    Oh, it's another Texan

    Longtime lurker, finally decided to join the fun so I can occasionally post. I've learned a lot using this site. I've had my CHL for roughly 3 years in Texas and have previously had permits in other states as I've moved around.
    Many years ago in Indiana I had a group of teenagers/young adults waving guns at me as they passed me on the road. I was armed, but I slowed down and called the police with their license number when I got to a phone (pre-cell phone). It scared the tar out of me and was the most serious potential incident I have experienced while carrying.
    When younger and not carrying I was badly beaten by a group. I didn't end up in the hospital, but I don't plan on allowing that to happen to my family or me in the future and I realize how lucky I was the injuries weren't permanent.

    Welcome from South Carolina.. .
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Welcome from Virginia.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! Incidents like you described are even more common today than what they were back then & now you have a family to protect as well as their breadwinner. It would be foolish not to protect yourself.
