    As I promised, I am bringing over material from the old site as I have time.

    This was a poem that I had written for the Defender for Christmas 2004 entitled ...

    An Open Carry Christmas

    I finished all my shopping
    For Christmas gifts today
    And I open carried
    All along the way.

    I saw old Friends and neighbors
    And it was really fun
    And not a single person
    Was frightened by my gun

    For I have open carried
    In rain and in snow
    For many, many years
    And this they all know.

    They have been educated
    And some have been enlightened
    And this will prevent them
    From having to be frightened.

    I’d like to think that somewhere
    Santa’s sack’s a little bigger
    Because some lucky person
    Has a gift with a trigger

    And all across America
    Handgun sales were bolstered
    Because our friends and neighbors
    Saw one safely holstered

    good to know, i was thinking about getting a XD9 to save the wear on my 1911, and something a little more accurate than the 3.5 inch barrel i have on the 1911, plus the 9 is a lot cheaper to shoot. good luck.



    and to whoever wrote the poem, thank you.
