Has the spate of senseless violence by protesters and rioters caused you to rethink owning a firearm to protect your home / family / place of business or carrying one (legally)?
Yeah, I think it is time for that CCW thing.
and moreover, more practice. (Which is fun!)
I will be buying some more guns but I’m gonna wait until things calm down a bit.
Never felt the need for ccw, nor have I wanted the hassle.
scheduled my appt with sheriff’s office
i’m arming up
esp now that destructive idiot left declared war on the police
My plan is to step up the weapon for home defense but I’m too irresponsible to carry. Even though I’m an avid hunter, a fairly good shot, competent with a firearm and have my conceal/carry…I realize that if I misplaced my weapon as much as I do my keys, wallet or cellphone…there’s a greater chance an innocent child would get hurt, than I’ll need it for self defense? Damn it.
I had a CCW license but it expired years ago. I carried a few times at first but the novelty wore off fast. Luckily if I want another one all I have to do is mail in a copy of my DD-214.
Missouri is a Constitutional Carry state. I hope to see more states follow that trend.
How would you manage that if you are carry concealed??? Unless you have it in a backpack you carry and you constantly leave that sitting places. It should be on you in a placd that’a accessable. You won’t be pulling it out and putting it down on a counter or couch or table or whatever. Strap it on when you leave the house for the day, take it off when you get home.
I have decided to start carrying when I drive to the city. Guy in his truck pulling a trailer getting attacked on the freeway by people blocking it , made me rethink things a bit.
You don’t know me my friend but…I assure you, with me…there’s a way.
Cops do it all the time. Usually in bathrooms.
I personally don’t own a gun but over the years have considered it. I anticipate doing it at some point.
Actually just renewed my carry permit a month or so ago. When we go to the city I have it with me.
I went through a whole butt load of carry weapons over the years. 1911/.45, various 9mm platforms and a Ruger LPC 380. I just ordered a Ruger LCP 2 in .22 cal. At my age and medical condition, my grip stregth has diminished, and it’s difficult to rack a standard slide anymore.
Since the LCP 2 is pocket carry, I can just drop in the pocket of my shorts and head out the door instead of worrying about using an IWB holster, printing etc… When I was carrying larger platforms, I would occasionally leave the house without my EDC gun just to avoind the hassle of “arming up”
Yeah, I know, the .22LR isn’t an optimal self defense round. But 10 rounds (20 with a spare mag) of 1750 fps HV rounds should convince almost anyone to lay off me.
And a .22 is better than pointed stick.
It’s not the arrow, it’s the Indian…
Yep. Owned guns for years but never felt the need to carry till recently. Getting my CCW this month.
The question I always have when I hear that is why do you need to buy more guns to deal with home/personal protection? Are not the guns you have sufficient?
