    Interesting evening.

    Well, I just had an interesting evening. I stop by a gas station right after work on my way home. I get there and the local Sheriff is arresting a regular on a big federal warrant after he'd been inside, ran across a field, and tossed some drugs in the nearby revene. They find the wad of cash he dropped but not the drugs. right after they all leave a different guy flies into the parkin lot and nearly beats the crap out of another customer. Great, I'm a witness so I have to stick around. I've never had road rage so I don't get the whole scream and yell and foaming at the mouth thing. Anyway he leaves without doing anything more than threaten a customer and the staff.

    Here's the kicker. I am not allowed to carry accross the river at work so I just don't to and from. It's a lot of hassle to stop, disarm, unload, and lock it in the trunk so I don't get a UUW. If either of these guys had pulled a gun I and the girls there would have been in a world of hurt. That was the first time I've been in a situation where I believed I may need to defend myself or others with lethal force and I am unarmed. Guess I'm gonna have that hassle from now on. I'm gonna ship off my little 9mm tomorrow morning to get it fixed and order a replacement grip for the busted one on my .38.

    What make and model is the little 9mm?

    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.

    Murphy's Law says that an incident is most likely that first time you don't 'arm up'.

    Stay armed...avoid Murhy's Law...stay safe!

    Sounds like a 'Stop-N-Rob' in a great area.

    Skyy CPX-1. The little guy worked flawlessly until something in the action broke at the range. The trigger moves in and out regardless of the safety but the hammer doesn't. This is my usual "light" carry. There aren't many small guns I like but this one I do. Good looks, shoots well, carries 10+1, and a lifetime warranty.

    Good luck, Until I got the 9mm back I'd duct tape the grip on the 38 ; )

    Same as a ravine but different.

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.
