I put my pistol and holster on when I get dressed in the morning and don't take it off (except for my shower) until bed time. I don't just throw a pistol in my pocket. It's always on my belt. I read a report the other day that stated that over 60% of all self defense encounters happen in the home. If you don't carry at home.....you are really taking a chance with your safety.
    Got a link to this report?

    I'm saying if I feel the need to "gun up" from what I'm currently carrying (or not carrying) to go to a particular place, then I would likely not go to the place.

    In other words, I do not carry so I can go to places I would not otherwise go to if unarmed.

    The flipside of that is I don't feel undergunned when I'm carrying a 5 shot, nor do I feel particularly vulnerable on the occasions that I am not carrying.

    Guess that is the answer indeed, if PEF is like me that is. Anywhere I feel like I CAN'T go unless I am armed is somewhere I probably have no business being in in the first place. Don't go stupid places or do stupid things.

    I carry a Glock 26 (which everyone knows is 9mm) and fell that it is more then capable for a SD round. Some would say that a .45 or .357 would be a better choice but 9mm with JHP ammo will stop anything I would need be.

    Some of us have been in situations that they had to draw or felt like they needed to get ready to draw. These people have drawn from their situation and carry at all times. They also are more likely to be carrying heavier large capacity weapons. From my personal experince in the CA I found my 6 shot revolver did not have enough rounds to go around. When I got back home I bought a "wonder nine" 15 shot. I only carry autos with reloads for self defense. Nothing like a real life experince to make a believer out of you.
