Vikram, I totally agree with you. It sure gives one a lot of confidence. One is prepared for the worst, also when someone like me also likes to carry.Vikram wrote:I think keeping a firearm for protection is a practical choice. The confidence it gives for the safety of the family is great. There are many places in this fair country of ours that make keeping a firearm handy desirable. Not a case of looking for a nail to hammer. Rather, it is a case of keeping an insurance just in case.
Harshit, Let me rephrase my original question as followsharshit89 wrote: I have never faced a situation like that when I need to mess up with some burgler or thief. I carry a folding knife and gun for my outdoors but really never had the chance to use them.
One more thing I want to bring to your notice that self defence weapons are carried by the people who wish to carry them.
Has any one, or some one known to you, faced a situation where there was an urgent requirement to be armed?? By 'urgent' I mean that there was no time to dial 100 as normally in Delhi cops reach the spot in less than 15 to 20 minutes.
