Thread: Do you carry 24/7?

  1. #11
    There many people who have firearms, who don't quite get the point. There are cops who don't carry unless thay are in uniform. There are soliders who go to the office or motor pool without being armed.
    But I can't imagine a soldier who would go on patrol without all they can carry.
    For a civilian with a CCW, everywhere you go is on patrol. You don't know in advance who the next person to enter the bank will be, who the person ahead or being you in line at the checkout will be, who the person[s] at the next stop light will be, or what will happen.
    Carry 24/7 and the worst that will happen is you'll wear some blue of the gun, develop a callous, your wife [if she knows] will think you're paranoid. [Unless she is a good wife and carries too]
    In aviation, the saying goes, Better to be down here wishing you were up there, than to be up there wishing you were down there.

    I usually explain that I carry for the same reason I wear a seatbelt. Never been through a windshield and don't want to test it out.

    The only time I do not carry is, when I can not, because of the laws.

    I carry 2 all of the time where legal. I can't carry where I work but the 2 are double locked in the car in a safe.

    I'd like to car a safe for my car. Once of the ones that go under the seat. I'll have to see if I can fit one under there.

    I carry, everywhere, all the time except as prohibited buy law, soemtimes even then. You just never know when someone wil do something really stupid. When it comes to a nut doing something "stupid" with a gun (or a knife for that matter) there is only one way to fix stupid.

    Be trained, practice and be prepared to act. There will be no time to hesitate, make a decision and act. Never be stupid, never be an idiot.

    I don't carry 24/7 on my person, though I do keep a gun in my car, which I work out of and is easily accessible from my driver's seat (it sits in a pocket on my after-market seat cover right between my legs. easier to get to than if it was IWB or my pants pocket.). According to company rules, I am not allowed to have anything on me that can be construed as a weapon, not a knife or even a 3 or 4 cell MagLight that can be used as a club, much less a loaded firearm. But the company is even less help than cops when the S suddenly and unexpectedly HTF, so I pack in my "office." I am just a paycheck away from ordering a SmartCarry holster, and when I get it, and if it works to conceal as good as it's touted to, I will start carrying my S&W .45 even on the job. I can always find another crappy job if I get caught. I do not, however, have any dispensable vital organs, nor does my lovely wife have any dispensable husbands! Mine and my wife's personal security is mine and my wife's responsibility alone. I don't count on company policy to provide for it, and I sho' 'nuff don't count on the same government enforcers that would confiscate my weapon just because some bleeding heart politician passed an unconstitutional law saying he could or must. I respect cops for the difficult job they do, and certainly wouldn't want to live in this country without them around, but it scares the heck out of me that people who swear to uphold The Constitution of The United States of America fail to do so every time they enforce a law that denies a law-abiding citizen the God-given right of self-defense. And unfortunately, that happens to one degree or another every single day in this country. I will live under the terms of the contract I have with my government even if they don't. I pack.

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    I agree with what you say 24/7

    It is unfortunate that some (Anti-gunners) would restrict our right to self defense. There many stores around which have "THE SIGN", no weapons allowed. This is a legal thing to do in Missouri.

    What that sign says to me is "Hold us up, shoot away, there are no armed people in our store. As I'm sure you are aware, no one needs a conceal carry permit to hold up a store ot kill people for any or no reason.

    The rules which prohibit our rights to self defense are, or at least should be unconstitutional, howver, they are not.

    There has been federal legislation introduced (that never goes anywhere) for a Federal CCW law. This would of course override any State or Local BS laws.

    Like you, I think it is short sighted for some to enforce "rules" that say you must walk around unprotected so any low life can just walk up and waste you at their whim.....


    Keep packing,

    Marc
