The infamous gray man is a topic covered pretty often and with a collection of great info throughout the internet. Where do you get information on gray man effectiveness and tactics?
For many preppers, it’s through YouTube or blogs. Have you ever read about these tactics from a surveillance specialist? Probably pretty effective, right?
Gray-Man in EDC
When it comes to playing the part of the gray man there are two areas that it comes to mind most. Somer preppers reserve this mindset for disasters and emergencies only. They consider the gray man to be a part of life that is different from the day to day.
The reality is that many people carry firearms and survival gear each day in an effort to be prepared on a daily basis. They might not look the part but people have discreet tactical bags and gear that is well hidden. This is living the gray man mentality.
Gray-Man in Disaster
In a disaster, people are more quick to turn to the gray man method. This is because the threats increase. Of course, it’s very easy for people who are not practiced in this skill to just look even more obvious. It’s not about taking the black baseball cap and setting it on your head.
It’s not about dressing in all black in a crowded street. Rather it’s about looking at the conditions and using your powers of observation to blend in with them.
It’s very important to understand the quality of the information that you use on your preparedness journey. To be successful you are going to need to use resources that are built of experience or real thought. Both are effective sources of information. From there you can build a solid base in a number of skills.
