On August 2015, a man opened fire on a Thalys train on its way from Amsterdam to Paris before his assault rifle jammed and he was subdued by passengers. Several men, including active U.S. Soldiers and Airmen, were responsible for saving the passengers from the assailant. The event was later depicted in the film 15:17 to Paris and the hero passengers were presented the Legion of Honour, the highest decoration in France.
We will never know when the next terrorist attack, public shooting, or natural disaster will occur, but we can be prepared for it by always keeping a high level of readiness. Even if you don’t have extensive military or tactical training, you can prepare yourself with the right protective and/or rescue gear.
What are you currently doing to prepare yourself for the unexpected?
The Crate Club is a great start to expanding your loadout gear, everyday carry gear, and even home defense gear.
These events are a serious threat to our security and our families. There is no substitute for the right gear. We take our gear selection seriously, and we hope you do too.
