So thankful to have my solo

We had a police officer shot in my town tonight. A guy beat his wife then set his house on fire then shot a cop when he showed up after the guys girl friend called the cops. The officer is in unknown condition at this time. I am thankful I have my solo to diffend my house because the guy who shot the cop is still at large in my town. So has anyone who carries ever had to use their solo for its purpose ?

Currently still waiting for my background check to go through to get my new Solo so I have to depend on my Colt .45 and various other guns around the house for home defense.
The problem with these is that they simply are too big to carry on my person at all times ( even around the house ).
Thus the need for a smaller defense gun ( such as the Solo ) that can easily be carried on my person in just about anything I have on.
Glad you are safe and secure in the knowledge you can defend yourself and family if the need arises.

Most body guards never have to use a weapon, mostly their knowledge of how to stop a situation before it escalates to actual weapon use.

The world of law enforcement where I dealt with this kind of thing everyday in the second largest city in America and the use of firearms by body guards was very very rare if at all. I'm talking about the "use" not threats of use.
