    Hero complex?
    Scared?
    Want to protect something or someone and need a gun to do it?


    Satan calls your firearms TOYs. You can't kill a soul with a gun no matter how hard you try.

    You want to protect something then protect your soul from the darkness.

    You pull that gun over something GOD doesn't classify as requiring death then it is just murder and that is on your head.

    So why do you carry?

    I read on the Internet that a .45 ACP will steal your soul.

    It could be a 45 APC (Armored personnel carrier) and still no dice at injuring a soul.

    I carry because in my past life as a first responder, have seen way too many victims of scum and declared I would never become one or allow anyone else to under my watch, unless a perp gets the drop on me, I'm not worried about em outshooting me, most never been to a range. Carry everywhere all the time, even in your own yard, perps can be anywhere so situational awareness is as important as a gun.

    Does 'just in case' count?

    I hope I never have to use a fire extinguisher either, but I'd rather have it and not need it....

    I have a beautiful wife and a beautiful daughter and a young son.

    I walk a lot, sometimes in the woods.

    I have, so far, been able to disarm (once literally) situations wherein I was responsible for the safety and well being of others by calm demeanor and prayerful grace of God. But I carry just in case the demons in the other party overwhelm their physical and / or mental capabilities.

    I am not sinless, but I endeavor to be useful to The Lord. The old adage is: I know where I’m going when I die, but I’m in no hurry to get there. Actually, I’d love to be with Jesus as soon as possible, but I’m leaving the timing up to Him.

    That waxes philosophic.

    Bottom Line: The Lord has others in my sphere of influence. I protect them as best I can.
