A chunk of tooth fell out of my tooth, my first dental disaster. I have never had a crown or a root canal or any other extreme pain episode regarding my teeth. Braces in the 70′ caused enough discomfort to last a lifetime, I hope. So, with one of the little points on a back molar now missing, I immediately called my dentist’s office for a fix-it job. They could see me first thing the next morning. What does this have to do with precision shooting and marksmanship? Absolutely nothing, at first glimpse. However, all good carry and conceal methods look like absolutely nothing at first. Pro-active self protection looks like absolutely nothing, at first. But, when I pay attention, when I take the time to note my surroundings, I see many interesting connections. In my dentist’s office waiting area, for example, I spied a number of magazines among which were issues of Garden & Guns. Very quietly, we can announce who we are without saying a word. How we conduct ourselves and what we surround ourselves with make loud statements. With that, it is good to know who The Good Guys are. Thankfully, I only needed a filling to repair my tooth. But, more than that, the circumstances reminded me to remain fresh, not stale, in noting my surroundings, noting who surrounds me, paying attention to the details. This makes me reliable, trustworthy and someone you want to have around in case of emergency, even if only for dealing with a broken tooth!
