My husband is my best friend and we go everywhere together so he would have my back. Thank you for your concern, but I have to live and carry in a way that works for me and what I am doing works. Where we live, it is wise to always know your surroundings.
While i respect that you have to do what you're comfortable with, i also look like someone you wouldn't wanna f**k with. 6' ft tall, 210 lbs with a 33" waist, tatts and everything else. I just plain look like a mean motherf**ker (even though i'm not) and i've been mugged a couple of times. I've had more than a couple guns shoved in my face and i can promise you, the BGs don't care what you look like if they think they can get what they want from you. I repeat my earlier point, if you're not comfortable carrying an automatic in condition 1, get a good revolver it will serve you well and give you peace of mind.

I can literally rack my gun while I'm pulling it out of my pocket so it's all good. Off topic a little but some of my 8th graders met my husband and were afraid to speak to him because they said he is scary and looks mean. He is my bad guy repellent. Haha

What was the outcome of your attacks? Did you shoot them or even draw your gun?

I was only armed during one of those incidents. Yes i did draw, fire, and kill the man threatening me. The investigation was over fairly quickly, the guy had a long history of violent crimes and there were 2 witnesses.

Most of the other incidents i simply complied, better to lose the $100 in your pocket than your life.

Yes it is always best to comply. Not quite sure why people argue over their purse, car, etc. Those things are all replaceable.

So being shot and killed because you don't want to lose your mercedes is heroic?

And without one in the chamber (at the start) there is a good chance that your action in trying to put one there, on the draw or whatever, could be bobbled.

I hear folks say they might drop a gun, or it could have a malfunction..............how they want to be uber safe in spite of themselves or others..............but then they trust themselves to manipulate such tooling under stress, in varying conditions.

Really, if somebody wants my car, wallet or whatever...........they're not getting it.

It's mine, not theirs.

Letting the badguys make the rules means they can play the game however they want, and often it doesn't just end with stealing.

Try to take my stuff in a threatening manner and die, pretty damn simple.

My stuff, my friggin' game. I win, they lose, screw the courts and papers.

But then I live in a decent state, allows for such defense

Good mindset, Hookeye.

PaysWithZombies : If you do not resist the goblin ( Jeff Cooper's term ) , you do nothing to deter future attacks on the good citizens and you lose your Mercedes . If you resist, you may win even if you have no gun-- and if you die, you die heroically because you stood up to evil for everyone's benefit .
