ok let me start off by sayin I know this topic has to have been a million time before but I thought it would be fun to see what everyone would have to say to their friends family or even strangers who happen to be antis an ask the burning question "why do carry a gun, arent you afraid people will think you are causing trouble?" :hand5:

I carry a gun because an Abraham's M1 Tank will not fit in my pocket.

Friends and strangers don't know (so far :banana: ) that I carry, and I don't have any anti-gun family members, so I'm pretty rusty on retorts :image035:

Something along the lines of you'd carry too if you cared about the personal safety of yourself and your family.

+ 1

If that's not enough, I'll lay out the whole restaurant scenario and crazed gunman. That usually drives home the point.

If I do need to explain - which anyways I do not feel obliged to do - I state that I take responsibility for my own safety and that of my family, period :smilez:

I quote again what an old buddy said to me a coupla years ago - ''you are asking for trouble carrying a gun'' LOL! Funny thing is tho - he could not and would not say why. Lovely guy back in UK but a sheep!

Another buddy of mine tells folks - ''I enjoy life, and fully intend to see it thru to a natural conclusion, without some slimeball depriving me of it''! That works!

"Because muggers, killers, and crazy people on meth usually try to stop you from calling the cops. If your lucky enough to get the call out, you have a very grumpy psycho to talk to for a while until the cops can save you." That sounds like your life is in the hands of too many other people.
I'll save my own life thank you.
Hopefully the dispatcher doesnt turn out to be an old girlfriend:tired:

If you can't be trusted with the safe and appropriate use of a firearm, you shouldn't be operating a much more complex 1 ton projectile, either. Been driving long......?

Not sure where I read it, but one guy said "Because I am licensed by the Director of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (Insert the agency that issues your license here) to carry a gun in this state." Thats the truth, if they assume your a LEO, so be it, the directors signature is on my license.

Or the old stand by: I was a boy scout, remember Be Prepared!

Ask them why they keep a fire exinguisher in the house.

And +1 to BCurry1. Be prepared.

For close friends and family, it's "Because I'm a target of the Vast, Left-Wing Conspiracy." :biggrin2:

For anyone else, it's "a matter of responsibility and obviously above your pay-grade."

I was asked that in a local TV news interview. I told them that I was too old to run, so if the time came I'd likely have to stay and fight for my life.

Roger that!

Wait a minute, I don't even carry Geritol. But if I did I wonder what my BUG would be?
