    this is why we carry. I am a barber in a midd sized town in the south. We have our shop in the better part of town. Tterefore, most of the people and clients that we deal with are upper middle class. So why should I need a gun at work. the standard answer is "you never know who might walk through the door next." Well Friday a customer of mine asked me to cut the hair of a homless guy he Knew who was back in the US after 5 yrs. in Bancock, Thialand. The guy stank of liquer as he stumbled into the shop. He was not happy about geting a haircut. HE cursed and swayed and got out of the chair to look at himself in the mirror several times. That did not bother me. It was when he suddenly swung violently in the air at an invisible opponent and said I'm fast ain't I. that worried me because he had already said he did not want his hair cut and now he was acting crazy. My first thought was were is my gun if this guy flips on me. Guess what?!! I had left it in its case in my filling cabinet. :banghead: :banghead: That is not where it needed to be!! thankfully his violence was reserved for his invisible friend and I got paid and they left.

    Here is just one more note in my list of resons to carry on your person not just in your room.

    Recently in our area an older lady had her purse snatched. the contents of which were a cell phone, $3000.00, and a pistol!!!!! tha t pistol not only did her no good in her purce it could have gotten her killed.:banghead: :banghead:

    Maybe worse, it now may very well get someone else killed!

    Stay safe.

    It should be "Bangkok", but I don't mind since I'm from further south. :D

    True..things could have turned nasty. It seems the time I need my handgun the worse are the times when I'm not carrying as well. Go figure.

    Your story about the elderly lady strikes me as a bit strange. That's a lot of money to tote around in a purse. Since she was also carrying a cell phone, she's not one of those who shy away from modern technology. I've seen folks just about tote aroud their life savings because of a distrust of modern financial institutions, but she doesn't fit that mold.

    Good Shooting

    All I can say is .. a gun not on the person - is no gun at all!!

    Oakseed ..... whatever rig you need to carry on the job ... find it and use it. You obviously have the ''expect the unexpected'' approach but ... Murphy will happily demonstrate that the time you are not packing - is the one time you should have been. Reason why I carry all waking hours, even at home.

    Luckily you did not need but .... you never know! I hope your policy will change to full time carry. That way - you probably ensure that you will in fact (and hopefully) never, ever need it.:)

    Maybe she was carrying the cash to a private collector with an Uzi for sale.

    Confucious say: "Man who walk through turnstyle sideways, going to Bancock." Now, Bangkok is an entirely different place. That reminds me of a Rush song.

    Oakseed, I'm glad your customed didn't trip out on you. Are you gonna carry full time now?

    $3000, a cell phone, and a pistol?

    Obviously the old lady was a dealer. Had she been younger and male, she woulda had some 'splainin' to do.
