This is from January 1994.


From what little I gathered, in most cases is somebody who knows the place beforehand (worked there/knows friend or has relative, etc.) and that means they do not want witnesses left alive.

Here is another excerpt from the article:

There is no doubt that having a gun to defend yourself increases the odds of survival, especially if the bad guy does not know you have one (Hint: Nobody at work needs to know), but that does not mean you should surrender your life without a determined resistance. Yes, you may get shot, but it may not be the pop in the head he wants, and you may have a chance to survive.

Submission means an almost guaranteed death.

5 thoughts on “Never accept the “invitation” to go to the rear.”
  1. And this is the error in “don’t resist, just give the robber what he wants”. A robber has already threatened deadly force; if you “just give” you’re betting your life that nothing worse will happen. But the robber might decide he doesn’t want witnesses. Or he may just shoot you for his notion of “fun”. The only right answer is to treat robbery as attempted murder and shoot first.

  2. My martial arts teacher always said fighting is a last-resort option. If there’s a way to resolve things without it, do that. If it’s something they want, it can be replaced.
    But if they’re trying to get you into a van, then it’s not something they want; it’s you. In that case, you absolutely should fight like there’s no tomorrow. Because odds are, if they get you into the van, there won’t be.
    He always used “the van”, but it applies equally to the back room, closet, basement, or anywhere out-of-sight and/or mobile in which you essentially “disappear”.
    Knife or no knife, gun or no gun, you try your damnedest to take that M.F.’er out before he gets you where he wants you.

  3. I remember this story.

    I have learned from several sources that if you are commanded to move/change locations/get into a vehicle, all bets are off. It will probably not end well. (See: The Inion Field). Do what you can to get away.

  4. First, Always Be Alert. .Always.

    Second, Always Be Armed. Always.

    Third, as John Correia often says on his Youtube channel “you have to wait for your turn.” But when it IS your turn, Make It Count. Train and Practice. Then Train and Practice some more.
