  •  You boast about being armed? (0+ / 0-)

    That is interesting. And although I hate to say it, it kind of proves my point. You need the attention of seeming to be a dangerous man, so you not only arm yourself, you TELL everyone you are armed.

    I dont even boast about being unarmed. I just let it be. Wish my gun-bearing friends could learn about humility and walking quietly in the world.

    •  Actually no, I didn't tell anyone I was armed (0+ / 0-)

      until some time later here on DK when someone brought up something where saying I was armed at NN11 was relevant.

      In everyday life, there are very few people who know I'm armed. I'm semi-anonymous on here so I mention it with no problems. At work, only a bare handful know I carry. Including the CEO (figured that'd be a smart idea). My wife and family know along with some very close friends.

      That's it. I'd much prefer people didn't know I was carrying, which is what I say when people as if I am.

      Yes, I lie. Unless it's a LEO.

      •  That is to your credit then. (0+ / 0-)

        Many gun owners I have known both here and in Alaska cannot WAIT to list every known fact and factiod about the gun(s) they are currently wearing, how they wear them, why they wear them, what they will do with them given a chance and where they will go to do it. WAAAAYYYYYYYY TOOO much Information. (WTMI) The discreet bulge in the chest area or the  groin area is really all it takes unless the aforesaid gun owner wants to be labeled a Putz.
