    Whats wrong with people?

    Ok it's Valentines day.... Started off the day buying some flowers and cold meds to run home to the grlfriend. She's sick in bed. I call at noon to see if she wants me to run her home some food for lunch....

    She asks me about helicopters and the shooting in lakewood.

    http://blog.thenewstribune.com/crime...t-of-shooting/

    Now a group of officers every year will probably think of the valentines day morning where they had to shoot down a lady that was begging them to shoot her. If you want to be dead, do it your self. Suicide by cop is rediculous.

    5 minutes after my conversation with her I walked outside my shop and noticed a nice big bullet hole in the window. I wish I had a green laser to point it out the bullet holes and see which apartment accross the street that came from... It must have happened over the weekend. I think my girlfriend is slowly realizing my urge to carry is not so un-necessary.

    OT: Why green and not red? I'm shopping around for a laser and am open to suggestions. Not meant to hijack the thread. PMs are welcome!

    Green is faster and shines brighter.


    Been harassed by the police? Yelled at by the anti-gun neighbors? Mother doesn't approve?

    I agree though if you are going to do yourself in please don't involve anyone else, that's a real crappy thing to do.

    On a serious note though, green lasers are the more powerful ones.

    The green laser I got is pretty badass, shoots at least a mile away at night. Even in the daytime I can shoot it down the block and see what I am pointing at.

    Brand names always cost money. Just gotta look at reviews on the "generic" brands to see which is good. Find a good, cheap, generic brand, and you have a good buy.

    Because the human eye can see green easier and better. The wave length thing. That is why MOST road signs are green/white. You can read the sign at a greater distance.

    There are too many "Brand Name" products out there that are merely generic components with a better looking logo/label and a "hi-octane" marketing program.

    The trick is sorting out the real deal from the overpriced.

    I agree, you may want to find a safer city to live in, you know one of those exceptionally safe cities that bans guns, and where criminals know there place.

    Where you are safe from everyone but the politicians who tax you out of your ability to pay.

    Green vs. Red

    Yes green is supposed to be better than red for daylight use. I have a small red laser that goes on the rail of my Kel-Tec PF9 and Taurus 24/7, but only at the house. Good luck finding holsters (hard plastic serpa type) that can accomidate rail mounted lasers.

    Crime is everywhere. Sure there are high crime concentrations and sure Lakewood is one of them. At the present time we live in a decent house, on a well lit street in one of the better parts of lakewood.

    I think the main difference between myself and most likely people like those on the forum compared to people like my GF and others that don't carry and participate in sporting firearms is simply the way we go through our day. I go through my day assuming that everyone is carrying a gun. Even little old ladies. This is where my GF and I really differ. She thinks it's absurd to accept and go through life always thinking about guns being everywhere.

    It has something to do with the conversation on paranoia in the bathroom thread. I am much more aware of my surroundings that my significant other. I go into a store and I notice cars parked strangely out front, people loitering in the parking lot, exit locations, ambush points, and pay attention to arguments I hear. In the hopes that situations can be avoided.

    I once was in safeway looking for greeting cards and on my way out I noticed a lady talking on a phone up by flowers with a cart full of produce and frozen food. She was holding up some flowers but spend all her time glancing around and looking at the exit. I moved toward the door picking up a flyer, noticed store security checking her out. As she went for the door I walked out infront of her, after she made it 10 feet out the door I spun around and she noticed my gun, at the same time security was yelling at her to stop. She froze, security guy chuckled and said thanks as she was escorted back into the store. That is still probably my favorite open carry experience.

    No worries about a dead battery either.

    LOL, no I didn't say a word. I just turned around and she stoped. I'm sure the outcome would have been the same had I kept walking. I more or less just wanted to watch her get busted.

    I'm not the only one who looks at all the visible exits, odd behavior and eves drops on conversations? My girl thinks I'm a little strange for "people watching" so much and picking the way I face when I sit at a restaurant. I've been like that since I was a teenager.
