No. If I break down, I was already armed.

Echoing the Florida member... I'm already armed, so the question is a bit of a non-starter for me.

In an effort to understand your inquiry...
mrt949, do you normally not carry a firearm on your person... and feel as though it might be a good idea considering the circumstances?
Do you keep a firearm in the car, and are unsure if you should arm yourself in the event that you do break down?
Is your vehicle in such a state that a break down is likely?

Ditto, already armed.

Hmmm, do I smell a "how do you carry in your vehicle" question coming on here?

A carry gun should be kept securely on your person ALL OF THE TIME. You may get separated from your vehicle. Heck, if you stop to help someone else broke down on the road at night you really need be very observant and very careful AND armed if you step out of your vehicle.

I work from home so if I break down I got bigger problems. Besides, I am always armed.

Don't see this as a general handgun question. I'd suggest a more worked out post in T and T.
