I often have people look at me funny when I tell them other than work, where carry is prohibited, I am ALWAYS carrying. Seriously, I visit friends from work and the first few times they see me outside of work and they’re surprised because I wasn’t joking.
Often the question is posed by some that I live in rural Washington so when is someone going to really attack me. The thing is, a gun is a tool. Works on two and four legged varmints just the same. Four legged varmints out here can be just as deadly as the two legged. I saw a wonderful reminder today.
As of this writing no humans have been killed yet, but if they’re taking down large animals it’s only a matter of time. Carrying a firearm is merely being prepared for the unexpected. Could be an animal or a human, either way I’m going to remain vertical relative to the varmint trying to do me harm.
