Default Weapon Of Choice

I was just wondering if alot of ish users carry weapons on them or keeps one at home because Firearm possession is an important factor in America. I don't think a gun would be necessary for me but a little protection is important IMO. I have a brass knuckle since I was 16 and never had to use it yet but a gang of outraged black guys wanted to kick my little brothers a** after he asked if one of those guys girlfriend was pregnant (He knows the girl but it didn't turn out well since she wasn't and she hates my brother). Many ruthless people could just gang up and beat somebody to death for a stupid reason and fair fights almost don't exist anymore. I'm not a fighter myself but a fair one on one is a more civilized way to deal with an a**hole like a man than pulling out switchblades and injure someone seriously but If I was there that day I wouldn't of hesitated to smash a face or two in if this story would of got more serious. One of my friends ended up noticing my brother from far away and helped him out by drop kicking one down and threatening the others to finally make them run away.

Anyways I have no idea if a thread like this was made in the past but it would be really appreciated to know what you guys think about all of this too and by the way here is a link to the video that made me want to start this topic.

They might be getting jumped into the gang, but if not, they must
of done something really bad.

Look, I live in a decent area, so my fist is my only weapon.

But if I lived in a neighborhood where I might be a little concerned for my safety, I would have to get strapped...

Everynow and then I have a small knife on me though.

NYC won't give the average civilian a gun. It's bull**** since criminals walk around with guns. If you go to upstate New York, Long Island, Yonkers, they'll let you have a gun.

I wish I could carry a gun. Yesterday, I was playing pool at the bowling alley with some of my friends. There were a bunch of kids around my age doing cocaine and getting high on Xanax. They were also sitting on the pool tables. My friend was too afraid to tell them to get off, so she had my 6'5" 270 pound friend tell them. They got off and as soon as he left, sat right back on the table. I walked around with a pool stick in hand just in case anything happened. This is what happens when you can't carry a gun. Luckily, nothing happened, but guns do come in handy when you're outnumbered 12-5.

I used to keep a pistol on me. And brass knuckles were the s#!t. But I think that every one should own a gun for protection. Anyone that thinks otherwise is stupid. Criminals carry weapons. So by any means necessary you should protect yourself.

I carry a .45 Sig Sauer P220. Its heavier than most handguns but theres hardly any recoil when fired. Ive been through Glocks, Berettas and Walthers but none of them come close to my Sig.

Just by pure curiousity, How much did you pay for that gun?

$550, I think I might have overpaid though.

You could probably find one cheaper online, but with me I'm the type of shopper that likes to see it in person before I buy it, especially for a big purchase like a gun.
