Probably the most realistic thoughts on it I've heard right here. I agree I wouldn't know till I was there although I'd like to think I'd do the right thing and draw down if life was being threatened. Not into defending property with lethal force unless that in its own right has consequences that are life and death (e.g. someone's stealing my generator in the middle of winter when there is a huge power outage.)I have my conceal carry and have thought about this very situation. Actually had a long talk with my 21yr old son regarding that as he just took the class to get his. I think its hard to say until your put in that position. If no weapon is involved, then I'm getting out and throwing some hands. No I'm not a bad ass and not trying to sound like one, shit I probably lost more fights then I won, lol. But thats just my mentality. If I'm alone and someone wants to car jack me or rob me on the street and they have a gun, they can have my shit. Imo not worth getting in to a shoot out over a piece of property. Now if my Wife and or kids are with me, probably a different story as I'm doing everything in my power to protect them. I might act like I'm letting have my shit but the minute they blink I'm firing. Now if someone entered my home while we were sleeping, I'm firing on them.
My biggest fear is if I ever have to use it, I dont want to freeze up. I have heard of that happening to people and is a lot more common than you think.
Big reason I push people to train. And by train I don't mean standing static, squareing off on a piece of paper. Find a company that offers dynamic training and push your body and your mind. If you are unsure of somewhere, I have done a lot of training with MALC training institute, they are based out of Central Indiana but they have multiple different training locations.My biggest fear is if I ever have to use it, I dont want to freeze up.

I'm drawing down if able. At the same time that's a VERY compromised position and good luck making that magic happen. Tactically speaking most anything inside a car is horrible. As long as they let me grab my codependents I'm backing the fuck off and they can do what they will.In regard to this topic; scenario in traffic at a stoplight boxed in, you carry at 3 o’clock in your car with your seatbelt on. It’s cold now so you have a winter jacket. You, spouse, kid or dog in the back. Armed assailant brandishes a firearm at the passenger window, pointing it at passenger states open the door or I’ll kill you. How do you respond?
depends what they want.In regard to this topic; scenario in traffic at a stoplight boxed in, you carry at 3 o’clock in your car with your seatbelt on. It’s cold now so you have a winter jacket.

USCCAHow many of you that do carry, also have some sort of insurance policy for you in case something ever did happen? I thought Ive read that they have policies that in case you ever did use force, they have lawyers and everything ready for you to use?
I was looking at CCW Safe as well, it looks like they might have better coverage numbers but I'll do more research while I'm waiting the likely months for Illinois to process the application.USCCA
This is what I use for my wife and I.
It's like $80 a month for the best package for us.
depends. if I can go somewhere else, I do.What do you all do when you come to a place where they dont allow carry, do you just toss it in the glovebox, or so some of you have a safe/lockbox of some sort in the car to put the gun into?
Or better yet do you just not frequent those locations?
