So I went to the thriftway 2 blocks from my house to get my daughter some dinner and while i was inside someone was getting shot in the parking lot. I thought about leaving my gun at home but thought why have it and why have a chl if im not gonna carry it? Since i sold my kimber 4"the other day I have been a little reluctant to carry my 5"springer but decided to carry it and i guess this is why we carry... I was in no danger since this was a personal thing between these 2 guys but what if he figured im screwed now might as well go ballistic? This is why we carry is it not?We can be a sheep,or we can be the sheep dog. I will remember this next time i decide not to carry my handgun,5-6 minutes earlier and i could have been in his crossfire.
