Chet’s cash-positive everydaycarry.com pocket dump reminds me of an idea I’ve encountered a number of times: mugger money. A spare wallet to hand over or throw down if you’re mugged. The idea appeals to me, but not as a distraction designed to enable a counter-attack . . .
Should my situational awareness fail and I’m unlucky enough to face a mugger again, I may or may not counter-attack. If I do, well, I haven’t practiced the throw-the-wallet-draw-my-gun-and-fire maneuver. I reckon I’d use a Krav-strike-and-draw move. Or…not.
But I love the idea of avoiding the hassle of getting a new Texas driver’s license and license to carry. By separating my ID from my cash, I could miss out on that bureaucratic bonanza.
At the end of the day, my pocket is stuffed as it is. And as the typos in these parts indicate, my memory isn’t what it used to be (which wasn’t great to start with); I could easily forget one or the other of my two wallets.
So…just one for both cash and plastic. You?
