Handguns are for laying down suppressive fire so you can get back to the truck and take care of bidness. ;-)

I have been threatened, shot at, beat up and left for dead. No more. Im glad there are places that are safe but here is not one of them. Drugs are the danger here now.


I have a deep appreciation for your environment!

The drug folks here are not that much of a threat. 99.6 % are folks who are harmless even when on drugs which is most of the time. Most are very insecure and just want something to escape their miserable lives!

It is that .4 % that are absolutely monsters. All you got to do to prove it - watch Lexington news.

The one thing I know is that if I lived in an area as bad as described by some here, I would sell out and move very far away.

Drugs are horrific here 9 out of 10 are just thieves.
It is the one that is bat shyt crazy and is dangerous when needing a fix.
Watch the Beaumont news any night for who got shot for 20 bucks.

I feel I'd be a dang fool not to be armed, I'll leave that to you guys.
CB, I hate snakes and kill every poisonous one I see. A bush ax or machete is my tool of choice, but I don't have one with me all the time.

I have never blamed anyone besides myself for my trials and tribulations. I've been blessed beyond belief and for some unknown reason luck has been very kind to me. My wife is definitely my better half and for some reason has always been able to calm me. Her faith and her faith in me has provided me with a future few can hope for.

I want to carry while on my 4wheeler. I had a gun rack on front, but the gun gets dirty and dusty there... What I want is a handgun riveted to the 4wheeler that my thigh will hide and protect from dust and dirt, yet be easy to grab if I need it quick. I ran up on some guys hog hunting, yet were trespassing...It was too late for me to turn around, my first defense, but I sped up to get around them. One of them flagged me down, so, I stopped once I past them so that I was moving away from them. One of them walked towards me...Every step I moved to keep a good distance. He wanted to know if I knew who owned the land they just walked off of..I said yes and left......lol...Gun would not have helped me if they had decided they needed a 4wheeler, they were all armed...Keeping my distance is my best defense...So sometimes I wonder if having a gun would help.. It would be more for shooting critters if I need to shoot a critter...

Linda, taking your example - pulling a gun would probably have gotten you killed. Remember, a person who will harm you is not going to play fair.
