Default Is it smarter to walk away from a fight when you are carrying ccw or a wimp?

If you are at a birthday and some intoxicted drunk tries to start a fight with you, are you a puss for walking away beacause your carrying? Once you let a bullet go there is no stopping it no do overs, its path of projectory is permanent the smartes thing in my opinion would be to walk away forget trying to be macho. With great power comes great responibility if I have the power to take a human life I would never want too unless my life is REALLY endangered

the only time to ever pull a pistol is if your life is in danger, period. yes walk away. leave before it escalates into a fight.

Let it go.

What's the bragging right there?

"I bested a drunk."?

I always let discretion rule when I am carrying,

and in retrospect, have become a better person

for it.

The corollary here is, when I'm on a tear, or not feeling in

control of myself, I lock up my CC.

If there is some sort of question as to your 'manhood' or 'machismo' when it comes to avoiding a confrontation...then you have no business carrying a gun.

CCWer's hold ourselves to a much MUCH higher standard of conduct than the general public. If you can't tell the difference between life threatening and pride bruising then, again...you have no business carrying a gun...

It's always better to avoid a fight. Even if you're not carrying you should avoid fighting not just for yourself but because it is disturbing to others. It takes a bigger man to walk away than to fight someone IMO. We're old enough to know that fighting isn't cool.

Best to avoid situations where alcohol and A-Holes combine.

However, if you can't go lock the gun up and come back and beat his a$$

How is killing a drunk in anyway "macho?"

If one is able to "walk away," they had better.

I gave up peeing on fire hyrdants to mark my territory long ago.

If you are a CCW holder, we are held to a higher standard of conduct. Or as one of Robert Heinlein's characters said- "I let him live." Walk. I proved everything I will ever need to prove to anyone long ago.
