    Re: carring protection

    "God gave us the right to carry a gun"? Never heard that one before, but why did he give the Bad guys the same right? I'll have to think about this one.

    Re: carring protection

    In the end the decision isn't yours to make. It's made for you by the threat. Do I want to live or die. Am I willing to do what it takes to survive. Have the mindset to make the decision if it becomes absolutely neccesary but in the end the bad guy makes the decision for you by putting your life in danger. Then ones survival instinct naturally kicks in. Just my 2 cents worth!

    Carring a gun in a park? Do you carry a gun when having a pick nik, or swimming on the beach?
    yes,yes,yes, grocery shopping, raking leaves, just about every where it is legal, because it is legal to do so
    If I had a gun, not sure who I should shoot with it.
    good thing you don't have one, you must depend on 911
    Conceled weapon? Loaded weapon in your car? Seems like you would be out asking for trouble.
    No, protecting your self from trouble, If it is concealed then nobody but you will know you have it
    Do you plan on detecting under a crack house?
    Not under but all around the crack house
    I would think that if your paranoid, best to just have another friend with you.
    then there would be two people carrying guns, not paranoid just safe
    Wouldnt it be easier to just walk away from a ify situation?
    of course if you are able or can, but if you can't? I just don't want to become a victim, but if its OK with you to become a victim one thats fine with me

    All legal and honest citizens should be packing a gun, makes for a more civilized and a much more polite society.

    It boils down to being a CITIZEN, or being a victim, subject, or corpse.

    Citizens have rights, subjects don't. I choose to be a citizen.

    Re: carring protection

    Carrying a firearm is a big decision. I carry pepper spray just because I'm not ready to take on the responsibility of being a gun owner. I do have a silly question. If an officer approaches you, if you have a sharp large digging tool, are you supposed to tell him so he knows or even put on the ground while you speak?

    Re: carring protection

    No. Just keep your hands where they can be seen and be polite.

    If you say: "I have a sharp knife", that can be taken as a statement or a threat.
    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.

    Re: carring protection

    Thank you, I appreciate that. I had a debate with a retired state policeman about the difference between my "garden digger" and what constitutes a "concealed weapon". Never really got a conclusive answer.

    Re: carring protection

    I believe carrying a weapon is a personal choice that should not be taken lightly. I have a concealed carry permit and so far my weapon has remained concealed 100% of the time. I hope it stays that way. Here is what I carry.

    Re: carring protection

    Hi Folks; For me, I'm 6'2" and 240lbs. with a "lot" of training in MMA and 6 years "in" the Ring. Try it. It's fun. Especially when you see scum crumbling before your very eyes. I like things to be personal that way. !! Just in case I could use my 9mm Blue Steel Smithy Semi Auto if I need to. I've only had 3 incidents in 39 years of detecting and 3 while not detecting. They "all" ended badly for the scum. The handcuffs provided by our Finest also worked very well and yes I can, will and definitely DO Prosecute the scum to the fullest "EVERY" time. I suggest you guys do the same.If you don't then the scum "will" nail someone else. Someone has to take a Stand sometime. As an American I will and am glad to Stand up against these scum every time and yes I am just as ruthless when it comes to doing so. My Rule of Thumb is very simple so even they can understand it. I'm a nice guy. I'll help anyone I can. BUUUUT , my Rule is that "if your nice to me, I'm nice to you. If you mess with me I'll "completely" destroy you and if I have to I'll track you from here from here to Pluto to get you then you can bet I "WILL". Simple isn't it. !!! Anyways, enough said. PEACE:RONB

    Carry your digger out in the open. Not concealed or weaponly.

    You hit the nail right on the head!. If im sitting on my pourch in the evening,my glocks close, If i go to the store my glocks close, If we good people don't carry...Bad guy's will be the only one with them, I will not be the top six o'clock story of someone being killed for the detector so the crackhead could get another hit! Ya might see me on there as the old fart who killed the crackhead instead of being robbed! jmo

    Re: carring protection

    Also in the state of Georgia. I carry a K-bar fighting knife with a Tanto blade, a gift from my nephew on his return from Afganistan, I asked a city cop the law. He said anything over3.5 inches is considered a concelled weapon,But with my knife in a sheath tied down it was in the open and lawfull, it too has the habit of telling people to be nice,

    This is my digging tool, in nice yards
