2014-12-26_0659Packs….you simply gotta love ’em.  Whether it is a homemade litter on your back or a tactical setup to carry several thousand cubic inches of gear for self-sustainment.  Packs are the item that help us to carry all of our ever-so-important gear.  I get to checkout several packs throughout the year and I am often looking for the affordable go-bag, that carries a lot of gear in a small size.

The Rush MOAB  is a pack that fits all those requirements.  It is affordable, it can carry a lot of gear easily, and it is small in comparison to other setups that carry similar amounts of gear.  This is due in part to the dividers, molle, and internal pockets that it provides.

I did an incredibly quick review of this pack in an effort to let you know its features but to also get to the meat and potatoes of the review…where I give it away.

Follow these simple directions and  you will be in the running to receive this pack.  We will announce a winner next Friday.  If you are interested in this bag but do not win it, you can find a link to it here.

  • In the comments section below this blog piece answer the following question, “What location in a public place should you AVOID, to increase your chances of not being hit during an active shooter situation.
  • If you do those steps you will be in the running for the giveaway, thanks!

      In addition to my comments I’d like to add that when I’m at the movie theater I always sit about 2/3 the way up to the top and close to the aisle so if something does happen I can lay down and peak out into the aisle and shoot if I have to. Also when I eat finger foods (pizza, chicken, popcorn, etc.) I never use my shooting hand. Always keep it free of butter or grease. Probably sounds a little strange but I’d rather be a little strange than a lot dead.

    Stay out of the center of the room and make sure you try to keep yourself out of the front of the shooter. Also here’s a lil tidbit of information for ya and anyone else that’s checking this out. Stay out of doorways. They are called the fatal funnel for a reason. also sitting in a spot where you can see around the room and know your way to the exits. I always try and get my back to a solid wall and not a window seat. You never know when the drive by shooting may occur.

    You should avoid the center of the location, and instead be off to the sides. Don’t be in the immediate view of entrances an active shooter will use because they will focus on those in front of them as targets.

    Thanks for the opportunity. I really like the one strap design of this Moab pack. I use a small thin one strap for my laptop, and being able to grab on the go and throw over one shoulder and still be balanced is great, and then once directly a few steps out of a situation, it can be readjusted over the head onto the other shoulder.
    And staying out of the center of the room is good advice. I do a lot of biker events, and have a sordid past of sorts, and have learned years ago to avoid the center of the room because in a restaurant of public place, there are usually more than one entry/exit. I always like to sit with my back against a wall, and in a place where I can see the entrance, or several entries. This keeps someone from coming up behind you.
    Thanks for all the info on both of these channels, and again thanks for the opportunity to win.

    Merry Christmas to all and a Happy 2015!

    In the video it was pointed out the the average shooter goes for targets in front of them or in the middle of the room. I would ad that they go for targets of opportunity, say like if there was a large group standing off to one side with most of them having their backs turned, the jerk would shoot into the group. I would stay off to one side, away from the main cluster and keep in mind where the fire exits are.

    Depends where you are, but the best place to avoid being hit is immediately after the 1st shot look for the exit etc… front door, emergency exits, back door, & windows. And get out as quick as you can. If not possible get behind a big counter or desk, or lock yourself in the restroom standing away from the front of the door. I hope I win that awesome bag.

    Excellent Craig. I’d like to add a couple of things if I may. Along with staying away from the center of the room, also, avoid having your back towards the rest of the room. Unless there’s mirrors or reflective glass that allows a good clean picture of what’s behind you, you’re sitting blind to everything going on in the room. Second, when you cant avoid sitting with your back to the room (arriving late to a dinner and all the other seats are taken, make sure to look, actively during the meal/meeting to keep tabs on what’s going on behind you. Working on your peripheral vision can help you not “look” like your a meerkat.
    Lastly, when you come into a room, SEE don’t just look. Make sure you take note of postures, hand placements, facial expressions etc… Also, LISTEN don’t just hear. Too often people “hear” noises, conversations, arguments but don’t pay any attention to them and can get them selves into danger by not exercising this basic skill.

    Thanks for the video Craig. Keep helping us learn!!!!! Two thumbs up.

    Situational awareness is key. Always avoid the center of a room, be it a restaurant or a theater. Always sit, when possible, along the periphery, facing the room and/or entrances/exits, and condition yourself to always be observant of other people. Your “spidey senses” should always be trusted as your subconscious mind will often try to alert you to threats that might not always be obvious to an untrained eye.

    Good videos, being from a ” martial arts background” also, SITUATIONAL AWARENESS has always been stressed. I started Judo at 5 yrs old, so I don’t realize I’m making moves or actions in response to what’s going on around me. It’s hard to teach these things to “today’s kids” when it’s second nature. I call it reminding, I guess she ( my Daughter) would call it nagging. I hope just the time we spent as she grew up showed her how to be & what to look for.

    I’ve made it a habit for years to sit along the side of a room and out of the center. I also have the habit of sitting with back not towards the door. That way I can see anyone that enters and pick out anybody that might need to be observed while I’m there.

    Stay out of the center of the room and make sure you try to keep yourself out of the front of the shooter. Turn your damn phone off and pay attention to your surroundings and the person or persons your dinning with. Stay out of doorways. They are called the fatal funnel for a reason. also sitting in a spot where you can see around the room and know your way to the exits. I always try and get my back to a solid wall and not a window seat. You never know when the drive by shooting may occur. When you come into a room, SEE don’t just look. Make sure you take note of how the people are behaving, I.E. postures, hand placements, facial expressions etc… Also, LISTEN don’t just hear. Too often people “hear” noises, conversations, arguments but don’t pay any attention to them and can get them selves into danger by not exercising this basic skill.

    Unfortunately, situational awareness has become a necessity no matter where you are these days. As everyone else said, avoid the center of the room or areas where you will be one of the first people a shooter sees. Don’t have your back to the room or a crowd, pay more attention to your surroundings than to your cell phone, and trust your instincts! Many people have remarked after bad situations that there was something off about the shooter, or he caught their attention for some reason- those are things we need to train ourselves to be aware of and acknowledge there is a reason for them. Scout exits when entering a room/building, as well as things to shelter behind and possible weapons. i have made it a game with my kids, asking, “What would you do if we heard shooting while we are right here?” Amazing how creative kids can be about how to defend themselves in the feminine care aisle at the grocery store!

    Avoid the center of a room, or the front near the entrance. Always be aware of your surroundings, and those around you. Sit off to the side, preferably with a solid wall at your back, with a good view of the room. Also, in the event of an active shooter, you should stay at least a foot away from any walls, because a ricochets often follow along walls, and you stand a greater chance of being hit if you’re hugging the wall.

    Avoid sitting in middle of room or center of room. It’s the first people an active shooter will see and possibly engage before anyone else. That’s good sound advice. You might not want to be the closest to the entrance either with you back towards the door. Sitting with your back to a wall near a side or back exit when you go out to eat is best. Know your exits.

    The center of the room and being right in front of the “active shooter” make sense however the situation can very from shooter to shooter in my opinion. For example if I were sitting on the side of the restaurant or movie theater and I have made someone mad enough to decide to shoot me it wouldn’t matter where I sat. That being said I do tend to agree with you in that the “average” dumbass (my word) who decides to go on a shooting spree would tend to shoot at what is in front of them and in the middle of the room. I hope I am correct and hope that we ALL NEVER have to encounter any “dumbass” shooters.

    Always stay away from center of room, main entrances also avoid
    at least 20 degree both ways of the center line of main entrances.
    Keep your back from exits, windows and main passage ways. Put yourself in a position that you can either see all exits, or be totally
    aware of what might be behind that exit. Is there a fire lock on it?
    if there is a kitchen then most likely there is an unlocked exit in there. always leave your self an out, at least two, Do not sit or stand Always keep you back to the wall if standing or siting, Be totally aware of what going on around you, keep that extra eye on your back side. do not ever let anyone stay behind you more then one second with out knowing where they are and what they doing and watch watch that body language. look at the way people are dressed, could they be hiding a weapon, be vigilant. if in a Church, Theater, or places where people gather for
    what ever, in the back far enough from the exits that a person has
    to take more then 3 steps to get to me. I never sit in an inside seat.
    If you don’t feel comfortable something is there something wrong, or you not being as alert as you should be. Personally I avoid places or areas that I could be trapped. Some friends and family think Im nuts, But if their law or combat military, they don’t think so cause most likely doing the same thing.

    The main areas to avoid are directly in front of the active shooter and in the walk path or doorway he enters from. Also, stay off to his sides for the best area to be in.

    Avoid the center of the room and areas adjoining entry points. Sit where alternate exits can be quickly and safely obtained without attracting attention to yourself or party. Assess situation and quickly move or be prepared to react in place if needed.

    Avoid the front door, because a shooter will shoot the first person he/she comes into contact with, and avoid the center of the room.

    Thank you!

    Stay out of the center of the room or any place where you would be a focal point. And be aware of your surroundings, including exits.

    avoid being in the middle of the room or straight in front of the door.

    Avoid the middle of the room. Pay attention to how and where you sit., stay to the sides. I was taught in a class to “get off the X”

    Thanks for the information. I learned to not sit in the center of the room and to always be aware of my surroundings. This helped me because I always sit in the first row and in the center at the movies. Happy New Year! May your year be full of blessings.

    Do not sit directly in front of a door (keep in mind there may be more than one way to enter the building) and do not sit in the middle of a room. Sit off to the side and be aware of your surroundings. I do this every time I am anywhere. Thank you for taking the time to educate. Many people don’t realize how important it is until it is to late.

    Thank You,

    I agree with you training: avoidance and awareness. As you said, based on the limited stats available and incidental information, an active shooter will most likely shoot the person right in front of them or towards the center of the room. So having a place in corners and/or with viewpoints of entry/exit points would be most helpful.

    Keep up the videos and information. Great tips and/or points of consider.
    person in front of them, center of room

    Avoid the center of the room and stay clear of the area directly in front of the shooter. I just stumbled across your Youtube channel today. Good stuff! Thank you and keep up the good work.

    Never, ever in the middle of a room or where you are the first person an active shooter will see.

    Avoid being near the front entrance, or in the middle of the room. Sit so you can see who is coming in, if standing in line, look around, check behind you, be ready.

    Avoid the center of the room and be cautious of the entrance. Shooters shoot towards the center

    I think that it is important to remember that being in a defensible possession will make a person a priority target. Being a target instead of a random person is a serious disadvantage. One ought to never appear to be a threat to a person with a gun, even if they also have a gun. Being that guy that is sitting near the front of the room but not in the way would be best. As soon as he or she passes into the room they will have their back to you. That is your best opportunity. Anything after that is likely to be a matter of providence or luck.

    I will now be sitting off to the side, not in the center of the room, and try to put my back to a wall, while making sure I knew where all the exits are located. How scary to think we’re not safe, even in a school.

    Avoid the center of the room and area in front of the doorways where a shooter could come in. I really love your site and just found it today. I’m telling my son about this video now so thanks!

    Avoid the center of the room and face the door.

    P.S. (Not sucking up for the contest, lol) – I love the website and videos. I have learned so much since I found them. Still working on my plan, but it is coming along well. Thanks again.

    I should avoid being in plain view of entryways. The center of the room is a bad location being its usually the main target.

    Situational awareness is prudent in any location. You should always know where doors, windows, any other exposures, and any other exits and take a second to think through what you might have to do if a confrontational situation should occur.
