and yes, I do not dispute that you would need some kind of weaponry to defend against packs of animals, but again, not AK-47's, AR-15's, Uzi's, rocket launchers, Glock 9's, hollow point/armor piercing bullets...
Nobody said anything about assault or combat weaponry. Terrorists dont live out here. But a firearm is a necessary tool, like it or not.

I've lived in the woods for 6 years now. Not visit, live. I've had to kill 2 animals in that time. One was a dangerous animal, the other was causing property damage. If I didnt use a firearm, problems would ensue.

I dont kill spiders unless the wife or kid sees them first.

Each nation to their own, I find it really hard to even comprehend the need to have a gun as part of my drumming rig. What kind of mad max gigs are you guys n girls playing.
The gigs where men are men and the women love it.

I am trying to answer this in a way so as NOT to have the thread shut down, so mods feel free to delete this post or "smack my hand"....

first: I grew up using rifles in marksmanship exercises and competitions, so I am not totally anti gun....BUT,

this is part of my point...using a gun allows a person to react impulsively; using a gun allows the act to be impersonal - hell, you don't even need to see the victim eye to eye to kill them; using a gun allows the person to not even think twice about killing; using a gun means you don't have to experience the victims death...you don't have to see the fear in the victims eyes, feel and/or smell the blood as it leaves the body; there is no other weapon..er..."tool"...that allows you to be that distant/impartial and impulsive. Even bows and arrows, spears, bolas', slings, crossbows have a shorter range, and you have to actually think before you use it as far as hitting the target. Those weapons only limit you to one or 2 shots to kill...not 100's.

You whole focus on gun ownership is fixated on what bad or unstable people use them for. What about the other 99% of us? You have a twisted and contorted view of guns where you take the actions of criminals and lunatics and somehow associate them with everyday people who own guns.
I have never, and will never own a gun b/c I have never really felt like I needed one. While I don't generally go out seeking situations where there will be trouble for fun, I do willingly participate in an activity that puts me in some shady places. In the 40 years I have been doing this, I have only been in the (above mentioned) 2 situations where I needed a "tool" to diffuse a situation.

when all is said and done, I am not condemning gun owners. I just don't get the state of living in so much fear that you feel the need to be armed like a solldier 24/7, when you are just a civilian...that would suck

You claim to never have found yourself feeling like you "needed a gun" (because apparently downtown x_ville is so safe), while explaining to us how dangerous gun owners are in public. So which is it?
You feel so threatened by normal, decent people carrying a firearm because a gun somehow transforms us into crazed killers, but feel no need to be prepared to defend yourself against some real-life violent SOB at a gas pump or dark parking lot willing to kill you for the few dollars you might have on you, and ridicule those of us who are actually safer than you because we carry.

The fact is people own guns and you simply can't can't it. The thread was about holsters lol. And in rushed the "I just don't understand" crowd. You/they can't stand it lol.

BTW I don't say any of this with animosity, I love you man, I love your posts. We're all friends here and we can't all have the same opinions and beliefs. 🖖

Hi you copied my post in, so I assume you addressing me, at least in part.

The original post stated “Out of curiosity for those who conceal carry what holster brand or company do you use for conceal carry while playing behind the kit? So I think my posts were broadly in line with this question, although I accept I am not a gun owner. I do have experience of death from hand guns, so it’s not hyperbole or an over reaction.

Yup, those things certainly happen, and every case is one more than it should have been. Two of my uncles were killed with a gun. One mistakenly shot by police (they raided the wrong damned home), and one suicide. But to take that reality and turn it into - people shouldn't carry - is in fact hyperbole and an over reaction.

Bunch of amateurs - all of you! I take my Yamaha Crosstown Flamethrower with me. Best 99 bucks I've ever spent and it only weighs a meager 3.4 lbs.
Not recommended for Cool Jazz, though. :rolleyes:

I would imagine the three guys with the flames shooting out of their faces get paid more?

When I'm looking for food I make sure it is mine for the taking.... empty clip, all 50 shots! Sure it doesn't LOOK LIKE a musky anymore but I need a cigarette.

Well I don’t agree, guns and gigs aren’t compatible. Rather than ding dong back and forth let’s just agree to disagree.

I'm of the opinion I'd rather have it and not need it, then need it and not have it. I'm not gung ho about putting holes in someone, but the reality whether I have one or not is my personal choice and that's not the question. The question is how can have one and it not effect my ability to play my instrument to the best of my abilities.

Maybe is because i am european..

But i am not really understanding why this is considered a “normal” topic to discuss and a fellow bandmember that uses a bunch of weed not..

Weed topics get shut down within a few hours, but to discuss guns and all that crap can last a few days..

I am not caring at all if the thread is there or not btw..

Just thought is somewhat remarkable….nothing more than that…🙂

I'm still trying to imagine the scenario where one not only must have a firearm in a church, but it must be readily accessible at all times.

Do you have a family? Kids? Are they depending on you to keep them safe? And your strategy is what? Hope? Luck? Screaming for help?
Why do you confuse (I realize it's intentional) being prepared to defend yourself with "needing to" defend yourself at all times. As if we're preoccupied with danger at every turn.
I wear a seatbelt when I drive, it doesn't mean I crash every day, nor does it mean I have some unhealthy "fear" of crashing. Being freaked out or baffled by the millions of gun owners who carry is bizarre.
