Always Had A Few Long Guns...
around the house, but the actual thought of HD was not really a concern in the woodlands of Nothern Michingan. It wasn't until my move to the bigger cities in my later life that I changed my focus from long guns to pistols while actually thinking about SD/HD.
I became more serious about SD/HD after moving to FL...now it's my only focus...don't really hunt much (not against it, just don't have the access or the desire to hunt anymore).
I now consider my weapons, training, and practice directed at one thing...SD/HD. My thinking has evolved to plan for a SHTF scenario...not a lot of people do that today (that is, compared to the total population).
When I consider my evolution from no personal concerns to my constant 'condition yellow' atmosphere...I wonder why more people can't see what's happening to our society?
Stay armed...stay safe!
