This is so true. I know a man that drives around in his vehicle, and openly speaks about the number and types of guns he has. But he does not carry any of them on his person! Gets out of vehicle to enter grocery store, gets a gun in his face, car and vehicle with all the guns gets stolen. He’s lucky he was not shot.
I used to live on a small farm, in the country, but at the base of foothills through which the Appalachian Trail passed. There were no houses around for almost a mile. I shortly learned after living there, even alone, ‘out in the country’ the importance of being armed at all times (not just because of snakes and coyotes). People would appear out of now where it seemed that had been traveling the trail – looking for food, water – whatever. And some were some truly scary acting people.
Thanks for the information outdoorfury.
