    Not so much a question as a lead-in to me posting some answers that I shamelessly ripped off another forum.

    Things to say when a person notices your firearm and asks

    "Why are you carrying a gun":

    "Because I can't throw a rock at over 1200 fps."
    "Shhh.. I'm stalking my ex-wife."
    "Because I can't carry a policeman."
    "Because when seconds count, the police are just minutes away"
    "Someday you might understand...I hope you live through it."
    "because they're worth it" While nodding to your family.
    "Because yelling help never stopped anyone"
    "Because cops respond to "free doughnut" faster then "help" or 911"

    I heard a guy reply with what I thought was the best one in a while. " Because thats the safest place for it". The person questioning got that puzzled look and actually asked him to explain. He said well it can't get into a bag guys hands cause it's here. My kids or my kids friends cant' get it cause it's here. and I don't have to worry about someone doing me harm because it's here. Therefore it's the safest place I know of to keep it.
    The idiot turned kinda red and turned around and left.
    Take care Be safe Poacher.

    I do not intend to use my gun to kill, but I do intend to use my gun.

    The simple answer I give people is this .

    The world does , always has had and always will have sick sadistic people in it who "get Off" on hurting and or killing people just for the fun of it .

    Then there are those who think I owe them something because of the color of my skin , my heritage or Nation I was born and think they have the right to extract payment by inflicting pain and suffering on me or my family .

    I'll be damned if I am going to cower down and beg the scum mentioned above to be left alone to live my life in peace .

    My life is precious to me if yours is not to you by all means feel free to be a victim of the animals that roam the streets but don't expect me to help you out if you're unwilling to help yourself .

    All the really cool guys in the movies carry guns and get the babes. My mother stopped breast feeding me as punishment for wetting the bed and I have a tiny penis. My gun makes me feel like a real man and I'll show them one day![lolol][gone]

    Love the "because I can" answer. But the best is the "safest place" hands down. I will use it. [coffee2]

    I agree the "Safest Place" is a very good one

    1 out of 2 criminals prefer unarmed victims -- the other 1 couldn't read the survey.

    35.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot :^)
