You don’t get to pick the day you need your gun. Someone else will pick that day and they will only tell you at the last minute.
Tom Givens, of Rangemaster (a premier firearms training facility in Tennessee), made this interesting comment that was picked up on Facebook a month or so ago. Think about the truth of this statement. If I knew I was going to need my gun that day, I’d do everything I could to avoid that situation. Unfortunately, our life-threatening encounters tend to come when we least expect them.
Think about that for a moment as you decide whether or not to carry your gun today because it may be a hassle or a little inconvenient. And then carry it! Remember, you probably won’t get to pick the moment.
