Living an Armed Life

Choosing to live your life armed means that you have made the decision to protect yourself, that you are prepared to stop a fight but not to initiate.  You have choosen to hold yourself to a higher standard that than the average person.  It is truly an awesome decision, there is a lot to consider.  But you understand that you are important, you are valuable and some thug is not going to hurt you without a fight.  More than that, you have a confidence that comes from learning to defend yourself.  Your firearm is not your first choice, you are alert and will avoid a confrontation if at all possible. 

Most of all you recognize that if someone else chooses to start a deadly confrontation, they have made the decision to take the risk and you have the right to defend your life.

Be smart, be alert, and be safe!

Safe Shooting!
