Super-assassin John Wick never leaves home without strapping on his trusty concealed carry.
But that’s not one of ’em.
Nope… not that one either.
Yep, that’s more like it.
Anyway, here’s a few choice tips he shared during some downtime before embarking upon his latest international adventure.

If You’re Armed, Always Be Armed
If you conceal carry, you’re at a disadvantage. You don’t know where or when an attack may come from.
You react. You don’t act. For you, it’s all about self-defense, not self-OFFENSE.
Which means you must be forever prepared… forever-vigilant… forever ready for anything.
But not like this. A hand is good. A handGUN is better.
Point being, when you don’t know where or when the attack’s coming from, there’s only one thing to do…
… always be armed.
If You Aren’t Prepared To Use Your Concealed Carry, Don’t Carry
Don’t bluff. If you carry, you better be certain that you can and will use deadly force in a legitimate self-defense situation.
As JW perfectly put it: “If you hesitate at the moment of truth, prepare to become a victim.”
Those who hesitate will very likely be disarmed by their attacker, only to have their own weapon used against them. On the other hand, if the attacker realizes you mean business, he will be deterred.
If you’re ready and able to do what must be done, the likelihood is you will never actually have to do so.
Don’t Let The Gun Make You Stupid
If you carry, you carry a great responsibility. You are held to a higher standard of conduct.
You are expected to avoid, not seek out, situations that could quickly escalate and, with a deadly weapon at hand, turn deadly.
To quote JW: “Remember that stupid road rage incident you had last week? Good. Knock it off.”
Your CCW carries with it the power of life or death. That power belongs in the hands of responsible people who understand consequences.
