Thread: Why Do You Carry Concealed?

  1. #731
    I carry concealed because I am too young to die and too old to take an azz whoppen.

  3. Agree I personally have a permit to carry concealed, however our state Michigan permits open carry. Its our 2nd ammendment right and I honestly believe if more criminals see or know the weapons are being carried by law abiding citizens the would think twice before committing a crime.

    I carry for many reasons. I am 62 years old. Just got my TX CHL a few months back own my first gun ever. My wife and i are three years part. BG's tend to pick on elderly, think they are easy targets. I want to protect my wife and I. I have most of my grand kids living with us. the majority are Girls from 9-15. I want to protect them, whenever i am with them. Houston seems to be attracting gangs that kidnap young girls for sex slaves. There will be NO IFS AND OR BUTS if this scenario occurs. The weapon comes out and all 25 .40S&W will be spent if needed. I carry because I can.

    (Dear NSA. If you are reading this please note this is a hypotghetical scenario)

    LMFAO... NSA, I guess with what is going on nowadays we have to make sure that if we joke we clearly note it so those (Big Brother ) who are reading our posts and emails etc know that you can say something that is meant to be a joke. In the past we wouldn't have had to note that it was a joke and that is the sad part.

    Well you know that the NSA, DHS or someone is capturing and scanning forums that discuss constitutional rights for the magical words on their list, which for some absurd reason include tornado, storm and other descriptions of natural event, i have a different message.

    Hey DHS, BITE ME

    Upon further review, and after much though and meditation, I carry a gun because I can't carry armed security person.

    i've been oci ng for about 20 years, just recently got my cc permit (NC). reason i like cc better is if you see me with a pistol (OC) i am a target. bad guy may jump me just for my pistol. lord knows i dont ever wanna have to pull/use it but ... if im cc'ing by the time the bad guy see's my pistol its going to be too late for him. im not a big guy and due to health probs i dont wanna have to wrestle with bubba to keep my weapon. And i am always aware of my surroundings and the 21 feet rule. plan to visit usacarry forums a lot in the future. some good reading here. god bless 2&14

    Let's analyze this for a bit, shall we? You have a confrontation with a tweeker and his knife. The crack house full of tweekers falsely accuses you of threatening them with a gun "brandishing". Now - which action would you see as more likely fitting the description of "brandishing or threatening":

    1. They see a gun openly carried in a holster on your belt that you have made no motions to reach for or expose (open carry) or
    2. They see a gun that you have, at a minimum, made an intentional motion to expose (concealed carry)?

    Seems to me like #2 is more more likely to raise the question of "brandishing" than #1 does.
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.
