What would you do if you were caught in a holdup situation?
Something that is very common and that we hear a lot about in the news is convenience store robberies. Unfortunately, they do happen frequently and you need to be ready. So, the question is are you ready? In this article, we’ll show you a self defense robbery scenario in a convenience store.
While it can seem like a very intimidating scenario and scary, the last thing you want to do is make the situation worst. Every robbery is different.
What’s important to remember is that in most situations, the last thing a robber wants to do is use his weapon. This will only draw more attention and cause him more trouble than anything else.
Therefore, you need to be as cooperative as you can in these situations. If they keep their distance from you and ask you to get down on the floor, do it and don’t fight back.
Give them whatever it is they are asking for so that they can take what they need and get out as soon as possible.
By the way, here are some crucial gun defense tips for your safety.
That said, your goal is to have the robber leave as quickly as possible without causing any injuries. Don’t try and act like a hero by going towards them and disarming them. This can only end badly.
You need to trust your instinct and be aware of the robber and his body language at all times. Keep your distance as much as possible.
