    Your Gun Can Defend You, Even if You Never Draw It...

    So, I had heard many times here and elsewhere that the mere presence of a gun is usually enough to deter attack. Something happened to me not too long ago that proves this.

    A few weeks ago, my wife and I were walking through the mall. I was carrying my Glock 19 at its normal 3:00 position on my right hip. I had just finished making some off-color comment when my wife went to smack me. However, instead of hitting me in the side as she had intended, the back of her hand hit the rear corner of the slide. I barely felt this and she was left with a small bruise. So, as you can see, you need not even show your firearm in order for it to save you from a vicious attack!! I chose not to report the incident or press charges.

    And sleep with one eye open. Those type of terrorists have some pretty ruthless tactics to watch out for. Don't Take the "Bait" they offer. I always fall for it though. Good Luck!

    If I had a dollar for every time my girlfriends smacked my pistol when trying to hit me, I could buy a steak dinner...For some reason, one in particular could never remember, she probably did it 10 times.

    She knows where you live, brother (literally AND metaphorically). Watch out.

    But to the other point, you were carrying in a mall? I have not seen one yet that allows CCW. Or concealed is concealed?

    You won the battle, but only gold and diamonds (TRIBUTE) will keep you from losing the war.
