It is fascinating to me, the length that we will go through to justify doing what we want to do.

Soooo many people insist on carrying a BUG, spare mags or both based on the miniscule chance that this fails or that jams or there's 2 BGs and their hommies show up....

but the possibilities that having consumed alcohol will have a detrimental effect on you in a SD situation, whether it be through impaired reactions, impaired judgement or implications brought up by a potential prosecutor are routinely minimized or explained away.

Spare mags, BUGS, Tazers and pepper spray because, hey, you never know.

I'll let myself have a few though because, hey, what are the odds?

It's nonsensical.
