I carry, because I'm not strong enough to carry a cop around. But seriously, I go to work very early in the morning, and have been approached a couple of times where having a gun allowed me to go on my way. Little Rock isn't exactly one of the safest cities to travel through at 3:30 am. when you have to stop at red lights, either in the cage or on the bike. BTW, someone asked what folks favorite CC weapon, I have several different ones, but my favorite has to be my S&W Shield 9mm. Reliable, easy to shoot, easy to CC and accurate.
I once never carried, didn't even own one to carry and it never bothered me. Then I started going to the range with my step father, and then I got on with the Department for my career, bought a Charter Arms 38 for off duty carry & BUG, and now, all these years, retired … I carry everywhere outside the home, and even carry in home if I'm in the basement or shop, even if mowing grass.
I sold that Charter Arms long ago, but I replaced it and augmented those. Retired, I still qualify yearly to carry nationwide. Usually do it with both a revolver and a former duty pistol (semi auto). Last year, just did pistol. This year gonna take my P229 for pistol, and my M-27 8-3/8 for revolver qual. I'll wake em up.
lol , Told her about my newest acquisition. Got a new cc. S&W Gunsmoke variation. has a pocket hanger so no holster needed . State I live in I guess ,,,,, so I'm told ,,, that as long as 80% of the gun is covered up it's considered concealed.
Been carrying a Walther PPK for many years but man it was heavy!
So we went out and bought two new concealed weapons......A S&W Bodyguard with a laser sight and a Ruger LCR.
Very lightweight and shoots well.
Shoot Trespassers " on sight "
I found that statement in the following article...
I surely hope that some idiot does not take that as "legal advice", sounds like a good way to be eligible for 2 hots and a cot...
