    When all is said and done, it is better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.

    My car is insured. I would spend more in legal fees defending a shooting than a new car would cost me.

    And then there's our location - remote 20 acres.

    Have you heard the expression "SSS"?

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    In Florida it does extend to your car plus we have "stand your ground" law too. Under Florida law your car is the same as your home and the same castle law applies, that was why the police informed me I was justified when I pulled my firearm and in fact it was legal to have fired my weapon since the assault was taking place in my car.

    Also in Florida it is legal to fire a warning shot or brandish the firearm if your in fear of imminent peril.

    Uh-oh.

    You know how car insurance is REQUIRED in most states?

    That's how come I drive a beater.

    No thanks on that self defense insurance. They will put your name on a list as a firearm owner. No freaking thanks.

    If you have ever bought a firearm that ran a back ground check your on a list. I have it for the lawyer fees and bail money.

I never wear anything that suggests "tactical"...you know, 5.11 pants, Blackhawk or Wilderness instructor belts, etc. And I don't wear anything that says I'm pro-this or anti-that. The way I approach a possible situation with an active shooter of some type is that I don't want to make myself more of a target in any way, shape or form...I just want to blend in and appear to be a nobody until it's time to act if I'm forced to. And wearing suggestive clothing only puts me in the cross-hairs that much quicker in my opinion. Especially if the shooter decides to case the area (even for as little at 30 seconds) before acting. I know if I were playing the role of the bad guy, the first targets would be my tiny-brain instinctive ones (the larger adult males nearest to me) and then next would be those targets that indicate that they may be a threat in some other way, i.e. possibly armed.

    To play devil's advocate, I suppose wearing something that suggests you may be carrying may give a bad guy a second thought before approaching you in a mugging or car-jacking situation...but I prefer to rely on my situational self-awareness of what's going on around me. I try and maintain Cooper's Condition Yellow from the moment I leave the house in the morning to the moment I return that afternoon. It's really not that hard to do after years of practice. Google Jeff Cooper's Color Code if you're interested...

    So, when I'm out dressed casually, I'm just another guy with Bermuda type shorts, comfortable shoes and a nicely pressed, but un-tucked shirt. Not trying to start an argument, just stating my approach.
    No argument taken. I am always armed and I wear 2nd amendment and political shirts every day. I took 8 years of taekwando and one of the things they always stressed was being aware of your surroundings, I am always aware of mine.

    An acquaintance has had to escort home intruders out of his home at gunpoint twice in the last year. Luckily no shots fired.
    These types of people do not magically honor some invisible boundary around your house. They are driving/walking around searching for easy money, with little respect for others lives. Many times they are just out of their minds.

    My life is just as valuable to me on my way to the grocery store as it is in my home.
    All treasures found with permission on private property or on active mining claims.

    What kind of scope was on that Weatherby?

    I got a friend who has a Browning in 7mm magnum. He kills a lot of venison with that gun. He uses a low magnification Leopold scope.
