    Mas,

    I've recently observed a few incidents on the internet of bad guys using a sucker punch or cheap shot to incapacitate a victim. This ends up with victim knocked out and the perp taking his wallet etc. What's the best way to defend or prevent from being hit in this manner? I carry concealed 100 percent of the time and don't way my gun in a bad guys hands or worse. Your expert opinion is greatly appreciated!

    Alas, jcrane, there ain't no secrets of the ninja to cover that one. The only answer is constant alertness and always knowing what's going on around you. (And it would be an awfully good idea to know how to block/parry/slip a punch.)

    best,
    Mas
