This new acquaintance then proudly told me that he loved guns, and always carried at least two,”just in case”. I remarked about the “at least two” statement, and he then showed he the three guns he had on him that moment. He had a Glock 19 on his belt, an LCP in a pocket holster, and a snubbie on his ankle, and added he carried an extra mag for each of the semi’s. I laughed and said I’m amazed that his pants stay up. I’ll admit I felt almost unarmed with just my LC9s in my pocket, almost.
Made me wonder.

If you leave your wife in the car, truck, RV, what ever while you run into the truck stop for a necessary restroom visit, and get held up, the one gun you have is with you, and you are the least threatened of anyone on your trip.
Just some thoughts. When I totaled my truck last year on a long dark highway, the sheriffs officer that came out to help, was certainly surprised that I had three guns, but waiting for hours for a tow truck, we had plenty to talk about. He was sure he needed a Charter Arms Bulldog in 44 Special like I had.

“If violent crime is to be curbed, it is only the intended victim who can do it. The felon does not fear the police, and he fears neither judge nor jury. Therefore what he must be taught to fear is his victim.”
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
A formidable revolver or pistol on my waist, and instead of a reload, I carry a mouse pistol in my shirt pocket.
And a third in my vehicle when I take a road trip. Could be a big revolver or a small rifle. Depending on if I'm headed either urban or rural dictates the selection. During hunting season it could be a fourth, or more.

When traveling or in a situation where assistance is likely to be unavailable, I almost always have a long gun available in addition to a handgun.

When you have three out of the last four threads,
are you running out of things to talk about?
