I second playing John Wayne though, who didn’t want to be John Wayne growing up.


Maybe scared is the wrong word. Is there a post edit feature on here?

Grit better make sure that wallet holster is legal if you have to use it.
Last I checked that falls under AOW all other weapons and is illegal unless a tax is payed to the ATF.

They don’t make the news, but it happens all the time. Most aren’t out for mass shootings, though the guy that went shooting into the church a while back was stopped by a guy that shot him.

Obviously, you hit the feeble old drunk because you believed it was justified.

Nope, he grabbed my daughter by the arm. You or anyone else would receive the same treatment, or worse. I was the old and feeble one, he was just drinking at the bar, and I assumed he was drunk. Being the nice guy that I am, I didn't even have my daughter press charges.

You perceived it as a "threat". If I were the father of a daughter and a stranger grasp her arm, I might take it as a threat. I would have to be in your shoes and see what you saw. I would evaluate his intent as best I could before I would strike or shoot someone. Let's remember, you are the same guy that was prepared to shoot a security guard because she was simply standing on the corner watching cars drive by. Your motive, as I remember, was you felt "uncomfortable".

I am only looking as an outsider obviously but with all the people in the US that have a licence for CC, how come we don't hear of more incidents where these horrific events are snuffed out by a responsible citizen before much damage is done?

Because it never happens.

Yep. I will not say "never" but I sure think your chances of being A John Wayne Hero are about as good as getting hit by a meteor.

Yep..and some breed in the wild as ferals, increasing the feral pack, but most started off as someone's domestic companion.

Believe it or not, it's worse in some cities than in the countryside.


The dog dumping is a real problem here in the countryside. I have often wondered which is worse for these people to do: drive to the country and drop off your dogs or cats, or take them out and euthanize them?(The shelters around here are overflowing btw).

As far as the original question. I have a CC permit. Used to keep a .40 cal Beretta in the truck. Took it out a year ago. Now I only take a small 9mm Sig with me when I got to Indy(which is as rarely as humanly possible). One of daughters goes to a comm college in Gary. I insisted she get a CC permit and spent a good deal of time ensuring she was comfortable, competent and proficient handling the gun before moving up north.


I have a female heeler jack russell cross I think Someone dumped her and she was already spayed. Best companion I have had.
Does her best to keep the cows off of me when feeding. She rides shotgun. She will not ride in the back of the truck. She found me in 2014

Your ignorance is showing. It never happens because good guy with guns stop it. Plenty of evidence of that .

The nuts that open carry scare me, I don’t want them anywhere near me.
Two things come to mind they are the first target or going to try and play Lone Ranger.
If a criminal comes in with any type long gun you’re already out gunned your only hope is element of surprise IMO.

I'm surprised to hear you were able to settle a feral dog so easily. You must be a dog whisperer like that Ceaser Milan guy on Animal Planet.
