6 am who would be there. When I pulled into the parking lot I noticed a small silver car but didn't think much of it, just kept it in mind. As soon as I got out if the car and got up to the ATM, the silver car started up and pulled 2 spaces away from my car. I took a deep breath and finished the transaction and headed to my car. I stretched and took my sunglasses off of my head, but my gun peeked out from under my shirt. It was obvious. The silver car started up and pulled out. I went home. I've told the story to the pro gun and anti gun sides of my family and they all agree I probably avoided some serious trouble. I think my gun saved my life.

In White you are unprepared and unready to take lethal action. If you are attacked in White you will probably die unless your adversary is totally inept.
In Yellow you bring yourself to the understanding that your life may be in danger and that you may have to do something about it.
In Orange you have determined upon a specific adversary and are prepared to take action which may result in his death, but you are not in a lethal mode.
In Red you are in a lethal mode and will shoot if circumstances warrant.

Coop's codes were different than the ones cited above (which the other gent was referring to when he said he was in Condition "orange" all the time).
Now, those are not verbatim, and my description a bit generic and bland. Others have their own take on awareness, I believe Jeff Cooper was responsible for the color coding system.
--Condition Orange: You're focusing on something that just doesn't seem right, however you're not oblivious to other things going on around you.
