AEGIS’ everdaycarry.com pocket dump features a three-leafed clover. As any good Irish lad will tell you, it’s a four-leaf clover you be wantin’ if luck be what you need. And luck is certainly a large factor in armed self-defense. A lot of armed Americans depend on it . . .
They only carry a gun if they think they’re going some place dangerous. A bad part of town. An open air concert. A drug store. Wait. A drug store?
Google coughed-up 870,000 results for “armed robbery drug store.” And yet they’re such well-lit places, always equipped with security cameras and most often situated in perfectly respectable neighborhoods.
My point: you don’t know when or where you and yours might face an imminent, credible threat of grievous bodily harm or death. Depending on luck to keep you safe is a mug’s game.
Which is why so many people carry a gun. And why a small percentage of those carry other self-defense bits and pieces, like a knife, flashlight and spare ammo.
The question is, do you change your loadout — or leave it out altogether — depending on where you’re going?
I must admit: I don’t wear my Wilson EDC X9 all the time, opting for a pocket carried Ruger LCP II most days. If I knew I was going to a gunfight . . . See what I mean?
