    Cool Carry every day

    I am retired, and live in an apartment.. I carry everyday, even when I walk the dogs.. There was a shooting here about 6 mounts ago, it was a gang related......... So I am packing from the time I get up till I go to bed, then its on the night stand beside my bed...........

  3. To the person that does not carry in church ,google church shooting. Not getting on you I went throught it to. Would rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6.

    I keep to myself, avoid trouble and follow most of the rules.

    I am armed for SELF-ish reasons and I am real good at keeping a secret.

    I find that a quick-draw at a full, or at least half-length mirror is a great practice. I can't practice drawing at the range, so I unload, throw in a snap cap, and draw - double tap - holster, repeat....until my heart's content. To me, the target (me in the mirror), is better practice than just firing at a sillhouette. The "perp" is about 3-5 feet from you, and it gives you something tangible and with depth at which to aim. Since I'm looking at myself in the mirror, I'm also able to critique myself. Plus, it's fun.

    What's the use of having a CCW if you aren't going to carry...religiously. I don't expect any trouble sitting here at my computer with all of the doors locked, but that doesn't stop my from wearing any way.

    I carry every where that it is legal. I am fortunate, I get to carry at work the owner and his two sons have permits.

    Be safe and shoot straight.

    Well I would think having a firearm bed-side would be considered carrying while you sleep, would it not? Anyway I don't go anywhere w/o it. If it's not on my body while at home, it's easily accessible. About the only place I USED to consistently go w/o a sidearm was my g/f's grandparent's house, after they asked me not to. I let them have their way for a rather short period of time, but I'll be damned if the one time I need it I'm gonna be stuck in that smelly old house unarmed. :) What they don't know can't hurt them, after all lol.

  9. I have carryed daily for about 2 years now. Got so used to it, then had to take a business trip to Las Vegas....had to leave the pistol at home. Took me several days to get used to not having it on me.
    Why did you have to leave it at home? As far as I knew carrying (openly, anyway) was perfectly legal in Nevada..
    ...I am not Rambo, John Wayne or Clint Eastwood. I do not play quick draw in the mirror...
    Are you implying that you don't practice drawing at all? I hope not. If you don't practice drawing until it's second nature, you're liable to shoot yourself and everyone else but the intended target when you try to draw under stress. I practice my trumpet in front of a mirror, I practice speaking in front of a mirror, and I practice drawing in front of a mirror. Heck, I've practiced throwing darts in front of a mirror (gotta be careful not to hit said mirror, lol). Practicing in front of a mirror helps more than your ego, lol. It allows you to see what you're doing right and wrong, and gives you a pseudo second set of eyes.

    The scariest thing I've ever seen anyone do with a gun is fumble around with a loaded one while trying to draw from a brand new holster. You NEED to practice your draw, or the risk of hurting yourself out weighs the possibility of protecting yourself.

    Last night after supper I accidentally dozed off on the couch, when I woke up, emptied my pockets & went to the shower. There was my weapon with everything else that was in my pockets.

Hey! why never know when a "varmit" may be a threat.
