    Sorry for your troubles. Getting your CCW will be a great thing. I carry 24/7. Killing someone over pocket change doesn't seem right, but if they are willing to risk their life for my pocket change, who am I to disappoint them. Robbery is a violent act that can go either way. You never know what is behind that door. I am not willing to take a chance on some thugs generosity to LET me live.

    Glad you're okay. I carry absolutely everywhere I can. Your story definitely reinforces this practice!

    I've had my permit since mid-June and carried everyday. I'd never really said anything about carrying, assuming she knew I did since I had my permit. Last week, we were giving our son a bath. I had put my gun away but still had the holster on my belt. While leaning over the side of the tub, my shirt came up a little and she says something like, "That looks like a gun holster." I proceeded to tell her it was. She had numerous questions about where/why I carry. At first, I think she thought I was being a little paranoid but after reminding her of all the fairly recent news stories of shootings at random places, she agreed that it's nice to at least be prepared. I think she's even somewhat interested in going to the range with me sometime.

    Wow, glad to hear you're alright. I live in Shepherdsville and head to Louisville every day for work, various areas. My friend just got her CC permit, I'll let her know what happened to you.

    Sorry if this is a bit too soon to ask, but do you feel there was any time to draw and present a CCW in your situation? Were there any warning signs?

    Yes when the pizza delievery driver stepped out of the back door to get ready to make a delivery the bandit put the gun down by his side. He still had the finger on trigger.
    If a had a CCW I would have blowed his brains across the back of the building.
    Of course that's hind sight. I would have had to deal with some lady sueing me "You kilt my baby he was a good boy, that was just a bb gun or it wasn't loaded."
    It probley was easier just to give him the money and getting away.
    Of course I now have a different view now........

    Congrats on making it out... could have been worse. I'm a PO in Bullitt Co and my girlfriend lives in Lex... she took the class with me when I took it before I got this job and she carries some, but not all the time. I need to get her more comfortable. You never know when it will happen to you, but it seems more and more likely that is WILL happen.

    I also live in Shepherdsville.

    That's horrible, I'm glad your OK. Yes you should have a CCDW for sure. Did LMPD catch the guy? Yes it would have made the news that you splattered some low life and that you were being sued for it. Take care and be careful. May I recommend open carry in the mean time. On the bright side it really cuts down on the hey buddy can you spare some change. Stay safe!

    Castle Doctrine in Kentucky. If the shoot was proper, they can't sue.

    Got a report number or any word on suspects? PM me, as IIRC, you're right around the corner from where I live. I try and keep up with what's going on around the neighborhood....

    BTW, if you didn't know it - I work in LE here locally, and the wife is an LMPD officer. One of the posters in this thread has a brother on LMPD with robbery, although this sounds like a division case. Oddly enough, I know the division dicks (detectives) out here. :cool:

    You get to know people after having worked at the jail for almost ten years, and when you're married to a street officer who's been on for nine herself. Plus, some of the guys/girls that ride out here at night are folks who left the jail for the streets.

    Without putting too much out there online, I live maybe two miles from where you got robbed. IIRC, you're right by the high school, correct? I'm right down the road a bit; there's a good chance you've passed by my house once or twice, since it's on a main road. Like I said, I try and keep up on the nasty stuff that goes on in the neighborhood; I don't want this area going downhill the way Okolona has, so I try and keep the beat guys informed of any nonsense when I hear about it. There's been an influx of idiots lately around here, too. That home invasion down the road the other day, for instance..Let's just say that it was a targeted home, and not a random event.

    The apartments on Hurstborne/Bardstown (both sides) aren't exactly the nicest, and there's a lot of trouble that comes from there. You've also got some teens/young adults that cause problems, like car break-in's and some burglaries from time to time. Most of it settled down after that kid got shot down the street (the officer who shot him was in my wife's class; I know him fairly well), but his friends still like to cause trouble.

    Anyway, if you've got any further on it, I'd be interested to know. Also, if you haven't gotten a copy of the report, and need one, just give me the number. I can get you a copy quicker than you going to the station and picking one up. Anything I can do to help, let me know. I prefer our area stay *******-free, ya know?

    As a gun smith/gun dealer I try to keep up with all the laws but this one (not The Castle Doctrine) just that part of it.

    I work another job and am busy with that and my wife requires a large part of my time and she is much prettier to look at ( I know I know):supergrin:
    so the CDWL wasn't a high piority.

    Look at the buisness end of a High Point and that changes your mind quick.
