My GF and I are talking about something, like doing things around the town or something... whatever it is it leads to this conversation: I say "I'm going to get you that Kimber Saphire you wanted in .38 to carry with you when we go out, and so you can have it if you are ever out alone or with friends and I'm not there." She responds, "why would I ever need that?" I respond, "because some 'explicit person' may want to do harm to you and you should be able to protect yourself." She says "nobody would ever want to do that with all the other people out there to target, chances are it will never happen!" I say "sure, maybe, but ya never know!" Well she went out with friends to celebrate a birthday while I worked all night, and what does she tell me when I get home? Oh yeah, some crazy drunk tweaker chased her and her friends down Hawthorne after dinner... I'm smug about the fact she is safe and I think I just won my case. Unofficially she is taking a CC class soon.
