With most weapons without the proper training, continued training and use many people are actually hurt by their own weapons.  Within the responsible parties weapons are a great asset and benefit.  It is my opinion to have a basic knowledge of self defense such as martial arts and be in shape.  Having the ability to escape the confrontation is always best but that is not always possible.  The last thing you want to do is carry a gun or knife in  and the attacker uses it on you especially if they were not armed going in.

Being ex-military and having the training on weapons, knowing how to maintain, operate, carry safely and safe guard (properly secure) weapons I would be comfortable carrying a weapon but I choose not to.  Growing up in the neighborhood I did, having military training and martial arts training I am very comfortable with myself in most circumstances that I can escape, evade, protect, defend or secure the threat.  I would highly recommend that all Real Estate Agents take some form of Martial Arts for basic self defense, it could save your life or someone you know!
