Bust my chops if you want.......
Bust my chops if you want.......just asking a question but I welcome honest feedback and insults if you like. I have thick skin and no one on here will hurt my feelings.
Why do you carry?
1) You and you alone
2) You and loved ones
3) You and the innocent sheep nearby
4) everyone except bad guy
Why do I ask? I, for one, carry to protect me, my family and anyone nearby in the event of a whack job hell-bent on killing as many as he can. You know the ones I'm talking about.
So, if you carry for ANY reason other than # (1 ) PLEASE tell me you have MORE than a mouse gun in your pocket, seriously.
If I need to take a shot further than the end of my arm, the little get-off-me gun WON'T do !!!
Anything less than a 9mm is not really going to do much, let alone be very accurate past a certain point. Thank God for the .45.
When I first started carrying I did ccw a measly .380 for a little while. Again, within arms reach it would hurt the perp and at least scare him, but I soon saw the light and sold the couple .380's I had and went bigger. I still have a .22 Beretta as a mouse gun, it's arguably more dangerous than a .25 or even a .380 in my opinion. Yours may not be the same, no worries.
Please carry, and carry the biggest you're comfortable with.
