A common saying that I hear quite a bit as I travel to teach around the United States is “I need more tools in my toolbox”. This is a common expression used in the security and the law enforcement training community. I will generally shock most people when I respond with my disbelief in this principle. I actually believe the opposite. The operator that has a toolbox full of tools will find that most of his tools just simply get in the way when he has to start digging through his toolbox looking for an answer or “Tool” while he is under the pressure of a stressful situation.
