Here is a previous post of mine.
This is a discussion on Thought I was "made" today... within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Here is a previous post of mine. http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...d-reading.html...
I suggest that if you can find in your inner self the will to inflict violence on someone who is trying to victimize you, and can back up that iron will with all the force that you can muster, you will most likely be successful.
As I read this, I was thinking, "That's my dad." He's all the time talking to strangers about their kids, truck, trailer, etc. And he usually opens with some corny line like that guy used. We just roll our eyes. Maybe it's a good 'ol southern boy thing- he is from Alabama.
I doubt you were made; it's just another weirdo making small talk.
"Lord, help me to be the person my dog thinks I am."
Here in Tennesse we have a "handgun carry permit" so it is not required to be concealed. Though I do believe there is an advantage of keeping concealed. But I do not worry if it does happen to uncover. I simply recover it.
No worry in Ohio, Open Carry is legal too.

When I'm wearing my cowboy duster I've actually carried my Coach Gun concealed around people. (Unusual circumstances, rarely, but successfully. And legally! Hard to explain.)Incidentally, Chuck, I think it is time to act. Call your congressman about drawing up legislation that would make it legal (nay...mandatory!) for a father of four beautiful girls to carry a Remington 870 everywhere, anywhere.
Thanks, everyone, for all the kind words. Although I don't mind at all, my real intent was to get everyone to think about "it" before "it" catches you by surprise.
Scene: Chuck Brick is "printing," so he gets a complaint from a frightened citi-sheeple: Cops must appease the taxpaying fleeceball and slap my wrist.
Scene: Officer Joe Cobb gets the same call: citi-sheep is relieved and proud to have a cop around when s/he/it finds out the gun also has a badge in case anything comes down.
Mental parity with a goldfish, but we have to swim with them best we can without frightening them.
It's easier to just keep it out of sight. If/when we get open carry (back!), I will undoubtedly do some of both depending on circumstances.
Checking it ususally is a dead give away to someone that your carrying.

guns and pretty daughters.....
My daughter brought home a guy she was dating a while back.I had just gotten back from the range and had my Glock 17 on the counter while making dinner(in a holster).his eyes got huge and he studdered a bit.I really didn't think much of it at the time.She eventually broke up w/ him(thank God)and I recently saw him at the place he works.He asked if I was still shooting"all those guns"?I said of course.He then says he was scared to even come over to the house after that.My daughter called him "Nancy" everytime he asked if I was going to be there....
