does anyone have the same problem as me?
 
So I bought a .45 for home protection and to carry. Well my wife's not to happy about me carrying it. She says she doesn't understand why and thinks that I'm trying to be "tuff and cool" so annoying... I see alot of people here that say they're never more then an arms reach from there gun. I want to get into that habbit. Espeacally since they're has been alot of break ins and home invasions in my area. What's your take on this?

Why I Carry A Gun

I think a lot of it is the unknown. I live in Illinois so we don't have CC, however a vast majority of people think that you are paranoid if you have a gun. Just last week I had a long discussion with a friend of my wife's about how she thinks it is unnecessary to have a gun. Though she thinks it is fine for her husband to hunt. The premise from many is that it is so remote that someone will break into you house why bother. I would say the same about having fire insurance.

I think if you have your wife read some gun facts or books the John Lott wrote it would help.

People also win the lottery, every single day, small odds but it happens. Should I not buy a ticket Because I'll probably never win??? Hells no. Anyone with the "it'll never happen to me" mentality is a victim in waiting...

Your right same as why people wear seat belts or carry a spare tire. The odds are small but if it lands on me I wont be the one in regret
