I saw a report on the local news that there have been a spate [sp?] of parking lot robberies of women in Far North Dallas and its Northern 'burbs lately. I said to my self, "Self, it would probably be a good idea if, at least until after the holidaze, you carried your weapon on your hip." I then replied, "Yeah, you're probably right."
A couple of factors are at work here:
- While I don't live in one of those Northern 'burbs, I live close enough that these crimes make me nervous.
- While my normal carry spot is accessible, it's not as accessible as my hip.
- What I carry is legal, so don't get your Vickies in a twist.
- And lastly, NO, I will NOT state here what I am carrying, it's none of your business.
So, I'm just curious... has anyone else changed their personal habits in regards to security because of robberies, car jackings, increased violence in the neighborhood, etc.?
