I'm still here.

Wow, it has been two months since I last posted. Not a whole lot to report here so I thought I'd share a link to a local story.

People ask me why I carry a concealed handgun. This is why

I'm not trying to change your mind on carrying - I support the concept and carry as well.

But in a situation like this, unless your girlfriend also carries and can get off a shot or two instead of freaking out, the presence of a handgun would be meaningless. 3 on 1 and you are dead on the ground before you can even react.

I need more details (not directing this at you) in oder to decide if a lack of situational awareness was a factor.

Glad to see the general tenor of commentors in your local fishwrapper is on a par with just about everywhere else.

stay safe.

OH! PS - thanks for coming back. I was on the verge of deleting you, but held off in hopes of reading more of what I had gotten in the past.

Well I'm glad that I was able to post in time to keep you from deleting me.

I agree, when attacked by multiple assailants the likelihood of successfully defending yourself drops significantly. I should have been a bit clearer- batshit crazy mofo's in general are the reason why I carry.
