    Stupid question, but why are you not walking due to ChicomFluV19? Assuming you like to walk and were doing so before there is very little reason to not do so. Of all places to be “safer” from Covid outdoors and not near people is up there.

    We still “take a walk” every morning for exercise as we have been. We just do not go to the mall or near by cities for shopping or dining like we used to before the pandemic. So, we rarely “walk on the street” but mostly “from parking to the building kind of walk” now.

    Exactly! Maybe the only difference is that people need to wear masks when going outside and making it hard for us to identify people. This current situation really favors the criminals, do you think it so?

    Really, no mask is required doing outside activity. A mask is desired when in a crowded indoor place, like airplane. I wear a mask when reqd indoors. If the govt mandated outdoor masks all day, screw them, they can arrest me. Besides, 98% of people wearing masks do it wrong. All you are doing is collecting virus on the mask. Never touch it, toss it or wash it daily. I get it though, fear is a driving force. Masks wont save us. Washing your hands is more important.
    Oh & ccw daily.:cheers:

    I use to carry only occasionally. Now it's all the time.
    Just this weekend there was a protest that turned violent in downtown Vancouver WA. That's just 12 miles from me.

    Up to now it's just been all in Portlandia.

    In the past three months I've added Crimson laser grips to my two 45s. Bought three 9mm and 8 additional mags for each. Added a second 357 lever gun and picked up ~800 additional rounds of center fire ammo, and some additional .22 Mag ammo.

    Partly because of the violence, and partly in case Kamala, oops, I mean Joe gets elected.

    I already had several guns and a lot of ammo, but saw this as a possible "last chance" to buy some things I wanted if the election went bad.

    Same here. Use to carry a S&W 442. Now it's either a S&W Shield (8+1) OR a MC2c (13+1) plus at least one spare mag. I'm drifting more and more towards the MC2c as it really is almost as easy to carry as the Shield, and I can carry a spare 15 round mag if I wish.

    My LCP is in my pocket when around the house or sometimes I use it when walking the dog.

    I also bought fresh cans of Pepper spray for the entire family.
