Question: it's standard practice to treat every gun as if it were loaded, to never point it at anything you aren't prepared to destroy.
Would any of you place your hand in front of the barrel? How about pointing a loaded handgun at your stomach, chest, face...?
heck no! That would be nuts and unsafe!
Yet, you carry your gun pointed directly at your d*ck, or lower abdomen when you sit down?
Interesting how that thought process works. So for those who are comfortable with that, would you then be comfortable pointing the same gun you carry appendix style AT your face, or chest, or stomach? After all, what's the difference?
