I personally have never been in the armed forces and have not been a LEO either, yet I have learned to be prepared for anything in this life. I have not operated as a victim, and don't know how to, so a firearm is a secondary consideration or option for me. Also, I am one bear of a man, and I guess that has always been a part of the self defense equation. A lot of people just don't get when I say that I enjoy shooting and that the CCW is not of a primary concern for me, although age has me considering it more and more.quote:Originally posted by sheepdog
...I am better armed than most folks who are carrying a permitted weapon...my brain and body are trained to handle things...and I want to tell you-RNettles' pic of me as couch potato is real close...I'm an old fat grey-haired guy...who isn't having any, thank you very much...and not a victim...and every man on this forum can develop that mindset ...and the presence of a gun is secondary and may not even be necessary...Semper Fi!!!
