~SIGH~ I know EXACTLY how you feel. There are times when I too, will just ignore that little voice inside me (one that has in the past saved my life more than once) when it reminds me that I should really put on a holster and a spare mag to go along with the Glock or Sig or whatever I SHOULD be carrying. And I just say Well, I'm too tired... or more frequently these days: It's too hot to wear a cover garment...etcQuote:

If I'm armed I thank the Lord and then I usually think, "Gee, what if I hadn't been carrying tonight? Would I have sacrificed my life and that of my wife?" If I'm NOT armed, I think "OH $H**!" where is the nearest cover and concealment? How far am I from the car? How many and how close? 'Course those same things run thru my mind if that happens and I'm armed, but I leave out the expletive and worry a lot less, LOL.
