Kahr PM 45. Not too small to control, and I like the .45 round

I remember strapping my .22 across bicycle handlebars and crossing the palmetto expressway to go plinking when I was a boy.

Miami late 60's

Just curious, those who carry a gun while riding, have you had the occasion to actually use it to defend yourself or someone else? I mean seriously, not just to scare some silly kids

Don't misunderstand me, I'm a firm believer that all responsible citizen should definitely own a firearm (and be thought how to use it). I own two. And despite my age I can (still) hit a helmet at 300m without scope. ok ok ... now it's a full-face helmet - Used to be a beer can some years ago lol

Never had to draw my firearm. Hope I never do. But I carry it everywhere just in case. I am licensed to carry in 36 states. While doing a Route 66 ride a couple years ago, We quit before hitting the California border do to their anti gun laws.

Ok. I'll Fess Up.

I carry a slingshot. I have shot it in anger. At dogs.

I’ve shot 2 dogs and 1 radiator. Killed all 3.Autos are quicker but leave evidence if the fuzz print your empties. A well tuned ruger wheel gun is hard to beat. Learn to shoot left handed and don’t be a victim, most assholes who tailgate have a tendency to back up once the shooting starts.
