    When my trusted circle that knows I'm going to be carrying ask, I've been going with the "In case I have to shoot someone" response. If they ask for clarification I just tell them that the first time they need a gun and don't have one, they'll understand.

    I like the "I can't carry a cop" it's short and to the point.

    I so rarely hang around folks who don't know I carry (and don't approve or carry themselves) that I no longer have a snappy comeback. My most likely interaction in this regard usually involves other high school teachers. I dislike protracted historical arguments so I usually just say the following: Well, I'm not a wolf....nor am I sheep -- like YOU -- so that makes me a SHEEPDOG and if you want an explanation of THAT...just google: "I Only Hang With Sheepdogs" and leave it at that. If they want to know bad enough, they'll do the google and read the essay. If not, I don't have to waste my breath.

    I carry because I have seen the enemy and they are closer than you think. My life and the lives of my loved ones require the speed and power of 45 ACP 230gr
    +P Golden Sabers. And last I looked, no vic ever got a toe tag from being joked to death except when the punchline came from Mr. Remington and Mr. Winchester.

    'Cause I like guns, I want to carry them, I like to carry them and I can carry them legally.

    They are also the best personal protection device reasonably available (besides your brain).
