This is a theme that our regulars know I touch on from time to time: Carry guns that people don’t actually carry. The internet is full of it. Guys posting photos of their HK Mark 23 pistol, 4 pound Randall Knife, 8 magazines, 2 backup guns, 3 flashlights, and 2 watches.
Yes really. I will never forget the 2 watch guy! But that’s not my point. This is:
Everyone’s life is different. Some people work in coal mines. Others in classrooms. Some people work outside. Others inside in the AC.
But I don’t care who you are, and what you do. I’ve never seen a daily carry gun that looked factory fresh. Maybe it’ll have corrosion from sweat? Maybe flaked off deodorant from under your shirt? Pocket lint in the firing pin channel? Scuff marks from you either dropping it, knocking it out of the holster, or you literally falling on it.
I’ve seen it all. But these “All day, everyday” glossy pics of a gun you strap on a few hours every weekend? Whatever, dude. You’re all lying.
Now For the Payoff
Why do I care? And why should you care? Because if self defense, and gun competency, is really something that is important? Why do so many people start from a place of the worst of all possible lies? The lie you tell yourself.
Carry a damn gun!
