I'm considering purchasing a pistol and/or a shotgun, for target practice and home defense. Given the nature of our job, what's your stance on owning firearms?
I have applied (and have been approved) for a California CCW License.
It's no coincedence that govenrments or regions that either ban or severely restrict the ability to carry have higher crime rates. When most everyone carries, no one gets robbed. When you're made to give up your guns, you have rape, muggings, car jackings, and a husband bound and gagged in the living room of their house while the perps violate the wife and daughter.
We need to prepare for the soon to come rapid devaluation of the American dollar. I recommend investing in as much gold, ammo, and whiskey you can get your hands on. Also, keep a large stock of non perishables, as much as you can, and then rotate your stock as you use supplies. That case of powdered milk or beans may cost five times as much next year. Also, go out and buy a house real quick, w/ a fixed rate mortgage. Real estate is the best hedge against inflation. A generator for your home, and one of those hand crank cell phone chargers would be good to have items as well.
I'm only half kidding with the above.
i keep my glock 22 in a holster shirt at all times. Ive been on shooting scenes where we begin to treat a victim and receive fire from opposing gang members trying to finish the pt off. i applied for my CC next day
