I live in a good part of town, but work in a bad part with a high crime rate and almost higher homocide rate . There are a LOT of shady people around and I just want to be prepared. I hope that I never have to use it. But I want to know that I can defend myslef or others if the need arises.

Pinky, the author was asking if anyone carried a CCW, not if you hated them or not.

I would like to have a CCW someday or at least own a gun

It'* still CCW in MI and I have one. My CC for work is a *&W 410 .40 cal. The 2 CC'* for everyday is a Taurus PT145 .45 cal. and a Glock 30 .45 cal. And as for the reason, i'm an armed guard in a bad area of Detroit and part time bodyguard.

I wouldn't call my neighborhood bad, it'* pretty nice in fact. But there is NO SUCH THING AS A "SAFE" PLACE. Not ever, not anywhere. "When seconds count, the police are mere minutes away."
I don't expect to use my pistol to defend myself. But I am able and willing to do so, if I'm forced to.

I just turned 21 about a week ago and I plan on getting my CCW very soon. I only have a .38 special for home protection right now. I plan on buying something else to carry but I'm undecided as to what at this moment in time.

Criminals expect to victimize helpless people; we shouldnít have to be helpless. I have great respect for the police in my area but I know they canít be expected to protect every person every minute of everyday. So as a citizen I would like to take the liberties I have and use them to protect myself.

I have an analogy of sorts; like how someone with a brand new reliable car may get coverage with AAA. They do it knowing that they might be out of gas in the middle of nowhere or have a flat they canít fix.

Just like I maybe out in my low crime town while someone tries to rob me figuring everyone here feels safe so they have no reason to further protect themselves.
