Situation that led to CCDW
I travel a great deal around the state of Kentucky and also make frequent trips to Pennsylvania and Maryland. This often takes me out on the roads late at night. I have done this for some time and there have often been situations late at night that make you stop and think. One one particular trip returning from Maryland and Pennsylvania through eastern Ohio I stopped at a rest area around 1:00 am and went to use the restroom. There were only a cople of trucks and about three cars in the rest area and as I got out of the car I saw no one around. Even in the restroom I saw no one. Upon leaving the restrrom from the buildings side door I thought I saw two people duck behind the building about 25 yards away. I quickly moved toward my truck at a rate much faster then I would have normally. As I got in I saw two men come from behind the building and watch me as I started the truck. I drove away without incident but this made me think about the situation and what these guys were up to. I felt very uncomfortable and that was when I made the decision to carry. I have now had my CCDW for a couple of years and carry on a consistent basis a S&W 442 .38 special or a Bersa 380.
