CC, Over kill is an understatement
IMHO, being packed to the hilt with what u feel to justify urself as safe shouldn't make people or yourself paronoid, just don't be paronoid for not pulling the trigger to get yourself out of the situation or anyone else from such as well. It's one thing to say such though in words but to act is truely heroic. I'd certainly like to think myself as a life safer IF I was packing and soon will with my .40 in HOPES that one day IF I had to safe a life from a bad situation I could perform such duties as I do now in the Military that I still serve. I'm not like many Army and Marine Corp or a few others that have had true combat experience being in the Navy sailing the high seas but I've had my brush of sticky situations to where at least my knife got me out of them. Kind of hard to carry a gun while over seas you know when you're in a foreign port. You should always train like you hope not to get into a fight. Plus get some close combat hand skills as well, as a gun can easily get taken away from you also when u under estamate your perp.
