There are over 550 million firearms in worldwide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11? (Yuri Orlov [Nicolas Cage] Lord of War)
Yes, but my situational awareness was taxed...skeletons, pirates, huge frogs....and I was composed enough that I knew that not one of them was a threat...

If I'm not in bed or the shower I'm packing.
Yeah i was.
A armed person is a citizen-An unarmed person is a future victim.
of course....I went walking with my two young kids. 642CT on my hip.

My wife and I always sit out on the front porch with the candy bowl and a pitcher of iced tea. This way we can talk to all the neighbors when they bring their kids around.
Nowadays all small kids have a parent standing at the end of the walk while their kids come up to the porch. This is somewhat sad but definately necessary.
I was out there in shorts,long shirt,and barefooted. On my hip was my Kimber and in my back pocket was my ASP. My usual blade was on my dresser for the evening.
Neighbors don't have a clue as to how safe their kids are when they are in my yard.
That's how I like it. -------
Yes of course! I am right now.

I was while walking around town with my son. Too many "goblins" running around.

I was open carrying in the house. Had the gun on one side, cuff and mag on the other (badge next to holster) got a few looks from the kids at the door.
There are no problems in life too large to be handled by the use of small arms and high explosives

Especially careful at Halloween - no incidents, though - but never let your guard down!

eep! Pretty suspicious that they were not carrying anything to put candy in.
What about reporting them to the cops? I mean, I know they might say, "Hey, fella, lots of kids are out tonight," but that seems to have had a possibly sinister air to it.
Let's hope they were scared straight by your open carry.
Naturally, the police would probably say that a person inside his own home is free to come answer the door like that, especially if he is not brandishing the gun...
Not sure what the open carry is intended to accomplish when it comes to greeting people in an otherwise friendly way at the door... I would like to read more comments from those who do so, please.
