    The economy caught up with me and i'm without a carry weapon now

    Been without a job for several months now and well I had to sell my tarus 1911 today. I'm pretty bumed out and i feel naked now. I've carried that weapon every day for a year. Had to sell it though since no one will give me a job and rent is due.... I feel naked.

    I sure hate to hear of your misfortune. I wish you the best of luck, and hopefully everything will get better soon, and you will be armed once again. Stay sage!

    Sorry to hear about your luck, and having to part with a weapon.
    I hope things get better for you, and a roof is more important than a pistol at this point. Sad, but true.

    Prayers your way, and best wishes.
    Stop acting like we're fightin' for "freedom". We are ALREADY....free.

    Just remember, your mind is the weapon... the rest are just tools.

    Keep the faith brother... best wishes to you.

    Fox, I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

    I'm certain your future will promise better days soon.

    As to "feeling naked," I know the feeling. I'd the misfortune to hurt my knee and had to take painkillers that prohibited me ( MN law) from carrying.

    All the best and stay safe.

    Hang in there. Don't give up. It's just a temporary setback. You'll be carrying again soon. Until then, my thoughts are with you.

    Just prayed that you would find a job. As someone else already said, "Keep the faith." Hang in there the best you can.

    Just starting to crawl out of this myself. I was out of ajob since November of 2009 until three weeks ago. I took a low paying temporary position with the state of Florida.

    In that period of unemployment, I sold every gun I owned except for my on carry piece. My XD45. I also sold all of my hard earned ammunition and am now down to two boxes of hollow points.

    Times are tough and may get worse. Hang in there and search with a vengeance for work. Take whatever you have to do to get by. Apply for unemployment immediately, don't wait.
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    Sorry to hear that, but to go with out your carry piece? Do you not have a kid or two hanging around that you could sell off first?! lol (seriously j/k)

    Hope your luck turns around soon so you won't be running around naked.

    I had to keep telling myself that I bought mine as a tool to protect my wife and I when I was faced with the same situation a little over a year ago and had to sell my glock 27. Now things are better and I was able to buy the sig that I really wanted in the first place. Things will get better, keep looking!
