Even after all of my evangelizing about carrying a weapon for protection, people still ask my why. Many people have decent arguments against it. And while they are not “decent” enough to make me stop carrying, they are valid arguments. The most dominant of which, mostly applies to people who are untrained. Very simply, weapons retention. And in a lot of cases I agree.
How much do you train? You train to draw your weapon. You train to shoot your weapon. Do you train to RETAIN your weapon? Ground fighting? You should if you don’t. But I digress.
Why do I carry? I will simply offer this screen shot from WRDW. A local channel here in the Disgusta, Georgia area. Just look at the four headlines just from today at 7:20PM. “Nuff said.”
