    It's Gonna be a GREAT Day!

    I am getting ready to head into town for a doctor's appointment.
    I am also dropping my 6 year old son at school along the way.
    I usually always pocket carry my Kahr PM45.

    I asked my son if I should carry the .45 or a 9mm today.
    His immediate reply was 'Take the .45, Dad'.
    When I asked him why the .45, he replied 'Cause 9mm is for wussies, Dad; you know that'.

    You have to love that kind of comment from a 6 year old!
    I wonder where he learned that...............

    6 year old to dad, what should I carry to day, Dasiy or Gamo?
    Gamo son, you know a Dasiy will put your eye out.

    I love it! I love to give my 9mm-shooting friends a hard time at the range by saying "And this is why .45 is better than 9mm", then dropping one of their 9mm rounds into one of my empty .45 cases. The 9mm round nearly disappears. and rattles around when you shake it. My brother, who always has a comeback, could only grin and shrug the first time I pulled it on him.

    That made me laugh really hard.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Breathe in a bag, guys, this is humor, not an anti-9mm thread.

    I think everyone is taking it in stride. My kids say goofy stuff all the time. my wife writes as much down as she can catch, I think she is going to write a book when the kids grow up.

    Random fun fact, i was taking the white house tour today on my trip to DC, and as i was leaving i saw the guard walk out of the guard house that is just to the left of the south entrance, he had a p90 slung across him, a glock (i THINK, didnt get a great look) on his hip, FULL tactical body armor, and enough ammo and accessories to start world war 3. needless to say, if the secret service thinks 9mm is a good enough round to protect the president, and whoever else they are assigned to, id be comfortable in carrying it. Oh, and the other guy in there appeared to have the same exact setup. :)


    Just my .02, i really didnt know where else to put this, and since there was alot
    of 9mm "bashing" i figured this is a good place, heehee.

    I do like the larger bullet size of a .45, but I still would not feel under-gunned with my 4" XD 9mm. I actually have been looking for a small 9mm for carry.

    I like my SW642 revolver, but the thought of a quick reload is virtually impossible under duress. You just can't beat an auto for fast reloads. Maybe I'll look at a Kahr 9mm, as I have had a very good experience with my PM45.
