Now that is funny.

Glad you are OK Kerry Ann.

I do worry about my daughter down there too. At lunch time she is usually escorted by her co-worker. Rather large black gentleman who would never let anything happen to her.

The running thing is my serious plan moving forward. My physical therapist brought up a good point which is even a meth head cant run almost ten miles. I have an advantage. If they have a gun or something I will stop and give them my shit, but otherwise I am going to run like the wind.

I would consider running from someone a sprint not a marathon. It's not an advantage unless you're faster than them. I can run 12 miles but it's a 14minute mile.

In long distance I run between a 8 and 9 minute mile.

I'd have to look it up again, but IIRC, the cpl does not cover you to carry knives, pipes, bug spray, brake cleaner, etc. which can all be construed as deadly weapons. that would get you a ccw, though. then you cant have a cpl.

if you already have your CPL, then carry when your walking around, but put it in your bag when you enter your building.

personally, I would care more about my life then that unsightly bulge on my hip

glad to hear it worked out for the best though, and like someone else already said, watch out for this guy because he may still be around the area looking for someone
RUH ROH.

Most people know that in the state of michigan CCW/CPL are tossed around as meaning the same. However, in truth, they both mean something different.

And incase you want to know, what else you can carry.

The Michigan Commission On Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES) is responsible for certifying firearm instructors and instructional programs for the purpose of providing pistol safety training to CCW applicants as required in the new statute, PA 381.
For twenty+ years I have had CCW permits, in two states. They are used interchangably. In Michigan it is a CPL, even though MSP refers to it as a CCW in a bunch of places.

Back on topic: run, fight or shoot, stay safe.

What kind of pussy shit is this

carry a can of zip-strip, bix, or aircraft paint stripper. hit someone with this and it will melt their flesh off. I guarantee it will stop them. all of these products will eat through latex and go right through clothing.

I used the zip with latex gloves while stripping some t/c parts and it oversprayed and melted the glove and gave me a bad chemical burn instantly all bubbled up and disgusting

According to FBI statistics, your best bet is to fight back, then to run, and submitting is your worst option.

Leave it in your car locked up. Winchester makes electronic vaults that you can mount to the floor. You can lock it in there while at work, and then have it ready in your vehicle if needed, or take it with you when you go into a store or the YMCA.
Bingo.

You always have your keys right??? Whilst traveling to and from vehicle CARRY YOUR KEYS IN YOUR HAND nice to have them between your fingers like a brass knuckles looking thing if your need to defend yourself.

I like the small mace that fits on keychains...but they don't seem to last. Keeping a self defense device secured in your vehicle gets you the out you might need.

If he grabs your purse and runs so what..if he continues attacking then that is when you need the QUICK shot to get your out to get to your vehicle.

8-9 minute mile pace is not even remotely fast. (its great for 3-5 miles) but in the 100 yards you need to sprint to get to safety that pace is certain mugging.

I plan to start training to run faster for my high intensity interval training. I also plan to buy a knife tomorrow that I can clip in my clothes.
