Be careful out there, especially if you live anywhere near the third-world country known as South Florida.

And what third world country did they "emigrate from? Kimothy as a first name for 2 of the 3? Interesting question though. How many other LCO's carry legally?

I carry legally. I always have my XD45 compact on me and there is usually an AK in the truck. I have several Ak-47's and they are my long gun of choice.

I have actually had a customer tell me that my gun was showing while I was working. I use an inside wasteband holster and my shirt had rode up while I was spreading some mulch. That paticular customer is one that I get along with pretty well. She knows I'm a bit of a redneck, so things like that don't shock her.

How does an enclosed trailer prevent you from being robbed at gunpoint? Those SOB's could have locked the guy in his own trailer and nobody would have known until the guy had cooked.

I thought I was the only who had the issue with my shirt riding up and the gun showing. Glad I'm not alone, Oh well maybe it showing every now and then will help deter theives and nonpaying customers.
