    Yes. Damned useless otherwise.

    Except at gun shows where they won't let me.

    yes practicing common sense is a consideration in my life, weird huh LMAO

    ive also made sure my daughter and i know first aid and CPR, we also have action plans for house emergencies and if she turns up in trouble/missing.

    also just for further entertainment, whats "macho" about only having one arm? doesnt sound to macho to me lol

    I mean i doubt any of this ever happens but say a dog is biting the other one or im grabbed from behind or injured some how? what good would my gun be then?

    guess the "smarter" thing to do would be to not use common sense, you know like when people have heart pills in their glove box 300 yards away in their car, or mace with a child proof lid on it, buried in a purse LOL

    you fail

    Plus if you have small children you might be carrying one when you need to shoot. I attended what was billed as the most realistic "Practical match" held in the Midwest about 18 years ago and one of the courses involved carrying one of those large stuffed animals (the course designer's daughter had won it at some circus) in one arm to simulate having to carry a small child out o a home being besieged by a bunch of doper-bikers.

    I won the stage because the rules allowed you to carry two guns (I had my IPSC Limited para Ord as the main gun and a glock 21 as a backup) and most guys lost points "dropping" the kid trying to reload. I merely holstered the Para when it was close to dry and pulled the Glock which of course had no manual safeties etc)

    nice

    i do admit it does make me a little paranoid it not having a manual safety but the alternative is POSSIBLE rendering it useless so i just got over it

    I still need a smaller gun though, its big for concealed all the time, probably just gonna go with the same gun just compact version

    I have the luxury of owning lots of carry guns and the further luxury of being able to shoot 2-4 times a week including weekly "Steel matches" and a glock match here and there where I shoot (among other things) one of the small G 26. SO I can transition between my SW revolver (pure double action), my SIG 380 (Pure single action cocked and locked), Smith and wesson semis (safe action as they call it but my carry pieces -a SHIELD and a MP Compact both have the manual safeties on them) and a SW Bodyguard (the safety is so small I don't use it but the trigger is LONG and heavy like a revolver)

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Sorry, there's a bit of recent history between us. I'll tone it down.

    I tell students that if they cannot practice constantly to stick with one gun so they don't have to think about the operation in a crisis. That's why I am a big fan of J frame revolvers. not much to go wrong and while most people can shoot say a compact auto (like a Glock 19) more accurately, I find the J frame revolvers far more reliable and more accurate than the micro autos (like the little Kahrs, the Kimber SOLOs or the Ruger LCPs)

    No, I don't fail. I live somewhere else. I don't need to be always armed and ready to repel boarders. Or robbers or burglars.
