That's nice, but having been in an armed incident, and having gone to court about it (he's now in prison for 66 years 8~)), I wouldn't want to put my face on it.

I was told when I met with the DA's office that it was public record, but I'd like to keep as low a profile as possible.

I got my CCW a few weeks ago. Since then, I have found out that a majority of my customers and acquaintances have been carrying ALL ALONG.

I am actually late to the party.

It is funny to see some peoples reactions. I had a friend of mine ask once, “Do you mean every time I have seen you, you were carrying a gun?” She was not upset, because she supports defensive carry. But sometimes the reality of is a huge surprise to people.

It is going to take some time, but not too long, for the restoration of “gun culture” in society. And there is no discernible time when it happens, it just does.

These days, in Arizona, if there is some ordinary event, and you mention to a police officer that you have concealed carry, as often as not he will wait for you to “finish your sentence”; that is, it is as if you just told him that you were wearing shoes. “And...?”

Still, personally, I am not about sharing unsolicited information. That I concealed carry a gun (and a knife, which I strongly recommend to those that carry,) is generally just my business, like my carrying a wallet.

At the same time I encourage others who prefer open carry to do so as well, because they help make the cultural change, and gradually teach others that gun culture is not just generally non-violent, but helps keep the peace.

And “Blessed is the peacemaker...”

I was at my son's home for Thanksgiving {he lives in a foreign country, mary'sland and it's not legal to carry there} and I only carried my 38 snubby.

His father in law was visiting from Arizona, and we were talking about carrying, and he said he even has his pistol by his side when he watches TV or eats dinner on his patio.

There are so many illegal aliens near where he lives that he even carries when he golfs.

He said the illegals are an epidemic but the feds completely ignore the problem.

These US citizens are on 24 hour, absolute constant alert.

They are not safe in their homes, businesses, Churches, recreations, cars or any normal activity.

The border states are under siege and obama and his minions look the other way.

What a sad state we have devolved into.

When I was young, we carried guns for hunting but never thought of them as "protection" from gangs of yutes or illegals.

As I leave my car, regardless of how fast the trip into the store will be, even for a gallon of milk, I always have my little friend with me.

I hope I never need it, but the down side would be to need it, and oopppppsssss, I left it in the car...uhoh. That is truly an ohshit moment.

I carry either my Beretta 92FS or my Springfield XDm .45 bi-tone as my primary, and a Kahr CW45 as my backup.

“The border states are under siege and obama and his minions look the other way.” Um, it is far worse. The little barry bastard boy regime under Eric ‘commie-red’ Holder is enabling further invasion. And that’s what it is, not illegal immigration, IN VASION!

At our thanksgiving table, a 12 year old girl was being teased (good naturedly!) by her grandad for her short height.

I stood up, my full 5’2” and said:

I may be short, but I ride a full-size Harley, Play a full-sized bass, and shoot a full-sized gun!”

It was the hit of the dinner.
