Do you do anything different under "Orange" alert?

carry a back-up weapon? extra mags? hide in your bomb shelter? do a peace dance to gods? tie your shoelaces in a double knot for luck?

i clipped a spare magazine on my belt this morning in addition to my usual carry piece. loaded a few extra mags at the house and put them in the nightstand drawer. paranoid? maybe. but it makes me feel warm and fuzzy.(er)

what do you do different if anything?

Worry more when I'm away from home.

Other than that, nada.

Like Bobarino, I've added an extra mag to my normal carry dress (two extras now instead of one), but other than that, nothing special.

I do, but then I work for a prime defense contractor. Got to be careful about what seemingly innoculous items I might have in the car that might inadvertently trip off a pig pile when they search it (local PD is at the gate too). The lines to get in the plant are ridculously long.

I did accuse the door guard this morning of being part of an international plot to steal my lunch. :D

I carry extra mags. They are in my car however as we don't have CCW yet...but its coming! Bill should hit the governor's desk this month.

I work in a college town. Lots of Arab alien students. Yes I racial profile and don't make any appologies.

As a large red-headed Irishman, I would be profiled in the steets of London, and I don't blame them. Although the IRA has slowed down somewhat.

Every morning I singlehandedly clear our town of camels at 0500 hours. Then I go back home and have a cup of Freedom Roast coffee with some Victory Vanilla creamer and enjoy some Patriot Toast.

I paint my cat the color of the current threat level. This serves as a constant reminder of how serious things are, and is also a perpetual form of amusement (anyone who has seen a cat that has been spraypainted six times in the past week knows what I'm talking about).

I've begun to carry a S&W .50 in an ankle holster and filled my truck full of speedloaders (3) to back up my primary carry gun.

The Patriot battery in my back yard is warmed up and manned by neighborhood children 24x7. The local Ultimate Frisbee team disbanded due to the immediate destruction of all flying objects with a radar profile exceeding that of a gnat.

Me 'n Kcustom45 have put together a local Rainbow 6ish team, but since we thought "Rainbow 6" sounded kind of dumb, we're calling it "Bloodthirstyelitetacticalunitofcentralindiana 6". Our purpose is to immediately engage any and all terrorists with unnecessary overwhelming force and deliver witty one-liners after each burst of gunfire.

So, I guess I don't really do anything differently under Orange alert. Life as normal.

Switched from vodka tonics to screwdrivers...

Packed an extra roll of Charmin in the van...

Ensured that my neighbor's cat is safe by duct taping several layers of plastic sheeting over it...

Cordex - Someone read LewRockwell.com today, eh? ;) I just might have to stop by Starbucks to see if they have made the switch.

I don't do anything differently. No one living in the United States stands a serious risk of falling victim to a terrorist attack.

I put a locked briefcase containing my favorite 1911 and a holster in the trunk of my car; plenty of mags & ammo elsewhere.

I always have an elaborate first aid kit and about a gallon of potable water in the car - nothing different there.

I monitor the amount of gas in the tank more closely & try to use from the top half of the tank.

I try to stay in Condition Yellow (per Jeff Cooper). :scrutiny:

Not really.

Well, I have watched more TV news coverage of the war but, that's about it.;)

Nope. I've always looked for a good excuse to buy more ammo, but really don't need any more right now. I've just organized it better so I know exactly where everything is located.

Wear my brown wingtips instead of usual black and exhange the purple headband for the ocher one. And eat more oranges, natch. Somehow still doesn't seem like enough.
