Well bathroom is completely gutted! Sad to see such a nice bathroom in shambles but oh well, it's giving me an excuse to put it back even better! LOL V1.1 bathroom remodel will take affect!

Also got my actuator installed on the truck. I'll get it wired up tomorrow night probably and then my light bar will raise and lower with the flick of the switch. Completely useless honestly but kinda baller and something to get the wow factor from random people. LOL

I don't really bring my gun that often. I do on road trips but usually not on day trips unless I intend to go shooting. I'm just not the packin heat 24/7 type of person I guess. I do have an Az. CCW which is accepted here but I still don't carry. Every once in a while I think maybe I should get in the mode of carrying but then I remember I need to order a couple parts for my holster that my dog decided were tasty and my mind goes elsewhere and I never order the stupid things. LOL

I found it in my garage...it's my Jeep. It's a Big Sky overhead gun rack I got online frome Cabela's. I was a little concerned about drilling through my hard top but it is rock solid with no issues. I don't carry an AR all the time, but I always have a gun with me.

Roobicon....I think you're going to be good friends with a lot of us in this forum! Gun toting crazy whites!(at least me anyways) seriously though, I'm getting to the point where I am seriously considering carrying at work too. People are just too unstable in this town. I know there are unstables everywhere, but they seem more highly concentrated here.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

I don't have a lot of hope for the future. Very few people seem to have any idea or care about what is going on in the world and what is happening to this country. I'm not paranoid, just prepared.

I agree with Powr on carrying at work (and friends with gun toteing crazies). There are WAY too many unstable people living here. I told my wife/office manager that im going to start packing at work when I get my CCW. Lol she told me it is a good idea!

Tomorrow I'll post meeting times and place for a trip to Anniversary Narrows/mine. You have to go through the toll booth in the Lake Mead NRA, so remember your parks pass or a couple of bucks.

I didn't start carrying at work until I had a guy go crazy on me. Now I carry my .38 s&w at work. I really need to get a semi auto that is smaller then my Springfield 1911. Hopefully after the house purchase and jeep is running that will be next on the list.

I am going to totally go out on a limb here and say that about 90% of companies would not let you pack heat. Well it is definitely in your best interest, it is not in theirs. Well you might shoot the meth head/crack addict that is trying to rob you, the headlines will be "Family sues (insert your company name here) for 60 million dollars after rogue employee shoots father of 17 while he was asking for directions to the democratic voting booth. "

I like my Glock 19 for CCW. I use a comp-tac holster setup with it.

http://www.comp-tac.com/product_info.php?products_id=61

But that said, and like I said last night. I don't carry. There's been 2 times in the 3 years I've lived here that I wished I'd had it on me though. Screw it, maybe today I'll get those parts for my holster on order. 1 time was a dude that chased me down in my car and when he finally caught up to me, he thought I was someone else. 2nd time was a guy at the 7/11 on the corner of trop and boulder that was asking for money. Told him I didn't have any and he got pissed. Wasn't an issue but would've been a little more piece of mind having it.

All I can say though is before you draw it out on someone you better be damn well sure it's needed. If you're just in a physical fight and they don't have a weapon you better keep it holstered unless you're on the ground getting your face kicked in. It's absolutely last resort... The other thing is you better make sure before you draw it that there wasn't an opportunity to get away, exit, and just flat out avoid the incident cause if you don't and you pull the trigger you're screwed. "I feared for my life" is not a slam dunk argument. If you feared for your life and could've ran, but instead pulled the trigger you're going to pay a price for that decision.

You're right about that. Always carry a rusty old knife or a hi point in a plastic bag with the serial scratched off just in case your assailant needs to be armed. The knife is just as effective and much less trouble.
