    There was a time when I carried in the home but eventually got lazy as I figured I was being a bit over the top. Then one day a guy attempted to talk his way into the home from the garage entry door. I wasn’t really sure at the time so I let it slide. A few months later the same guy was at my front door with another BS story to gain entry and that time I was certain. Think I learned? Nope! I still didn’t start carrying in the home due to the low-likelihood mindset. Well, this latest news flash has my attention so I’ll be looking for a new vapor-weight to tuck away. Finally, a new reason I can actually live with to buy a new gun.

    Looks like Jonathan, Lequai, and Bebeshuree will be getting loooooooong vacations from society.

    We can see nothing from what's known, that would justify charges against her. The only thing we can figure is that maybe they are saying she beat him "excessively"... which would be fairly stupid. .... but we do have a very idiotic DA who's always out to make a name for herself and who doesn't believe in self-defense, is anti-gun, etc.

    I'm just saying, those little Ruger LCP's are so tiny and lightweight they are invisible in your pocket.

    Mine is always either in my pants pocket or on a neck chain holster if I'm wearing gym shorts without pockets. It's so tiny, there's not excuse not to have it on you. Same with my wife. her's is always on her person everyday.

    It may be a .380, but it's seven rounds which is always attached to me.
