I'm with C3 on this'un, and in the words of a well respected shooting instructor, "if you carry a firearm, people will call you paranoid, that's just stupid, if you have a gun what the hell do you have to be paranoid about!"

I wonder how so many people have been lulled into such a false sense of security

I got into an argument with my sister and her husband last month after they told me that they wanted to take a trip to Mexico. I asked where, they said Acapulco. I asked if they had just heard in the news about the mass beheadings that occurred. They replied it doesn't happen in the resorts. WTF?!?

Why is that people automatically assume that the entire world is just like their cul de sac neighborhood?

Almost forgot ... you're paranoid!

I agree with your comments about a trip to Mexico. I have never been there and have no desire. If they are going to a resort, then why not just enjoy a resort here in the good ole US of A?


As for paranoid, I don't think so. You are prepared and it's a personal decision as to what you carry.

Ha, I may have to use these.

Didn't Clint Smith also say, "A handgun is for fighting your way to your rifle which you shouldn't have put down in the first place"

Seeing the direction that this country is heading in, I think it is a very good idea to have not only a CCW handgun, but also a long gun behind the seat, in the trunk, whatever. You never know when some nutcase is gonna snap.

I've really been thinking about keeping an AK in my trunk just in case.

I'd rather be called paranoid than dead.

It is easier to get out of jail than out of the morgue, carry what you got. For me a G26 with a SP-101 .357 in a ankle rig and a tactical shotgun behind the seat of the truck. Paranoid I don't think so, prepared yes.
