    Years ago we contracted with HUD , many of the homes were in Chicago. As big as I am, I got nervous going into those neighborhoods. Four would do the route, and all four went packing heat. Some of the areas were squaller, crack vials all over the place, dope pedler squatters entrenched in some of the homes. We fulfilled the contract, but neverrrrr again will deal with HUD lol.

    How about it, any of you ever have to pack?

    Yeah,

    I carry a Glock-29 10MM with Meprolight night sights and LaserMax laser sight in a Galco FED paddle holster. I carry every where I go, every day.

    Also I commissioned a special round from Cor-Bon. I have them load their 180 grain hunting 10MM with the JHP instead of the BCSP. It produces over 696 ft. lb. of energy.

    in Mississippi.your car is considered an extension of your home.you can carry a concealed weapon,loaded,in your vehicle.
    for 100.00 you can apply for a concealed carry permit.looks like a MS.drivers license.

    Yes, I don't leave home with out one, normally I carry a 9mm and I have a 12 gauge pump in the truck, I had a bracket made for the shotgun under the seat. I've done H.U.D. units in the past and I no longer take any chances.
