    that pretty much sums up how I feel about carry, its not that I feel any different (now that I am used to it) from anyone else, its a comfort to know its there.

    Good read!!
    Thanks for posting!
    Maybe some day my gun and I will be such good friends too. In the meantime, it's been my dog partner who has warded off more "iffy" people than anything else. Whatever the heck they wanted to say, they suddenly decided it wasn't worth it after she gave 'em a good cussin.

    Very nice read.
    I also made note that he showed his gun to diffuse a situation rather than coming out shooting. At least it worked in his particular situation.

    I thank God that I live in a place where I can have my dogs and my guns because I have come to a point in my life where I would not want to be here if I could not have them both.

    Good article. It just points out how useless a gun is laying on the dresser at home.
