don’t like the idea that if I leave my house with a weapon I might have to USE that weapon that day. It isn’t a wrist watch or a favorite belt buckle — it’s a tool that has only one specific purpose.
Yeah… I suck at getting my point across. That you have a CCW does take me aback, but then you a practical person, so on the other side it does not surprise me.
I only carry at specific times, like I’m at work, alone, in the the middle of crack central, on graveyard shift. Even if it was legal to carry at other times, I wouldn’t. I work in an oil facility and wouldn’t want my sidearm to get filthy while there are 3 to 20 other people around. But at 3 AM with 12 foot walls around me and lights, noise, and me wandering around with a flashlight, I think I have a reason to question the motive of anyone I run into, and we have had people appear in spite of the walls.
Days and Afternoon shift, there are people around and I don’t feel threatened. On graveyard, I’m on my own for 2 (on a slow day) to never minutes for the LAPD to respond.]]>
