|Licensed to Carry!|
I found this photo in one of the albums, it is from 1990.
Yes, we are all holding hand guns. Just home from the firing range, having just completed the
Firearm course required to Open Carry said guns.
Are you thinking WHY?
That year, there was a rapist running wild, preying on women who were jogging.
My cousin and her friend felt safe with two together, but had stopped running due to hubby pressure.
I was selling Real Estate and several realtors had been attacked while showing homes or holding open house. One Realtor was murdered and a teacher had been kidnapped and murdered.
Our broker required us to go to a seminar on how to protect ourselves and the precautions to take while showing houses.
the Seminar was presented by 2 off duty policemen, who also trained at the firing range.
I learned a lot, that still is with me about safety precautions.
Scan the inside of the convenience store before you rush inside.
When about to leave car and enter, pay attention, scan to see what is inside and outside.
someone may be robbing the convenience store. if they are LEAVE FAST
Don't sit in your car digging in your purse, or counting money, or balancing your check book.
Go in groups, don't walk alone
4. Go in groups of people,
M cousin and her friend did apply and receive the license to open carry
and did wear their guns while jogging.
I passed the course with ease, but never applied for the license.
I mean who would buy a house from a realtor that was packing a gun on her hip and if it was in a purse what good would it be?
