Thread: have you ever had a friend....

    have you ever had a friend....

    That is close. And totally disagree, and frown on the fact that your going to conceal and carry? And how did you handle the situation?
    Just wondering as I told a older close friend I had scheduled my C&C class and he very annoyed that I would do that and believes no citizen should be allowed to carry.
    Thanks for any thoughts.

    i would just say its a personal choice i have made in order to better protect my life, family, and property from someone who wishes to do it harm. 911 isnt always an answer in the now and you cant always carry a cop with you. if he dont like your choice thats fine, but hes not a good friend if hes judging you like that. why does he feel people should not beable to defend themselves against an armed attacker?? seems a lil off to me...

    Templing,
    The only person that should have any effect on your deciesion on CCWing, Is you. If he is an True Friend, then he should respect you, and your deciesion to CCW And if your friend doesn't respect your deciesion, then maybe it's time to find another friend that shares your desire to Protect Life and Property.

    Our country was built on those very Princibles.All the men, and women who have given their life in order for us to live free.Just because we think we are safe from foriegn invasion We'll past events show us 9-11 we are not safe.

    It's our job has Civilians to protect our way of life.there are way too many threats out there not to CCW.Remind your friend of that. Good Luck and Welcome to CCWing

    Deep and lasting friendship is about trust, respect, and caring. Knowing that your friend is against the idea of CC, I would hope that YOU would choose not to broach the topic when you are together. Your friend, in turn, should respect your choice as well and leave you to defend yourself and your family as you see fit.

    You've brought up the topic, found out that it doesn't sit well with that friend, so leave it at that. There are a million other things to talk about, and likely a lot of other topics that will bring you closer--stick to those topics if you wish to remain friends.

    I shot him.



    I'm joking. Never been in that situation but if I was I'd certainly agree not to carry in his/her home or car if it made them uncomfortable. Other than that, too bad.

    One of the benefits to concealed carry is you conceal the fact you are carrying. Don't tell people you are carrying and nobody will have a problem

    Never had any friends, that ever questioned me on carrying a firearm concealed or open carry.

    Funny, in college I had friends who were and are still totally Liberal/Progressive/Socialist/Peaceniks who are afraid to even look at a firearm. The cool thing was that I had a California CCW and a special permit to carry on school and college campuses because I was on the University pistol team. When the federal investigator came around to do background check interviews on me for my Fed TS/NOFORN clearance, one of the most ardent of my anti-gun friends told the investigator, "I am against anyone having guns, but if there was one who can responsibly handle carrying a gun, it would be [he named me]." The investigator and my final interview told me this was one of the the best recommendations he had heard. I passed the background check and started my career the next year.

    well thank you all

    Some really good thoughts on the this as I have many friends from different backgrounds and I learned a few lessons from making my decision to carry.
    This choice is not to be taken lightly as it effects me and my family and all around and I a daily bases A responsibility, that effects making the right choices anytime I carry.
    But I thinking at this point to not really tell anyone as it is my decision, and right and unless someone notices I carry it better they don't know in the long run. As feel 90% will never know anyways if am armed.
