    Carry Your Weapon In Restaurants?

    Another example of why you always need to have your gun handy when you least expect to need it.

    "when you least expect to need it."...........thats the operative part of this story.....other than war, is there ever a time to expect it?? My theory is to expect and remain vigilant at all times.....need to practice "situational awareness" 24/7 without being paranoid.

    If I leave my yard, I'm carrying.

    At home, I carry a knife until I go to bed, and there are several guns staged throughout the house.

    Two things I found funny was (1) Burger King is not a restaurant lol (2) The guy that fired upon the thieves was a Firearms Instructor...and No one was hurt...lol

    Like Rick said, if I leave my house, there is a weapon on my person. Around my house there are weapons within reach in key areas.
    Sights ! We Don't Need No Stinking Sights !!

    Yes! Armed 24/7; that's right even when sleeping, it is right next to me on the nightstand. Yard work, it is there on my side. The only place I do not have it is in the Doctor's office, hospitals, government buildings; everywhere else, I have it on me and the wife has one in her purse. We are always watching the behavior of others around us, as much as we can. We hope we never have to resort to using them, but, can and will if forced to do so.

    I wear mine to the DR's. offices, too.

    The only place I usually don't carry is into the PO, and I've been known to "forget" to remove it there on occasion.

    I know; as "going postal" has always referred to the PO workers, not their patrons!
