You're describing a "high level alertness," such a soldier or police officer on a specific mission in a dangerous area. A fair to high chance of dangerous encounters.Situational awareness implies I think something is going to happen. If thats the case I'm not going to be there.
I'd like to think, like everyone else here, that I am totally situationally aware all of the time. The weapon is for those times when I am mistaken about that
Situational awareness is a level of awareness in otherwise low threat environments, but paying attention to the comings and goings and happenings in our surroundings. Such as out to dinner with family in a safe area, working from home but paying attention to who drives by, driving the kids to school, and so forth. A generally low chance of danger, but being ready to confront or react to it.
