Ever been shot?

Twice for me. A friend discharged his .22 rifle into my right ankle. Hurt like a son of a gun. The second time was my fault. I took my dog for a walk on a hot summer day. I had my GLOCK in my pocket and every time I took a step my shorts would fall down a bit and I would cinch up my shorts by grabbing my pocket. Well, stupid me, I reached outside my pocket and BOOM! A 9mm hollow point went off and put a hole in my leg the size of a golf ball. I went into shock and hobbled back home called an ambulance. Long story short, I went to the local VA and they rushed me up to the Cheyenne Veterans Hospital. Doctors said a sixteenth of an inch closer and I would have hit the main artery and would have bled out before I ever got home, which was just three blocks from house. I learned a very valuable lesson that day: ALWAYS wear a holster.

In my part of Tx it is summer 360 days a year and I live in short and a T-shirt...

I wear this neck holster 24/7 and I even sleep with it on .

I normally ride a motorcycle everyday and my over the shoulder bag [ purse ] holster works perfect and it don't drag you pants down either . It is fast and easy to get gun out and very comfort to wear .

This one is like mine

One complaint I read about the NAA Guardian, like I have, is the heavy DAO trigger. It's about ten pounds, to prevent what you call "Glock leg"............People have to have that reason explained to them.

Glock is DA only and the way it fires if you MUST pull the trigger and to release 3 automatic safety and then it will cock the firing pin to fire . Most stock Glocks have a 5.5 Trigger ... all my Glocks I put a 3.5 trigger on them since 2004 with no problems and I carry a Glock for my CCW everyday since 2003 .

They changed the name to dumb a$$ club . A Glock is the same as a DA revolver the trigger must be pulled to cock the hammer or firing pin

I've shot a 1911 in matches and carried one for over 30 yrs and 1 time I took the thumb safety off and it drop the hammer and fired scare the hell of me . I've had many time found thumb safety off that got bumped off in a match when running around a course .

So true! I always used a shoulder holster when riding the bike and a holster mounted under the steering column on my truck.

Another clue to what you do..........or, you hang out with a rough crowd?......

You have had several posts of an educated medical nature. Can we get pics of you with your stethoscope?........
