    Unique and different? Or do you prefer to blend into the crowd and not be noticed?

    I have no problem throwing on a cape and some crystals and going somewhere, as my husband in the tie tries to make people think I'm not with him.... :D Which kind of person are you?

    I'm a button down guy. Even my doo-rags are conservative.

    I'm honestly not good at blending in. I can do 'not getting thrown out'.

    I almost always wear combat boots for grip a T-shirt jeans, colder weather a leather jacket with inside pocket usually a flashlight to hold in my fist as I walk in parking lots I have sting tactical gloves in my glove box I do wear them in colder weather but not in the summer they would stick out and are illegal to own they have carbon fiber knuckle plating. I don't try and blend in but I don't hide in the shadows like a thug, I don't look for trouble but being back in the city has made me paranoid and being an empath I can tell you this: acting natural helps but having the element of surprise when someone tries to set you up is the key to going home safe. If you are the victim and you get the jump on the attacker with a good uppercut under the chin will drop him and just get in your car and drive away (don't stick around) even though you were defending yourself you will still go to jail for assault with an illegal weapon. Any security footage shown of the confrontation will show you defending yourself. I also wear a hat in colder weather to keep low profile making eye contact with a druggie seems to invite him into your comfort zone. I'm not scared just don't like to start anything that I can't get off my chest if this ever happens to you-you will feel guilty no matter the situation.
    God is always the best co-pilot but it doesn't hurt to be ready. Never carry a gun keep it at home you can't use one without being identified. I don't carry knives either being pulled over and having to explain things like knives, guns will always put up red flags, if they do find the gloves just say something like oh they were a gift from my brother or whoever and "I only use them when I have to clean snow off the car they are uncomfortable", they will probably just write that off as a "you didn't know" and lecture you on them and they will most likely take them, but you can always get another pair they aren't that expensive.
