    I would say I am more laid back and +1 on the less drinking. I pretty much only drink at home or the great occasion at dinner but I give my weapon to my wife who is also my driver. 1 drink=no drive no carry for me. I have always considered my self to have a higher then normal situitional awarness but have found that to be even more so increased. I have also noticed I miss my weapon dearly when I dont or cant have it (ie deployed). I have not changed the way I dress mostly because I have always wore clothes that were a little loose fitting (NOT BAGGY). The biggest change I have noticed is my confidence in almost all situations even if its when I am not carrying and I do ALOT of the what if scenerios in my head and with the wife (she also has her carry permit) but the one thing I do with the what ifs is make sure my answer to the if this happens is with in the law.

    Hey MI .45: You always get a surprise when you read this forum. Thank you MI .45 for the word "insouciant". Looked at it and hadn't a clue--now it is a new word in my writings that is very pointed in its meaning. For those who are reading this and missed the word---it is an adjective meaning "free from concern; without anxiety; carefree".

    I liked JJ Flash's 1st comment about being the sheep dog, That's pretty much it.
    I too live in South Carolina, Moved here years ago (Yes! i'm a damn yankee. Well, use to be) This is the first major city that I have lived in. You watch the 6:00 news and shake your head. The worst thing that you had to worry about in Wyoming Co. NY
    was getting snowed in for a week. Here it's different. Freinds ask me why I carry. My response is, At 52 years old, I'm too old to fight off a 20 year old crack head.
    It's reasuring that the wife has a S&W compact on her side of the bed, and I have what ever I pulled out of my pocket on my side at night. We sleep better at night.

    Hey Injuneer: Could not agree with you more on your post and those of JJFlash. At 68 yrs old, I'm the oldest guy but I think the 3 of us would make fine CCW Musketeers. In addition to local situations I find our national state, as it lurches toward a socialist/marxist all -powerful central government a firightening situation and I get comfort, albeit not as much as I would hope, at having weapons in the house should things get more chaotic and frightening. No one is coming into MY house to tell me anything because a bunch of spineless congressmen decided on something that they do not have to also live by.

    Hey JJ: You got me thinking. Maybe I can come up with a cane that incorporates my little Kel Tec P3AT 380 into its handle, where that part of the handle is under my shirt (gotta stay CC) as I shuffle along to my bingo game. Some of those handles are kind of big and bulbus--perfect for concealment. Wadday'all think?

    I'm in. Seriously. If you can design and develop this concept, I'll buy one. I'm actually trained to use a fighting staff. If you could actually conceal a pistol in it, twould be cool, all right. Probably sell like hotcakes, too. Matter of fact, I'll invest in the idea, if you're serious about it. Sure there's not something like this on the market?

    Sounds a lot like a 'bang stick' which they used to use in the less PC days of dealing with sharks. It was a stick that was a few feet long with a pointy end. If the shark got too close you pushed that into their gills and the action cause a shotgun shell to detonate, BANG.

    I am trained with the bo staff and sai. The training carries well to most stick type things (think broom, rake, etc) and for the said think a long flashlight. I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a way to conceal a weapon in a way that made it worthwhile in terms of balance and usability in any type of staff or cane (derringer?).

    I think that a concealed weapon in a holster would be more palatable if you had to use it for self defense than something hidden in a stick.

    Carry a stick and if that fails to keep them at bay draw your concealed, or otherwise, handgun to take care of business instead.

    I was always aware of my seroundings and the people I come in contact with. Since carying, I do not worry about people I see that look suspect, I just watch and avoid them. When I was was younger, I felt I could handle most anything. Now AI hope I do not have to handle a bad situation but I am prepaired if I have no choice. I travel a lot by air. I have not brought my pistol along yet but I am thinking about it.

    I am taking my first airline trip with Mr. XD next month. I have decided that if it's legal to carry where I'm going, I'm taking my sidearm. Kinda feel nekked without it.
