    I do not love the folding tactical knife for its sharpness, nor the bullet for its speed and deadly accuracy, nor the warrior for his glory...I love only that which they defend.

    Well, despite all of the downers, I feel great about carrying. I feel like I'm being a part of the solution, rather than being a part of the problem. Sort of like when I take my recycling down to the recycle place once or twice a week. (unfortunately they don't have curbside pickup in my neighborhood) Sure, I'm just one person and my recycling doesn't make a big global difference, but I can't expect others to do it if I won't. It is the same thing with firearms. I wish far more people became licensed and carried. I suspect violent crime would drop a lot.

    Also, there is a difference between somebody who uses a firearm as just a tool and somebody who genuinely enjoys them. Since they are also a hobby, carrying one sort of goes along with that. I won't deny it. I think anyone on here who has 3 or more guns is probably in the same category.

    Personally, I love the sweet aroma of good quality gun leather, the cool feeling of stainless steel pressed against my skin, the smooth and slippery feel of Speer Gold Dots as I load them into the magazine. I love that satisfying "click" as I shove the magazine home, the sound of the slide racking, and the feel of the gun bucking back against the web of my hand as I pull the trigger almost as if she's begging me to pull the trigger again and again and again...

    But, that's just me.

    I also love living in a country where I'm able to do that.

    I enjoy collecting, care and feeding of, and using guns as well as anyone on the Forum but concealed carry is just a necessary evil.

    I for one feel good that I can legally carry in any way that I wish, with as many pistols as I can comfortably carry, all for the purpose of self defense. To be able to feel some sense of additional security when I know there are people who might wish to deprive me of that which I possess, of my liberty, or even my life.

    I do not celebrate having the ability to mortally wound a perpetrator who attempts to do the same to me. I rest easier knowing that there is the possibility that I may escape a situation that normally might be inescapable.

    If you don't feel that you actually 'love' the ability to carry, just consider whether you'd hate losing it...one feeling is likely to be polar opposite of the other.

    I'm pretty sure I just suffered some ill effects from that video. I got to go put away this 9mm and dig out a 44 now. And, Morris Albert is a sissy too. I bet he doesnt even own a gun.
