man oh man - with the "younger generation" the way it is today you'd think that HS might be a place where it would be advantageous to carry some protection

We had a intruder drill at the high school that I teach at yesterday. As the students sat down by a walk and as I cut the lights, I was thinking how stupid this is. Just waiting for the gunman unarmed doesn’t sit well with me, especially when I know my Glock 22 is sitting in the car with 15+1 HPs! I wish I could carry at work.
"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
- Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776

yes, the thinking (and mandating) is completely wrong - they're (the mandators) are taking protection away from you good guys and, at the same time, enhancing the ability of the evil-doers to do their b.s.

Oh no no.  Dont sweat it. The liberals have done scientific study on active school shooter situations.

All you have to do is make a subtle peace sign to the gunmen when they approach, dont make eye contact..

 And the gunmen will instantly recognize you as an idiotic , fully retarded, bleeding heart libtard  :th_nuts: with the IQ of a dishrag,, and not worthy of a 25 cent bullet.

At worst, they might rob you of your psyche meds. But just give them to them,,and they will move on leaving you unharmed. You can get more.

Now if you DONT  have any meds to give them,,, THAT might be a problem. I dont think the libtards did any studies on that.

Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

Depending on what I'm wearing, I generally either carry my FNX-45 or my FN 509. I have, on rare occasions decided to go with my S&W Model 60-9 or my Kimber Ultra TLE. Not as big a fan of 9mm as .45acp or .357 magnum, but the 509 is lightweight and high capacity, so I carry it fairly often.
9MM may expand, but .45 ACP never contracts!

Until recently I was working at a place ghat prohibited employees from carrying while on the clock. So I had a Keltec P-11 IWB. About a month & a half in my shirt came up enough to expose it, & I got reported to management. They never officially told me it was prohibited when I was hired. So I switched to ankle carry of a S&W 642-1, but figured out that my P-11 fit the same holster, carried a lot more ammo, & didn’t weigh any more.

When off the clock I’ve carried the Beretta NP3 96G Centurion I mentioned in the first page, a Beretta MiniCougar, a Beretta Centurion Frankengun, the 642-1, the P-11, Beretta PX4 SubCompact Type C, or even a Beretta Tomcat. I recently picked up a Keltec P3AT that is way too easy to slip into a pocket. And  I just got a PX4 Compact Inox that feels nicely sized for carry.

I've been carrying a Bersa Thunder Pro UC 9mm for several years now. It's a sweet little shooter, and is easy to conceal.

I've also been known to carry a Remington R1 1911 in an OWB holster from time to time. Usually under a heavy coat.

Currently have a Beretta .380 84f Cheetah that's nickle plated with walnut grips...beautiful gun. For some reason hollow points make it jam though and too heavy to carry in ankle/boot  strap, so thinking about getting either a Bursa Thunder .380, S&W M&P 40c, or the Springfield XDs .45ACP which gets a 5/5 for stopping power and 5/5 for portability.

Don't read to much into what other people think are the best calibers or the best firearms. While they may be able to shoot certain calibers and firearms well you may not. Find something you can shoot well and stay with it. Get a good inside the waistband (IWB) or outside the waistband holster (OWB) and a good belt and practice as often as you can.

I've been shooting since 1965 and figured out a long time ago, with the help of the U.S. Army, what I shoot the best. As I get older, for me now, it's revolvers in .38 Special. That doesn't mean I don't have other handguns. I have several, revolvers and autoloaders, in different calibers. My EDC now is a mainly a Model 36 S&W but I do occasionally carry my S&W Shield EZ .380.
