There is a reward for documentation of a simple straight-forward gun grab of an open carrier. One of the moderators here may speak up.
I don't know about being shot first.
I carry a gun, concealed or openly, to remind myself, as much as anyother reason, of my greater love for my fellows. When I run the scenarios in my mind, it is always of having the courage to advance through gun fire despite wounds.
Just now I am picking unburned powder off my hands - they smell good - from my Garand saluting piecs.
