    Sunscreen, bugspray, and condoms!

    In that order! In my youth I cared a 9mm Ruger, but back then I was young and scared and didn't know how the world worked.

    But, then I wised up and listened to the words of a great man. "We have nothing to fear but fear itself".

    Now I rely on my force of personality and common sense for my personal defense needs.

    My Dad and brother both live in a very safe part of Oregon. Both have concealed carry permits. Why? I have no idea. I think it is a political statement.

It shoots very well like most 380 autos, accepts almost any ammunition, and has a finger operated red laser sight- can also select a flashlight mode. Price is right too.

    Thats for every day. But for dress, and when my pants are too tight I go with Louis Seacamp 32 auto. Its is the smallest mouse gun available that still fires a 32. In the back pocket, you don't even know its there. This is a precision firearm and as such requires premium ammunition like Winchester silver tip 32. And another thing, this is a cult item- they are made in a very small factory and the wait time is likely to be a year- or so. Then expect to pay a premium price. Here 'tis

    Dale you are in the boat building industry in Tennessee. What are you worried about pirates sailing up the Tom-Bigby waterway?

    In the minds of the "concealed carry" types, there are no safe places. It must be sad to live life that way.

    Just another day at work, complete with precautionary elephant rifle. It never fit in my waistband, though.

    It's a little safer where I live now, excepting the occasional klan/nazi rally.

    North Ontario. Lock and load!
    This animated film about the pesky blackfly is based on the song of the same title, written and sung by Canadian folk singer Wade Hemsworth, with back-up vocals by the McGarrigle sisters. It recounts Hemsworth's battles with this quintessential "critter" during a summer of surveying in Northern Ontario.

    Is that for a spot of lunchtime plinking, or protection from killer zombie squirrels?
    I'm thinking the whole carry thing is similar to that "missing limb" feeling that most youngsters get when their facebook feed gets severed for more than five minutes, or they misplace their cell.

    Cool Re: your personal protection

    I am here at God's will.
    All the protection I've needed so far.
    Should I need more, I like the sound of a 12 Gage shotgun.
