All good points Robert I would only disagree, or rather make follow up points to a few things. 1. The “tactical” gear market has shifted much more towards women in the past few years, it is not too hard now to have a full setup for a woman of any size. My wife is 5’3″ and barely over 100 lbs and I have a full setup for her that is not overbearing. Obviously her setup is vastly different from mine and I don’t expect her to be able to do the same things as me. Like you said it is much harder for a woman to be a hard target, but if she is in a group with others who are also hard targets, it can add to the overall strength of the group.  2. You are correct in saying that you can’t just expect to flip a switch in a SHTF scenario and all of a sudden be an intimidating figure if you’ve only ever been average Joe. Where I disagree is that I believe this is something you have to train, and goes into the mindset aspect of preparedness. I’m not the same person in the woods as I am on the street. Being able to flip that switch from a casual mindset to a “tactical” or “Danger” mindset is something you have to train your brain to prepare for. This is a big teaching point in the military, having the switch to go from casual to training mode when needed, and how to know when to use both. Overall I agree with you that Grey Man is going to be the best approach for the vast majority of people, that’s why I wanted to see everyone’s thoughts on it. If you’re going to try and be hard target you need to be prepared to be a really hard target, and attempting to do that without a group is going to be even more difficult
