Default pending grand jury decision and ccw

Anyone else. Finding them self's up grading their ccw to a larger caliper and/or capacity because of the pending grand jury decision in Ferguson. I myself snubbing the caliber snobs usually carry just a Kel Tec P 32. but lately I've been carrying my p11 9 millimeter with an extra magazine

My crystal ball is in the shop for calibration and an oil change. Can't predict the future worth a hoot.

Personally, I am more concerned with local whackos and druggies than I am with what happens in Ferguson.

But when the moment comes that you really NEED a firearm, no matter what the origin of the moment, you are going to dance with the one you brought.

Choose carefully, everyday.

I see crazy wackos all the time. Ferguson really means nothing to me. I have a bunch of guns. And I am competent with all of them. If I run into trouble someday, I will be using whatever I happen to have with me. Chances are it will be a 38 snubby.

My thoughts are with the DA's office or what they call it around Ferguson. They evidently decided let's not do a Zimmeman.

Instead of just slapping a bogus indictment like in Florida, and ending up with egg on their faces, they are making the 12 random laypeople responsible by "presenting all sides of the story".

You are a prosecutor damn it. You either tell the grand jury you HAVE a case, or you don't even go there. Now if Wilson is indicted and acquitted, they have covered their sorry a$$es with a fig leaf.

I don't expect the riots where I live.

I arm myself sufficient for the circumstances I am going in to.
I would be heavily armed going anywhere in a St. Louis suburb before this whole thing, and I would do the same afterward.
We lived a few weeks in Florissant, which is right next to Ferguson. It was a bad-news area then, and time has not improved it.

My normal every day around home carry is an original government 1911 parts gun.
My normal going to town carry is a Glock 17.
My normal spending all day in the city carry is a Glock 17 with two spare mags and a Ruger LCP BUG. Sometimes, I will drop a double .22 derringer in my pocket for a BUBUG.
Overdoing it?
Not if I need them - -

Just don't get why people will use any excuse to riot and loot their own neighborhood. Puzzles me.

The only change I would make in behavior is to avoid St. Louis this week. They may have a problem there, but I doubt it will spread with any significance.

Doesn't change anything.

If there is justice the officer will be found not guilty good shoot.

Thugs are going to be thugs no matter. I already have to contend with the possibility and sometimes strong probability of racist attacks. Whether a bunch of racists in st louis choose to riot because a grand jury sides with justice changrs nothing on my defensive loadout

They compensate themselves for the social injustice.
