Had to drive up to Tacoma yesterday with my dad. When my parents arrived at my house, each of them and my wife all asked at Seperate times, "why are you taking a rifle with you? Don't you already have your pistol?". My only answer was that I'm going to be 2 hours away from home and I don't want to just have a pistol if something were to happen (SHTF, earthquake, liberals declaring a dictatorship or whatever). Am I being overly paranoid or under? I also take a couple days of medications with me as wel as water and fire starting equipment. What do yall do? And do you ever have to explain it?
