I am 29 and single. I carry EVERYDAY. I worked as a parole officer, who unlike a police officer deals with all BG. All of my clients did at least one year plus of prison time. I notice things about people in general that the everyday person does not. I tend to understand who is really walking down the street and working in my favorite restaurant, and who is landscaping down the street. (all common ex-con jobs). I know what those obscure tattoos are. I can pretty much spot an ex con way before they tell me. My Mom used to be an anti carry until her favorite grocery store was robbed at gunpoint in daylight hours. Plus, I have carried in a lot of places with her along and she never knew until I told her later. My Dad understands the kind of people I dealt with. Plus I sent a lot of people BACK to prison. Their family, who I had a lot of contact with...did not like me at all. They are still out. I still had to see them at wally world and the mall, etc. So not only are you necessarily protecting yourself, you possibly might be called upon to protect others lawfully. BG are out there even if they have done some prison time. Like a wise old police officer told me...."you won't get shot with a Custom 1911, or stabbed with a Benchmade tactical folder. You will probably be shot with a stolen Raven .25 or cut by a knife from the "greasy spoon". Somehting I tend to always remember.

Why in the world would you bring up a such a topic!
Ugh...single and 27...although my pitbull seems to think she wears the pants in my house.

Never married and just recently became single again. Looks like I have to buy another Bersa thunder because my x girlfriend is not giving me back the one I bought her for Christmas. Anyway I left her off better than I found her. She is now armed and is a member of the NRA.

Well I didn't say in my last post, I am married.
Got married late at 34, mainly due to spending the previous 20 years with a never ending succession of pretty psychopaths and nubile nutjobs.
Then I was found by the calmest person I ever met. Who then introduced me to the gun culture.

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
