I believe it's ludicrous to say a pistol is only necessary in certain situations and with certain people.

If someone were to point out the specific situations and persons, that will threaten my life, I would certainly carry in those situations. However, no one being gifted, and knowing by whom and when, your life may end, means you have to simply be prepared always.

I carry at family events. Not because family is a problem, but because I cannot predict who else may decide to join us. My family has my back, and I trust them to be carrying also. We care for each other.

It has already been stated that criminals are taking advantage of a situation and a perceived weakness in an individual or situation. I consider situations where it doesn't seem threatening, to be ideal places for bad to happen.

Predators don't want a fair fight; they want you incapacitated either by pre-occupation or by force. I don't give them the chance. When you have the least reason to worry; worry, and be vigilant.

If you are going to "die", go on your terms not some thugs.
