Concealed Carry for Normal People

Like you and me. I saw this over at the snub nose files and I think that it's real important to listen to. There are many things that we may tend to forget when we put on our pistols and go about our lives. This podcast is a great reminder of some things we need to think about. If you happen to be considering your first concealed carry pistol, there is some really good advice here. If you carry almost everywhere you go like I do, it serves as a great reminder that those of us who carry are held to a higher standard of conduct in public. Heinlein's assertion that an armed society is a polite society applies with equal force to those of us who choose to go armed.

Think carefully about how you interact with the world around you. Think about how you treat people and talk to them. The banners are always screaming about blood in the streets, the mature and responsible way in which you act every day keeps this to just so much idle crap. Think about how you act and help keep it just so much idle crap and hysteria.
