When they make it in 9mm I'll get excited.
I never understood those who think there are certain 'areas' you need a firearm in & yet two people have already said just that in this thread. You think a church is safe? What about an elementary school? Gym?
I said it was fairly pointless to have a back up carry unless you have a high risk. I didnt say carring was pointless. To each there own.
If you think you need it, great, then do it. I just think its pointless. If one would run a risk assesment instead of living completely paranoid. Or maybe they want to feel cool by carring a second firearm then more power to them.
Im not really into carring that much shit on me. I have enough shit to carry around as is, keys wallet, whatever. For my own risk assesment i dont need a backup except while im in the sandbox, and thats really just to be able to protect my patients. Maybe your risk assesment dictates that you should. It's your right to do so.
