    Always hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

    I carry all the time except in situations I were am not allowed, and I always carry at home and have a bed side gun. when I am not at home my firearms are all in safe locked in a storage room. I try and stay prepared and in involved in nieghorhood crime watch program and have good relationhips with nieghbors and local police.
    situational awareness and being prepared goes a long way but getting the neighborhood involved goes even farther.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence ... From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that is good" (George Washington)

    I LIVE in Memphis, and when I took my carry class, the instructor asked us "Why are you here?" Most of the answers were for reasons just like this. The Binghampton neighborhood is only about 5 minutes from my house, actually.

    Why I am always armed and then yesterday....

    Yesterday I had the ugre to hit a local supermarket to stock-up on rations for the next week, best deli for miles and 1st sunny day in a week! I looked in my fridge and there was enough fresh stuff for one more meal, so I stayed home. Ate and booted my computer up, found out an armed robber has just jacked the bank-ette inside the supermarket where I was going to go, but changed my mind. Had I gone I would have packed unknown to anyone but me, and had I run into the perp I would have engaged him. But he escaped with the $'s, caused much grief and panic and maybe that is why those with CC permits should carry whenever/wherever it's legal. Would there have been a shoot-out? I guess, (maybe just 1-shot dropping him, mine) assuming I would have won (my training/his surprise, other factors in my favor) that one with one yell to 'Halt' with a bead on the perp, and dropped him as he turned to fire on me, or would his shot(s) have killed an innocent bystander, or worse, mine? Can't carry and think 'what if's' or just don't go there man, and leave the damn gun at home. Almost walked right into a very real situation where I would have used my legal right to stop "by whatever force required" an armed fleeing felon. I guess that's why I should carry.
    Not feeling very f-ing 'heroic' today, just thought I'd share that w/U. :n:

    I carry anywhere I can legally. I do have one bad habit though, I tend to forget about my BUG. I guess I need a check list!:icon_wink:

    A sad sad world we now live in.

    There have been an increase in home robberies in my area, Dallas, were the perp knocked on the door. The home owner opened the door and was instantly shot in the face. Makes me want to become an officer of the law.
    So now I carry on body till I turn off the lights and then Its in arms reach with my surefire. A sad reality that you can't even open your door without a sidearm. :sad2:
