I feel a satisfying sense of peace with a loaded .357 mag resting snugly on my hip. Very comforting.

Carry (concealed or open) EVERYWHERE!

If a business is openly anti-gun, don’t patronize them. These racist thugs need to think, “Before I attack this white boy, is my life worth it?”

Some (unsolicited) advice from a long-time CC permit holder: if you're carrying a .357, make sure you have a speed loader at the ready as well. 8 rounds (even such powerful rounds) may not be enough to fight off a gang.

Practice loading and unloading with snap caps. Also, make sure you get enough range time to practice stance, grip, sight picture and trigger control - for as much stopping power as they possess, .357s can be tough to control in a high-adrenaline situation.

Personally, I carry a high-cap (10-round) .45ACP and and least one spare mag. It's getting seriously weird out there.

Love the feel of my Smith & Wesson Model 28 by my side...

I have the same feeling with a Kimber 5” 1911 w/ 230gr HPs and 5 extra mags.

I used to think the same way. After George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin, not so much.

Even in a decidedly Red state. It doesn't take much to have Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton parachute in and make the rest of your life a living hell.

There should be the realization that the ONLY thing that matters in a situation like this is avoidance. Lack of proximity to areas where it may happen. I don't see myself (or my $$$) going to Chicago again. Ever. Stay as far away as you can, and if you do HAVE to go into high-threat areas use good planning and situational awareness ... not a firearm ... to keep yourself safe and away from trouble.
