    Even the all knowing and never wrong federal government changed from the "War" Department to the "Defense" Department. For the same reason we want to change. "Defense" and "Defensive" better describe what each of the groups are about than "War" and "Combat." "Defense" and "Defensive" may or may not mean an actual engagement in war or combat sometimes it is the simple presence that is a deterrent. We as concealed carriers all say that we hope we never have to use our guns, but are prepared to use them. Even in a situation where we may have to show or even draw them we hope that the action of showing or drawing will defuse the situation. When we draw we are prepared to use the gun if necessary, but hope not to have to. If we are forced to use it we are trained to shoot until the aggressor stops not until he is dead. Sometimes death is the result, but never the plan. Defensive Carry is the philosophy of this board and the DefensiveCarry name reflects that.

    Ahh, okay, got ya now, sorry. That was not a planned change and as George said, was something missed when I was cleaning up after the move. The page you are talking about is the portal page and I have been toying with the idea of removing it. It is not widely used. People usually just bookmark the forum and come straight in....

    This a great forum as it is, but I do believe changing the name to Defensive Carry would be a positive change, IMHO.

    Either way, I love the site and recommend it to most people. I like to read it, and not so much post to it mostly cause I can find what I want to know because someone else has already answered it. Keep it real, people will know quality when they see it.

    (I havent read through the entire thread so forgive me if I am repeating anything)

    IMO, it needs to be changed. The name Combatcarry seems to come across abit, shall I say, aggressive.

    Go for it! :)

    Your call. I'll be here no matter what it is called. I love this place. On that note, I am going to go ahead and make my donation to the forum.

    I'm too late to vote, but my vote would be for DefensiveCarry.com

    It really is what the forum is about, and what's more, it's much easier on the feeble brains of the Less to have to justify to them. Who can disagree with defense?!

    (I know, don't answer that.)

    Althouh voting closed, it seems like, statistically, the percentages stayed pretty much the same through most of the time it was open. I think it is a more accurate statement of what we are, although I think we all agree that self defense is combat when it comes right down to it. Hopefully, most of us will carry for defensive reasons but not have to learn about the combat side of it firsthand....

    My current plan is to change it somewhere around mid-May. I have to many other projects going right now to make the move. I'll make an announcement a week or so before and provide redirects to the new site.....

    Someone said DefenseCarry would be more politically correct which I don't care about but I will say that DefenseCarry better describes this wonderful site.

    Call it whatever you want. This is a great site with a group of people that are second to none. I feel fortunate to have found this site, it is a wealth if information. I tell everyone I know who owns a gun or is thinking of buying one to log on and take a look.

    DefenseCarry is more PC, but I really don't care.
