    I selected 'other'.

    I generally carry concealed as a matter of course (and right) but the only times I carry thinking that there might be problems is when I'm working in the pastures around my small ranch. Then it isn't 2-footed BGs I'm watching out for - more like 4-footed types. Or 0-footed types. Or 12-footed types. Or worse.

    One day I was working fence when twenty yards behind me something heavy started thrashing around in a large brush pile. It sounded angry. Of course that's the day I wasn't carrying even a utility knife.

    What I did have was a fencing hammer. Turned out I didn't need it. Whatever upset whatever it was quit upsetting it, and I decided it was time to get back to the truck and head in for lunch.

    We've got bobcats around here. Other things. Some of them work in packs.

    I was a Bail Agent for 5 years(Hence the name). It was actually fun when I was single with no responsibility. Out of all the arrest I made I can count on 2 hands the ones where my life was not in danger. I wish the Taser was around then, I would probably still be doing it today. I am 6'5 280 lbs and I dropped like a sack of potatoes when I got hit with a Taser few years ago. Talk about a great equalizer!

    Glad you're here. Galveston's a nice place to visit.

    Be careful how much time you spend on this site during your sick leave ...

    It could become addictive ...

    Then, you'll have to explain to your significant other why you're not going to work ...

    Next, you'll loose your job ....


    And you'll run out of money ...


    But, you'll have lots of nice friends who will sympathize with you.

    Managing a gym??? Low risk job... so I don't carry... 'cept for the gym bag under my desk. Leaving the gym, last one out, a few grand in the cash drawer, at 11pm... ahhhh, YES. XD9SC.

    And I always say hi to the local PD in the evenings, since we are the last place to shut down in our complex. The other stores all close at 10pm. It's nice, since they linger around the gym parking lot after that. We have some "cute-young-things" front desk staff who leave late, and I ask them nicely to watch them go... Just a courtesy.

    Some jobs REQUIRE you to carry,Some it's highly recommended,or optional,and then there's allowable....

    So would being a good parent/spouse count as a job that requires you to carry?

    Um. I think I might be retired now. Former risk management consultant, cellular and internet entrepreneur.

    Currently recovering from 5 heart bypasses. Hard living and a taste for cowmeat finally caught up with me. Really enjoying this forum.

    Various joint and limb damage has refined my weather forecasting skills.

    Also have an old headwound that troubles me from time to time. To answer your question, yes, I am brain damaged.

    Stick around, and I might bore you with stories of my medication and doctor visits!

    Of course not! They simply surround themselves with men who carry guns so they can honestly say they don't have guns.
