    Exactly right. I am reminded of a McDonald's in Texas and the idiocy of "gun free zones" like Post Offices and Schools. So the only folks without a gun are the honest, law-abiding, innocent citizens, eh.

    My wife looks at me with a hint of bemusement, but she doesn't say anything about me carrying whenever I leave the house.

    Just after I met her I carried her to the gun range with me and taught her the fundamentals of safe gun handling. She had never fired a gun before in her life and I even got her interested enough to try a round or two of skeet. I gave her a 9 shot 22 revolver for Christmas that year and told her to keep it loaded and in her nightstand. She pooh poohed the thought that she would ever need it, but did as I suggested. A few months later she awoke to find a stranger standing at the foot of her bed. She missed nine times but he vacated the premises so quickly he tore the door he had jimmied off the hinges.

    Now she sleeps with it under the pillow.

    Why purchase a gun if you aren't going to carry it? If I want to look at one, I can go to a gun shop.

  5. We're not allowed to carry on the worksite. Today is the first time I've gone anywhere w/o my pistol for several years. Had to run in to town alone to bank and PO, both no carry zones, so didn't take the time to stop by and pick up pistol from trailer. Don't like to leave it in the vehicle unattended, it might get lonely and run away from home. When I'm on home turf, I always carry or have within reach either a handgun or rifle. I keep the coyotes and gas thieves pretty jumpy around home.

    Thumbs up how often do you carry?

    it's with me at all times, even at home. you can't tell in this world any more when you might need it. it's kinda like a spare tire, hope i wont have to use it but better to have it and not need it! right now it's on the table under my computor.

    I carry all the time I legally can except when we have little kids over at the house. Then I'll put it in the gun safe. I don't want any accidents happening - and with kids around - anything can happen!

    Whenever I'm out of bed, except where legally prohibited. Putting on my firearm is just part of getting dressed in the morning.

I also live in a rural Nevada town with an extremely low crime rate (probably because I don't even know of anyone living here who doesn't have a gun).

    For those places I can't carry and can't avoid visiting, I leave the pistol in the vehicle. I still carry a folding knife and tactical flashlight and I've taken empty hand defense and edged weapons classes.
    I wish it was low crime here my Nevada Brother . It's nice to hear that in Nevada or anywhere ! Take care and God Bless .

(Don't even get me started about the trillion dollar Porkulus bill.)
    The basis of the 2nd Amendment is that we are armed in order to fight an oppressive government. Sounds harsh, but there it is.

    For the record, 99.99% of the time, I carry legally. However, I have carried (or at least had a weapon close by) all my life, legal and otherwise. My concern is that a lot of folks are "giddy" about having a CCW permit, think it's cool to carry, as long as the gov't says it's ok. Personally, "from my cold dead fingers" is the creed I follow and I don't give a rat's ass what the gov't says. Live free or die.
    You are my hero also ! Man I love the way you think . It reminds me of politically correct bumper stickers of the 70's ! I miss those tough guys who never bothered anyone ! Different times now I guess (but still miss those times bad !) . Take care God Bless!

    Very true !!! Let them ring the doorbell : stand behind the door ready for WWIII .Take care and God Bless !
