or something that you could use, please drop me an email: 
      And my heart is with the good people in Germany right now, preparing for a possible war or major conflict within their country from the Islamic hordes invading them.   The good Russian people were  just a bit smarter by never letting the Muslims in -- in the first place....  LOL.   Hungary is doing a good job at keeping those ghetto people at bay right now, and really, who can afford them to eat you out of house and home  $$$$.  Big question:  Why can't other huge land masses of Islam take in all those Syrian "refugees ???"   Egypt,  Saudi Arabia, parts of Africa, etc.   But we all know the answer to that question... don't we ?   You see, it's the same with the phony 'Palestine ghetto people' who say that they want a larger piece of  Israel, so they can hurt the Jews more by carving up the Jewish home land.... duh.   Egypt or S.A. could easily take those fakers into their country and take care of them,  but they all hate God's Chosen People, the Jews, and want to destroy that nation.   I say, let those ghetto people eat pigs !   If they ever come knocking on my door, I will offer them some bacon without the eggs.    Times are rough.... Ha!  
      Well, I hope I will get some company tomorrow,  because it's been too long to be alone up here as Winter is coming.   I will be looking for a warm Winter blanket at Shopko, too, that is not made of Wool.   I have a feeling that this Winter will be extra COLD !  

Remember what I said before....  "Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn't have to DO IT ! !"    Sometimes the modern day Pharisees like to heap heavy burdens on the flock members that they could never bare...     And sorry,  I just have too many debts to pay of my own to finance their frequent vacations $$$.      

Warm Regards,

"Iron sharpens Iron."   ---Proverbs 27: 17.

Debt Super Cycle Will Destroy U.S. Standard of Living Overnight “Leave Society Gasping and Stupefied”

America: The Highest Standard of Living
This article was written by Tom Chatham and originally published at his Project Chesapeake website.
Editor’s Comment: The reality is sad, but the population is not prepared to face the great crisis at hand.Overnight and with the heavy force of a tidal wave. The greatness and the normalcy of not having to struggle to meet basic needs, the standard of living that prosperous Americans have known all their lives is on the cusp of utter destruction. The social services and pensions are being deliberately abused, pressured, traded, undermined, looted from and neglected – only to accumulate impossible shortfalls in funding.
The financial security for retirement, and for those not working or depending upon benefits, is all prone to be deleted. What would happen if the Great Depression returned? Americans were once rural, rugged and dignified. Today, they are urban, delicate and debased, not to mention ignorant and dumbed down. Who among us is prepared to survive a true, long-term collapse? Fewer than you’d think…
How Will You Cope With A Lower Standard Of Living?
by Tom Chatham
The forces are mounting that will eventually overwhelm most Americans and send their standard of living to unknown depths. Americans that have only known the post WWII prosperity are ill equipped and educated to deal with depression level living. Easy credit and instant gratification have created a nation of whining, self absorbed, entitlement minded people with no moral or mental toughness.
Doug Casey believes we are headed for what he calls a super depression created by the ending of a debt super cycle. The bigger the debt cycle the bigger the depression that follows. That’s how reality works and most people are not prepared for reality.
When this depression, which has already started, gets momentum, it will overwhelm the plans of a society that is expecting to get things like social security, pensions and payouts from retirement plans they have paid into for many years. All of those things will disappear almost overnight and leave society gasping and stupefied over what to do. Their reactions will be to yell and scream and try to identify who to blame but the only person they should blame is the one in the mirror.
Many very smart people have raised the alarm and done their best to warn the sleeping public, but those slumbering masses have ignored the warnings and hit the snooze button one more time. The masses do not understand economics, do not want to understand economics and they will pay dearly for that ignorance in the coming days.
When the real unemployment rate becomes common knowledge as it increases substantially, people will be left to survive on what resources they have saved up outside the banking system that cannot be stolen by the politicians and bankers. That is a key point here. The assets you have outside the system that cannot be stolen from you with a few key strokes on some computer.
Those hoping for some miraculous event that will send the U.S. back to the days of manufacturing might and jobs for all will never see it happen. Those days are gone. The west line theory tells us our economy will slow down and become more modest as the shipping center of the world moves west to the next powerhouse region which is Asia. This is what history teaches us.
When people suddenly wake up one morning and they have no job, their retirement is gone and they need to care for their family, what will they do? When government services have collapsed and they suddenly realize they are now living in a third world country with few government services, what will they do? When the banks are closed and only a select few connected people have any type of money or access to goods, what will they do?
This is the reality that many people will face in the future and they have no idea how bad it can get. They refuse to contemplate the harsh reality they will be living in and take steps to mitigate the effects. To do so would be to acknowledge it could happen and they are taking personal responsibility. Personal responsibility is a dirty phrase in today’s entitlement society. To see some of the effects one only has to look at the collapse of society in Venezuela today to see what awaits.
When the Dollar Collapses, This is What WILL Happen in the United States!

When it happens it will all fall back to you to take responsibility for your family and take care of them for the duration. To do that you need to plan now for that eventuality and build up the resources you will need to provide food, shelter, clothing and security when the system fails to do it for you. You need to be Noah on his ark not the people watching as he floated away.
Having resources stored up is a must but it may not get you all the way through if the situation lasts for many years. That is why you need some type of plan to replace those resources as time goes by and have some way to generate some type of income or at least items to trade. Usable goods are for the short term and things like gold ,silver and production equipment are for the long term to help you get through the crisis with the least amount of pain.
Even with proper planning the days ahead will not be easy as the standard of living of society will fall substantially to levels only seen in failed third world countries or old pictures. The assets actually owned by people today is very small compared to how they live. They will default on their home loan, their car loan, and their credit card debt leaving them with very few real possessions and few ways to move what they have left even if they have some place to go. Ultimately these people will become the new serfs to the wealthy class that will take possession of anything of value. Feudalism will once again rule.
The lack of planning by society will make this a reality if it is allowed. What will you do when everything you have worked a lifetime for is suddenly taken away? Do you have a plan to keep what you have? Do you have a plan to make money when you cannot find a job? Do you have a way to take care of your family until things stabilize? Do you have a home you will not lose if the whole system breaks down? What will you do if electricity or fuel is too expensive to buy or not available to the general population? These are the questions you should be asking yourself now and you better have a good answer because your family will be asking them when the greater depression sets in.

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger (NaturalNews) For months, any writer, blogger or news publisher who dared talk about Hillary Clinton’s collapsing health was denounced as a “conspiracy theorist” or “Hillary health truther.” The strategy is obvious by now: The wholly dishonest and deceitful liberal media was trying to force people to stop discussing Hillary’s […]

Hagmann and Hodges-Why the Globalists Want Clinton-Blockbuster Interview

By Dave Hodges on Sep 15, 2016 06:25 am
    Recently, I interviewed Doug Hagmann. Doug is one of the most trusted voices in broadcasting and his command of the topics is outstanding. The interview centered around Doug Hagmann’s perception of Hillary Clinton and how she best serves the globalists.  What would a Clinton presidency look like? It is indeed a frightening proposition. […]

Hello  Friends,
    I really enjoy being retired and also able to pay my bills on time, the way I was taught as a young person at home on the family farm in Wisconsin.    I thought I had a good upbringing, strict but loving, IMHO.   The farm chores and harvesting were physically demanding,  but God gave us good bodies and minds, and laziness was a terrible sin.    I had to hand milk the family cows daily, feed the calves and shovel manure, etc.   I had to build the fire in the downstairs basement huge wood furnace and do dishes too.   So, when I didn't have money to attend college and joined the Army,  I was well suited to take  orders without grumbling.   
     But after working hard at some very dangerous welding jobs for 5-6 years being laid off  --- Chrysler finally called me back to finish my 30- plus years in Kenosha, WI., so that I retired at age 54 with full benefits and relatively happy, except that my knees were in bad, hurtful shape, where I eventually had to have both replaced, and the first one at the infamous Milwaukee, WI., VAMC 'hospital,' left me a cripple from the goofy, hack job that the butchers did on me, leaving the Right leg 3/4 inch shorter than the Left leg, and that also hurt my spine, to this day !!   I refuse to ever go back to that so-called 'hospital.'   And I have heard first hand horror stories about Milwaukee, too.    Shame !   That military age younger men from Syria who hate America come over here to get BETTER HEALTH CARE THAN US VETERANS !!!    If you can't see how this illegal move to import these Islamic killers to the USA is on purpose -- a way to destroy our country by Obama and the Dims.... you are blind and deaf !   
       At my age, unfortunately,  I am U.P. here pretty much by myself and too often lonely, and ALL ALONE,  but if I had a close friend who would come over to just visit me,  2- mealy mouthed, hypocritical, so-called,  'pastors' colluded to meet behind my back and 'sort out my human frailties to crucify me, and then have the deceptive goal to set me up for a lunch, and then ambush me by asking me some very private questions in a PUBLIC EATING  PLACE !      Look up the term:  Disingenuous. How about, Dishonest and overbearing ?   I was once trapped in "false religion" in the 'church of the poison mind,'  -- the JW- Cult., where the elders and the Governing Body in N.Y. just loved to spy on people's home/ sex life, in the pretense of 'keeping the congregation clean,'  but we all know that was their form of voyeurism !    I know that such older men only have that venue to get their dirty, corrupt, minds into such 'stimulating' foul enjoyment,  but so do some modern so-called 'pastors/ preachers', and I use that term loosely !    But they use thinly veiled language to cover up their true purpose.... that they are trying to "help me."   Ha!   My biggest regret was that I pissed away good money in their collection plates, so that they could take MANY vacations, when guys like me have not had ONE real vacation in many years !   I wash my hands of them all.  

The bible lists many places were we are warned about the "Last Days" -- that there will be many FALSE teachers in the church, misleading many, and I believe that things will wax worse [grow much worse as time goes on] so that it will be very hard to tell the good bible teachers from the bad ones !!    Beware, and just read/ study your own copy of the Bible, please.    I don't NEED someone else that I came to trust, "taking MY inventory !"   I will be a very private person from now on,  and I will NOT get my trust to anyone lightly, until I know them for a LONG TIME !   In fact, the next time I catch myself donating money to any church without knowing them really well --- I will buy the lumber to construct an 'ass-kicking machine,' to set me a-right.   Ha!

And.... no more "Mr. Nice Guy" in giving away money, gifts, help, or even good advice to those who have crossed me and caused me pain.
     Other than that, it's a real fine RAINY, DREARY DAY where I live, and I want to roast some more meat on the grill, if the rain lets up a little bit.   I also need to cut down on my spending $$$ and just buy the bare bones necessities of life, fresh meat and fruit.   I just bought a new chest freezer, medium size, to store my goodies, etc., for under $200., so I feel happy and secure, for the most part.  
     I have a habit of praying to the Father every time I lay down to sleep, and also getting up, to thank the Lord for another day of life.   And I know that all the bombardment of nasty, evil, corrupt News we get every single day....  but I think that life is what you make it.  Sure, I express myself and vent here on my personal Blog,  but I hope not to repeat it a 2nd time.   After all,  who wants to be around 'sour grapes.'   At least I now know where to make more friends, and where NOT to seek new friends.... LOL.   I also believe that a man or woman can be positive and cheerful, but also alert and vigilant.    'Walk softly -- but carry a "big stick." '

Can you believe, that Germany is preparing for WAR ??   I just knew that they would 'come to their senses, eventually, after allowing that Islamic horde of military age young men, to come into their scared land, to rape and corrupt everything they touch !   Obama is doing the same thing here to destroy America, on purpose,  but the Congressmen have all been castrated, and now also spineless to do anything to stop the pagan, heathen hordes.  
     And that's enough for today, friends.

Warm Regards,

You’re at dinner with your wife, and you’ve just surprised her with an early anniversary gift. 

Her eyes light up and you think, "yep, I’ve still got it."

You leave the restaurant together, holding hands with fingers interlaced as you make your way through the parking lot.

An armed man waits in the shadows, stalking you from behind when suddenly, he trains a gun on you and your wife... 

...“Give me your wallet and your keys!” 

His hands are trembling and his erratic movements make you suspect that this could be more than just a robbery.

You trust your training - and your firearm - but the hand your wife is holding is your "gun hand".

As she panics and squeezes down on your hand with a viselike grip, she begins pulling, trying to hide behind you, and you're losing your balance - unable to break free to reach for your gun.

You’re vulnerable. 

He shoots. 

Here Are 3 Tips To Defend Your
In An Armed Attack...
As you can tell from this scenario, being prepared to protect yourself and those you love with your firearm is about far more than just getting a tight shot group down at the local gun range.

Especially when it's your job to protect someone you love.

You must think and act like a "bodyguard" - because that's EXACTLY what you are.

It could be traveling on a vacation... walking to the car after dinner or shopping... or even just in the "assumed" safety of your home...

You know that you must ALWAYS be vigilant... and that goes double when you're protecting someone you love.

To give you some idea of how you would apply "bodyguard tactics" when you're with someone you love in public, here are a few tips:

1. Pre-Plan Your Companion's Actions.  

The time to work out how your partner should respond is not when you're staring down the barrel of a gun. 

Talk about it now and consider having them immediately break free from holding on to your... hide behind you an arm's length away... and look for an opportunity to run to get help and escape if possible. 

Unless they're also trained and armed, it should be stressed that they are NOT to talk or try to defend you even if you're being beaten. 

They simply need to run to safety!

2. Keep Your Gun Hand Free At All Times.  

When holding hands and attacked, be ready for your companion's adrenaline to kick in and wrench down on your hand.  

This is why you must get in a habit to ALWAYS hold hands using your hand OPPOSITE your weapon so you can quickly get to it in an instant.

Use your power to pull her behind you so you can shield her if your attacker shoots.  

Your primary goal is her safety - at all costs.

3. Train For Extreme One-Handed Scenarios

The "spouse scenario" is another reason why you absolutely MUST practice for a one-handed draw, worst-case scenario.  

Most instructors advise a "4-finger sweep" with your gun hand to clear your shirt over your pistol. 

However, when we were developing our 7-step "Extreme Close Combat Shooting" course, we pressure-tested this technique and found we would often end up snagging our weapon when trying to grip the handle.

Even worse, a few times the gun actually flew out of our hands as we presented the weapon to fire because we hadn’t cleared our shirts. 

Instead, we suggest you train with the "thumb swipe,” demonstrated in our online counter-ambush course.

Remember, criminals will attack when they have the advantage and they know that, even if you're armed, you're going to be a much easier target and less likely to fight back if you're with someone you care about.

These 3 concealed carry "tactical tips" will help you and those you love get home alive!

Yours in freedom & survival,​​​​​​​
