Arizona Fusilier:

Couple of states west, Northeast Alabama to be exact (approximately 6 years ago).

Everytime I've had an "Adventure", as me and my wife call them, its been when I (or we) were minding our own business. People ask me why I carry, I tell them "I know IT CAN HAPPEN TO ME. It already has."

Slightly off topic: When I was in the USAF, we were assembled at an outdoor track (on the bleachers) for an overseas briefing. Two individuals were jogging around the track. No one hardly paid them any notice. When they got around to us, they pulled out (blank firing) weapons and opened up on us. The instructor changed his tone very seriously and simply stated "That"s how quick it can happen!"

One of the VERY BEST lessons I learned in the service.
