    If the question was: how many guns can a people carry?
    answer is: lots

    straight answer: always
    Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.-- Anonymous

    Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.

    The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.

    I carry 24/7...... sometimes more than one.
    "Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you.
    He is training with minimum food or water, in austere conditions, day and night.
    The only thing clean on him is his weapon.
    He doesn't worry about what workout to do---his rucksack weighs what it weighs, and he runs until the enemy stops chasing him.
    The True Believer doesn't care "how hard it is"; he knows he either wins or he dies.
    He doesn't go home at 1700; he is home.
    He knows only the Cause.
    Now, who wants to quit?"

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    Depends for me, but I usually carry in my car, if I'm out in the woods (gotta be careful of the wildlife, human and nonhuman forms). So most of the time when I'm out of the house and not doing something or going somewhere where carrying is forbidden. Have a handgun on my night table for when i'm in the house...and a coach style side by side 12 guage...

    Ahhh, you had my hopes up for a Sig 2022, Springfield XD, or even a S&W M&P.

    Why would anyone own a glock?
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    I wear my gun as faithfully as I wear my seatbelt. Neither has saved my life yet, but it only takes once.

    Because it's a good gun at a good price. If you want to donate to my gun fund, maybe I'll be able to afford a Sig.
