    If he's got your left hand, doesn't that mean you got his right? He'd better be left handed!

    She'll just protect them both. She's probably a better shot anyway. ;)

    usually i use the shopping cart that way both hands are empty. if its just 1 or 2 bags either hubby or daughter carries 1 of them. right hand always empty. in the sitution of holding hands with hubby, he is on my left side. my right is empty and his left is empty. he can shoot with either hand. i can shoot with either hand but if i need to hit what i am aiming at i better have the gun in my right hand!

    It's either me and my USPc on my waistband, or he and his K40 on his ankle or the Mustang deep in his pocket. I'm the faster draw, and he's still in "new to carry" mode.

    The lady, I always open the door for the lady and let her go in first, after that is I check out the area first. Another reason to open the door first, you can check out the situtation then let her go in.

    Opps, I thought we let the women folk in so we'd have some sort of cover if needed.

    I always try to keep my strong
    hand clear,that's one less
    thing to worry about.When i shop
    i use the weak hand to grab items
    off the shelves,helps to keep my
    carry piece hidden.

    I did this as well when I worked armored.

    Awwwww I wish I could! It was taken on 8mm and I never had it transferred to digital. Someday, I hope. I DO however sometimes show it to my American Government classes as part of a valid discussion of the 2nd Amendment & in answer as to how their teacher spends his weekends!

    I remember you posted one video of yourself awhile ago, but I couldn't locate it.
