NRA Women’s Tatiana Whitlock talks situational awareness in ‘Text Before You Transition’ (VIDEO)

In “Text Before You Transition,” NRA Women’s Tatiana Whitlock explains the importance of using your phone before you transition environments, not during.

Whitlock, who is a NRA-certified basic pistol instructor, trained range safety officer and practitioner of Krav Maga, says it’s a good idea to send a text or make a call to let someone know where you are going. When’s the best time to do this? Before you begin the transition.

If your head is down and focused on a phone while walking through a parking lot or crowded street, you will be less likely to perceive a threat than if you were scanning the environment, Whitlock says.
