  • Increasing Security

    I have been carrying more lately, much more aware of the surroundings, especially in large, crowded places. I do go to a few Flea Markets that usually have thousands of people on any given day. A mental case could do a lot of damage at one. I am happy to hear that a lot of the Vendors are also carrying. Firearms are openly bought and sold at the market. The Sheriff comes around on occasion but does not stay long.

    Since surgery, I'm not carrying.
    One handed pants and no belt aren't conducive to a holster! LOL!
    Prior to that, my holster and handgun were just a part of my daily dress.
    Never knew just how much I missed it until now!
    Soon!

      I've not changed my habits. The world is essentially the same as it was a month ago.

        Increasing occurrence of shootings could bring copy-cats out of the shadows.

        Trivia: What Country has the most mass shootings (don't know how they are defined).
        Ans: Albania The U.S. is 12th World wide.

            Jimbo, you should have already been vigilant. Nothing is different from previous years. However, you are more likely to use your gun on yourself than to be shot by someone else.

              I have a friend who is a retired armored car driver.
              He does his grocery shopping at night now, and wears his body armor.
              I don't think anyone would be surprised by another mass shooting around Labor Day, esp. in the Latino community, and by another copy cat shooter.
              That is not a prediction. There are people on here who always like to say I was wrong.

                Not such a good use of statistics. You don't know if Jimbo specifically is more likely to use his gun on himself.

                Statistically, YOU (and me too) are more likely to give birth that to be struck by lightening, but unless I'm crazy (don't answer that) I'm betting you and I aren't going to be eating ice cream and pickles anytime soon.

                  jimbo, this has been a quandary since the GCA 1934.
                  Some in our Gov't want us unarmed.
                  These events never get reported because they don't fit the liberal/media narrative.

                      I came to realize recently that I tend to carry in colder weather months when I'm layered up and it's dark out longer. It's also the time of year when we're more likely to shop out of town in malls and such. Complacency of small town living I guess.

                        No I am not. I have shot enough to be proficient with my firearms. I shoot more and better than a lot of LEO's in the Club.
