Wearing a holster is the economical solution for most of the time , including gardening and working on the car.

But you still need a stainless firearm for taking to the shower.

You know, if folks like myself or Cu4 were to have made similar comments, messers BsB & Xo would be raining all forms of gun-nut verbage down upon the source.  Go figure

About my comment? BSB, probly not, and XO, who cares?

Actually, not that long ago, I referenced, actually stongly stressed, the importance of gun safety, especially as a CCW holder.  Bsb was raking me over the coals as some gun nut, for daring to have one.  I've noticed how he, and Xo, have steered clear from doing that with you.

Nothing like a shotgun in the shower!

They are welcome to rake away. I've been threatened, attacked, stabbed, cut and shot at (and missed, fortunately). I've worked several jobs that put me in contact with people who weren't happy with what I do, and as an armed courier carrying several thousand dollars at a time. When it comes to my personal safety, I don't play around; even less so when it comes to my home and my family.

Yet that would get you branded a gun nut.  I too had a job that required me having to travel to all sorts of areas and neighborhoods that were, shall we say, less than stellar, and was thankful not just to have a weapon with me, but the training to use it and use it safely.  That gets me branded a gun nut.  My guess, is that you're immune from the charge since you're also a rational Bush Basher & Republican Basher, and they don't want to alienate you from their side, on those topics      ;)

Republican basher? LOL, actually I just like to see the truth, all of it. I'm still a  registered Republican, but I don't vote the party any more, I vote the individual and the issues that are important to me. The Republicans, AFAIC, should have stuck to smaller government and lower taxes. Now they push too many issues, as a party, I disagree with.

Why don't I bash XO? He's like an appendix. Bash the Democrats? Enough voices doing that in here already. And BSB, we've been around long enough and been through enough, I think we respect each other.

That's cool.  Just noting that's why you're getting a pass on the CCW and defensive use with firearms, that would have Bsb lavashing all sorts of gun-nut ridicule for exactly the same position

Well since I drove a cab at night in Boston without carrying a gun and since I carried bearer bonds worth several million $ around Boston without a gun I'd say you're both gun-nuts.

I would admit that this qualifies you as a nut authority.

I was insured by the New York Stock Exchange to carry Bearer Bonds for Alex Brown Inc. It was a high paying job and I enjoyed it. Not once did I carry a gun and not once was I approached or threatened in any way.  Your take is just another example of how far off you are most of the time.

actually, your response is just another example of how freedom of choice, and use of firearms for defensive purposes is so far off, most of the time.  Here's a hint, you have every right to chose not to carry or even use one.  Good for you.  Now try recognozing that this country, in particular the Constitution provides the same right for others to chose to.  You may think you're smarter and just know better, but that doesn't defacto make you so

I worked as a locksmith, often repossessing cars and gaining access to homes and apartments to evict people. Those folks don't tend to tip you and thank you for the ride. Many nights I worked all night and wasn't able to get home to drop off the cash I had collected, and twice I was called out in the wee hours by people who intended to rob me. They weren't successful either time. I also carried cash deposits from a local chain of convenience stores to the bank, with some stores in pretty rough neighborhoods. Rough enough that the owners hired me rather than expose their store managers to the risk of being robbed.

It's your choice whether to own firearms or not, or to carry them. I prefer not to be a victim.

It is one thing to have a job carrying cash about, and quite another to have a gun available to grab on a moment's notice at home, unless one lives in a very dangerous area threatened by thieves who know you have a lot of stuff worth stealing.

I hardly think that being armed while working for Brinks or Garda makes someone a "gun nut".

Owning fifteen firearms is a completely different thing.

Fifteen? I wish. There are several I would love to have.
