"Discreet Carry" does sound nicer than "Concealed Carry" but so freaking what!

To the anti's, it's still a gun!! (Now everybody gasp!)

Let's not fall prey to the word games of the left, it won't work. Plain speech works in our favor by showing us to be the straightforward, honest people that we are.

My belief is even an armed thug would rather attack an unarmed man. If the dirt bag knows you are armed and the defenseless person across the street is unarmed they will select the unarmed prey. These people don't want to put any extra effort into their form of robbery. If they were willing to put effort into obtaining money they would do something that would piss Al Sharpton off and get a damn job.

If you want the bad guy to know you are armed, get a CCW t-shirt and bumper sticker. You can order them off Zazzle | Custom T-Shirts, Personalized Gifts, Posters, Art, and more. Find a design you like and you can have it put on anything, even a coffee mug or refrigerator magnet.

If you don't find any design you like, tell me what you want it to say or look like and I'll design it on zazzle and you can order it. I did a business logo t-shirt for KWGaryM and it's nice, they do a good job.

And the bad guy can be prepared for me and my gun, but I bet he doesn't know I have another gun he's not even suspecting in addition to the first gun. Either that or I'll just kick his ass for him and save my ammo.

Shooting them would be much more lady like. You can use each gold tooth as a target.

No, it just allows them to size up the situation and defeat your known defense. Ask any military planner about the element of surprise. If someone has selected you as a target, it is best not to have already shown them your ace in the hole...

I like your comment and couldn't agree more. Here in Iowa our new ccw law takes effect after the first of the year. It will allow all ccw permit holders to carry concealled or open and will also allow you to consume alcohal while carrying; just don't become intoxecated. I've had a ccw permit for over thirty years and at 72 yrs. young, I still carry all the time and shoot on a regular basis. A snub-nosed 38 in my front pants pocket works fine unless I carry my 1911 holstered and under a sport jacket. dogwalk
