    The Concealed Carrier's Creed

    Found this while browsing the Internet and thought I'd share. I may tape a copy inside my gun safe.

    "My weapon is for the protection of my life and the lives of others. That is its sole purpose. It does not confer rights, responsibilities or authority greater than that of other citizens. It merely allows me to protect life.

    I will seek never to have to use my weapon. If I can avoid conflict, I will. If I can resolve conflict, I will. If I can escape danger, I will. If I am forced to bring my weapon to bear and use it, I will.

    I will acquire superior training with my weapon. It is not the weapon that saves lives, but my effective use of the weapon. I will ensure my training is sound, my knowledge is current, and my mind is prepared.

    I will know, understand, and obey all laws and ordinances concerning my weapon no matter where I happen to be. Failure to do so harms all who seek to legally carry an effective means of self protection.

    I will know and follow the Four Rules of safe gun handling. I am a member of a growing community that must foster and teach safe and responsible gun handling if the community is to survive."

    How about the bold print?

    My weapon is for the protection of my life and the lives of others.

    I sort of thought it should have said "the lives of my loved ones". That's the version that will hang in my safe.

    Okay, I'll play. "I will acquire superior training with my weapon." (?)

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    A simpler creed:

    You don't know I have a gun.

    If you know I have a gun, you know I will keep you safe.

    If you found out I have a gun within the last few seconds, found it changes your plans dramatically, and are now in fear for YOUR life, you should be.

    I play for keeps.
