A. I'm not a girl
B. I got into a street fight after a purse snatching where a (girl) friend of mine's purse spilled all over the road. 3 bad guys, girl, me. If the contents of that spilled purse had included a gun, we would have had 4 hands and they, 6.
I'm not a fan of CCW unless the firearm is actually on your person.
Just saying. Do what is best for you.
I'm right about the metric system 3/4 of the time.
