Re: Packing Heat
I don't like to carry, but I have had a carry permit on and off since 79. I've only pulled it once since I've been carrying.
I've been looking for the right holster to carry my .45 this summer on the bike, as almost all our travel is in Pa. I would not take it out of State to any that does not honor the permit.
But, I do suggest some self defense information, plenty of which is free on the web.
I recently bought some DVD's on hand to hand defense, cane use, and Kubatons. We ended up buying the Fenix new flashlights from Amazon, which double as an awesome Kubaton, and no one gives you any grief on carrying a flashlight, anywhere. The lights are nothing short of amazing, and much better than the Surefire lights, IMO. These have 6 control settings, and up to 215 lumens. Very powerful and run on 2 AA batteries for $60.
I also carry the Kimber Guardian spray ($40).
Most always I have my NAA .22mag mini revolver. They had a recent You Tube clip of an 80 yr old guy that saved his life with one when two young men assaulted, knifed him in the head and beat him up pretty good.
If I had the money, I would be carrying a S&W .38 J frame.
My first priority is to avoid all trouble, period.
