      I didn't write that I lived on an orca. I wrote "Orcas." That's more than one.
      While we sit on one of them, the others keep adjusting our seat belts.
      Jeeze...


      May we go back to the original subject please? Every time you make a joke, I am absolutely driven to answer with another.
      So it's all your fault!

      If you tell someone you are carrying, then you are no longer concealed.

      While that is absolutely true, there are times when it is reassuring to that other person, to have been told that his/her companion is armed and competent.

      And I do understand what you wrote. Let me qualify a little further: while carrying tell no one you are carrying.

      It is a good to tell family and close friends that you carry but not when you carry. You should instruct them to never ask if you are carrying.
      In a stress situation you don't want someone pointing at you and saying" he's got a gun." That could make you the first target.

      Main reaon to carry CCW? In threat? Or just because you can?

      [QUOTE=usmcj;279311]I didn't author this piece, but I think it to be the best "reason/s to carry" I've ever run across.

      1. We can ignore other basics of personal safety. Every permit holder that I know realizes that almost all dangerous situations can be avoided by vigilance, alertness and by simply making wise choices about where one goes and what one does. We don't walk down dark alleys. We lock our cars. We don't get intoxicated in public or hang out around people who do. We park our cars in well lighted spots and don't hang out in bad parts of town where we have no business. A gun is our last resort, not our first ...

      This is a well reasoned, thoughtful piece. Thanks for posting it.

      because every bit as important as the right to bear, is the responsibility to keep. If it's in my waistband, I know where it is and what it's doing. (NOT getting stolen)

      For the people who carried CCW? Is their a reason that you carry CCW? I mean is it because you feel in threat for one reason or another? Or you just feel more comfortable in case something came your way and you have this readily available, just in case?

      Or simply because its your second ammendment right and you figure why not?

      Any replies would be appreciated!
      I carry because of the JIC reason.

      If we could carry here (we can but we need to submit a request to the chief of police and he NEVER approves) it would mostly be because I can. I love the idea of being able to carry, I used to carry my toy guns on my waist as a kid and I'd love to do it now. BUT I do know that it's a scary world out there so having it loaded and ready would be due to the dangers of an imperfect world.
