The ability to “wait your turn” and show tactical patience is a good virtue to have. You need to wait for an opportunity to present itself where you can safely and discreetly draw your firearm. If you remove your firearm while having a gun pointed at you, the chances are you’re going to end up being the one getting shot.
The point of tactical patience is to maintain control in a stressful situation and not allow it to turn into a gunfight where bullets are flying both ways. Even in a self-defense scenario, the incident is still considered a shooting because, well, a gun was shot.
For example, consider the shopkeeper in this story. They waited for the robber to look away at another customer before going for their gun. The shopkeeper then shot the criminal, who swiftly fled the scene, only to be apprehended and disarmed by police later. The shopkeeper displayed tactical patience and situational awareness, which helped them effectively stop the criminal and avoid being shot.
Patience takes discipline. Check out these hacks to help increase your discipline.
