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.
