Sure you might be billy badass but too many punks walk around with guns and knives today to take that chance.

Sound like a bunch of pussies. Some, not all.

I work in Metro Atlanta, in some of THE WORST areas and I don't carry. I try to keep a biscuit close, but I don't keep 1 on my person.

I work in 30318, 30311, 30310, etc. all the time and leave my door unlocked and the roll up door in the back open. I always stay aware, but I'm sure nobody wants these problems.

I'm 6'2", 247 lbs. People know who to mess with and who not to.
Same answer as the rest, he has a gun, you have a fist. he wins. doesnt matter how big you are, doesnt matter if you are trained in the art of dissarming, bullets reach further than your fist.

not to mention, fist fighting is for children who run their lives off of their emotions.

The owner shows you his video, you recognize them as some young guys you passed in the area you're working, and you pull up at their house, block driveway). You already called police, but he wants to know why you at his house. Y'all have words, you're waiting on police and it almost gets physical.

Now I could have easily allowed my ego to get the best of me and got my weapon, but I didn't. I knew he couldn't beat me in a fight, even all 3 of em. And I also knew that nothing they stole from MY BUSINESS(not me) is worth either of our health or safety.

They were all detained once police came and talked to us and we all went back to store and watched the video.

And yes, I had insurance.

.380 through .45 all have the same lethality. 80% one one shot, 90% for two. shot placement determines a bullets effect

a .22 in the heart will kill you faster than a .45 in the lung.

wonder about .50. i want to carry a desert eagle. if i can find one i can afford.

We chuckle at the guys that show up at the range with a .50 DE usually in low rider leg holster then proceed to burn a few hundred in ammo to make a few holes. A good shooter will empty a clip in a tight group before the DE can get sighted back in.

a few hundred hard hitting .50 in one setting?

although i can hit a red dot from draw at 20' with 9mm. not impressive, but enough to save a life.
