    Why I carry

    I live in Florence, SC....Not the best place in the world, as there is a lot of crime and such. On the news, I saw where three people were gunned down in their home yesterday afternoon. I got some intell from a local contact, and it turned out to be someone that lived on a street down from where my mother and father in law use to live. My son went to school with their little girl. All three shot in the head. Mind you, that is second hand info and is not official. Hard core stuff right there. My wife asks me why I always have a gun on me, even in the house. That's why. My glock comes off my side only to go to bed. And even then, it's not far away. But that could have been at the grocery store, your home, your office, what ever. God help the poor bastard that tries to pull that crap on me or my family. Keep your guns close boys, it's not going to get any better. Check this link out:

    Re: Why I carry


    I carry a concealed weapon because it offers me a peace of mind both out in public and within the confines of my vehicle or home.

    God forbid that the streets of our country will eventually become terrorized and war-torn like they are in some areas of the world. But, if they do, I stand ready to protect myself and my family.

    I agree with you, sir. It is not going to get any better.

    Re: Why I carry

    I carry a gun because I'm not in my early twenties no more. I've outgrown that young & dumb phase where I know no fear & think I'm invincible. always have a gun nearby sumwheres if its not one me. Try & invade my home & ya better have your burial plot picked out as I ain't bothered to learn how to shoot to merely wound or stop.

    Re: Why I carry

    My reason is simple and has probably been said here before. I'm too old to fight and too young to die.
    Guns don't kill people, Dads with pretty daughters do.

    That says it exactly!

    Think before shooting, or speaking.

    Re: Why I carry

    I will say that like some others have, that I may be too old to fight but if it comes to me all rules go down the toilet, it will be "root hog or die". When it comes to being too young to die I am to fricking mean and nasty to simply roll over and die for some POS I intend to go down with my guns bucking in my hand.

    Re: Why I carry

    I carry because I have six young children and a lovely wife who depend on me to protect them and keep them safe. I'm willing to bet that if something happened when we were all out together, there would be nowhere and no way to stash them all and hope the "bad guys" go away.

    Re: Why I carry

    Why I carry? Because I can! Because it's my right to do so. Because being a victim is not in my nature.




    There is nothing in life so bad or so awful that it cannot be made infinitely worse by a lawyer.
