This overlaps other threads a lot - so not really original - we have dealt with several aspects of why to carry and how often.
But here I am posing just one simple question - ''how do you know that today when you go out is risk free''?
I personally do not - and many would agree. Some tho will claim (seemingly!) a sorta precognitive ability. :smile:
I have no axe to grind with the personal choice aspect but - I do certainly not claim myself to know what the heck any and every day or journey out may hold.
Yesterday - paying for gas - I watched a very ''odd'' individual in the mini-mart area - he was collecting potato chips, sodas etc but - some spidey sense made me very aware. I doubt he was a threat but - who knows!! Just call me Mr Paranoid LOL :biggrin:
Tell ya what - older you get - the more you don't trust other folk!
