Corona Situation – Which Protective Measures Should You Take

Corona Situation – Which Protective Measures Should You Take

Self-Defense

Gun sales have risen through the roof. People worry that a struggling economy may lead to some level of civil unrest. At the least, there are fears that some individuals will be driven to crime. Firearms are a great way to ensure your personal safety. Home alert systems, vigilant neighbors, and barking dogs can all be effective, but these do not offer 100% security. The peace of mind that comes from knowing you can defend your family is priceless.

If you do purchase a firearm, make sure that you familiarize yourself with it. Guns are mechanical objects that require a level of skill and experience to operate competently. Hopefully you would never be placed in a situation where you would need to use your gun. If you were though, the stress and fear for your family’s lives could make it difficult to react calmly and operate your firearm efficiently. The only way to counteract this is to practice with your weapon. Learn proper gun safety, practice firing it, and learn how it works. The steps to firearm proficiency can be some of the most important protective steps you take.

Handguns are effective in the sort of close quarters engagements that would happen in a home. You can also conceal carry them when in public. Glock is a great recommendation for handguns. They offer models in most calibers and of varied sizes. The M&P9 is a classic among shooting enthusiasts and police forces. A .357 revolver or a 1911 will offer reliability and stopping power. Shop around and find what is right for you.

In simple terms, shotguns fire a spread of pellets. This means that you don’t have to be as precise, and in a hyper-stressful situation like a home invasion, that extra leeway may be a life saver. Another thing to consider is penetration. Rifle rounds, and sometimes pistol rounds, can travel through walls and land on unintended targets. Shotgun shells generally do not have this problem. This may be worth considering if you live in close proximity to other homes. Two top picks would be the Mossberg 590 and the Remington 1170. There are many more options to choose from though.

At the end of the day, either one will have you well prepared.

Stay Home

If no one left their homes for weeks, people would die of starvation. We all must perform some basic tasks such as grocery shopping and refilling medications. Asides from this, we should be staying home as much as possible.

When you travel to the grocery store, buy enough supplies to last a week or two. If viable, you can consider using grocery delivery apps. If you are on any medications, see if you can switch to 3-month refills. Anything you can do to lower the time spent in public places will increase safety.

Of course, there are many things we enjoy that aren’t bought at grocery stores and pharmacies. Luckily, online shopping offers a safe way to obtain them. You can probably find what you want on sites like eBay, Amazon, Wish, and a ton of niche retailers. Health officials do not believe the virus is likely to transmit through the mail. To be careful, you can retrieve your packages and mail, wash your hands, and let them sit for 12-24 hours before opening them. Don’t retrieve packages directly from the delivery drivers though, as that would somewhat defeat the purpose of ordering online. If you are religious, then find ways to connect with your faith at home. Many pastors are live streaming services. You could spend this time reading your holy text to learn more about your faith.

We also need to take care of vulnerable people. People vulnerable to this virus include the elderly, smokers, those with heart complications, those with lung conditions, people with diabetes, and the immunocompromised. If you do not fall into one of these groups, but you have loved ones that do, offer to go grocery shopping for them. You can leave their groceries in front of their house for them to retrieve.

We are all going to have to adjust our daily lives and take protective measures to get through this crisis. Do what you can to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
