The first that came into my mind when reading this story was: STUPID! If you hear your front door being knocked at 12:00 AM, there is a 99% that the person behind it is a criminal and not your neighbor in need of a bowl of sugar. Some people just live in a sugar coated World where they think evil is only present in the movies.
"If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. That's ridiculous... If I have a gun, what in the hell do I have to be paranoid for?" [Clint Smith - Thunder Ranch]
I carry my Glock where ever it is legal, especially at home. I usually don't go anywhere that it is illegal to take my gun with me.
Since it is always with me, when I open the door I have it, and I am the one that opens the door.
Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
If you think that I may be talking to you, then I am.
My gun is in the safest place it can be, in the holster on my hip.
I can't sprint much anymore to go get the gun if needed. Besides, it feels just like wearing my multitool all the time.
Feel naked without it.
The only time I'm not carrying is when I'm naked. And even then there's no guarantee I'm unarmed...
"The flock sleep peaceably in their pasture at night because Sheepdogs stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
A guy I once worked with carried his gun 24/7. He even wrapped it up in plastic and took it into the shower with him. We all thought that was hilarious. What a nut. Until the night he came out of the shower to find a burglar armed with a knife had come through his window. Yes you can fire a revolver through a plastic bag..
When your conducting business you need to make sure the customer you anger dosen't settle his beef's with lead. My $.02.
