25 Gun Carry and Working on a Convert
My cable TV system does not carry the Outdoor Channel, so I miss out on a lot of great shooting shows, like Tom Gresham's Personal Defense TV and Michael Baine's Best Defense, so I buy the whole-season DVD sets of each of those shows. I was watching PDTV Season 3 and got a good laugh from Massad Ayoob demonstrating the carry of 25 concealed handguns all at once! I would have liked to see him try to run like that. He even had a subcompact in his empty soda cup. I thought it was so funny I showed it to my wife, who was also quite entertained.
I was telling a younger coworker about that scene today. We got a good laugh from it. He is interested in getting a home protection (and possibly CCW) gun, but his wife is anxious about a gun around their two preschool aged children. They're both midwesterners, most recently from Colorado, but now living in Tidewater, Virginia where there is water everywhere. She recently asked for a car escape tool that can break glass and cut seatbelts to assist her in a possible underwater escape. He said OK, but she is much more likely to be a victim of a car jacking, so shouldn't she have a tool for that emergency, too? All he got back was "no guns around the kids. It's too dangerous!" I offered to take both of them to the range, to maybe take some of the fear out of it for her. That really excited him. He thinks she would be open to that. Hopefully we'll convert her to our side and he'll be able to become a gunowner.
