    Movie theatres

    Went and saw iron man 3 yesturday (awesome movie by the way) and something about going to the theatre made me on edge. So I upgraded. Instead of my ruger sp101 .357 I carried my full size berreta 90-two .40 with an extra mag. Overkill... maybe. Am I paranoid about the whole movie theatre thing?

    Is there really such a thing as over kill?

    The Aurora incident is what finally convinced me to get my CCP.

    Nope, you are not paranoid.
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
    If you think that I may be talking to you, then I am.

    I'm stunned! You actually carried into a movie theatre and nothing happened? The skies did not darken and you were not smote with lightning? Surely you jest, because we all know carrying into a movie theatre brings about death and mayhem! Just ask Doofus Feinstein.

    Great.

    Nothing about Aurora changed my carrying habits.

    I always carry into movie theaters. I usually carry an Asp as well as pepper spray and a flashlight in addition to a spar mag. I don't see any reason to not carry in a theater.

    I don't believe it either. I'll be watching at 11:00 to see the story.

    IMO, the fact you felt you have to "upgrade" to higher capacity simply because you were going to a movie says yes.

    So what you just stated on a public forum is you are now a non-law abiding criminal?

    Me, either. My biggest changes came with Carson City, and a shoot-out here involving a deputy, Brandon Moore.
