You carry in the shower? If not, then your absolute claim is false.<quoted text>I always carry because that's the point. YOUR full of crap because YOU have no idea what other people will do, confidence is as big deterrent a when it comes to being a victim. Criminals look for lambs not lions.
The situation was, I had no gun and had five guys surrounding me holding guns. I did the math and concluded twenty dollars was not worth my life. Maybe your life is only worth twenty dollars, but I value mine more so than that.
It is called risk assessment.
Did you carry a gun while you bartended? Even if you had one behind the bar, which is not legal and I doubt you had one, you do not always have the upper hand to grab it. This is just the realities of life, as this is no action movie.
Hell, even in the cowboy movies, sometimes the hero puts down the gun because he is outnumbered. He likely gets them by the end of the movie though.
