    Maybe its me, but normally people dont say a word to me. I have been paralyzed (in a wheelchair) for 15 years and you just get used to it over time, but more people spoke to me while I was OC than ever before. Walmart, Dicks, Mcdonalds...not 1 issue!

    Im hooked...and ready to edumacate... :lol:

    Out of curiosity, what were you carrying and how was it holstered (on your body or the wheelchair?)

    If you don't mind me asking, how were you paralyzed?

    Congrats!

    It was George Washington (or somebody else important) who said "An armed society is a polite society."

    Good on ya Ben! It's always motivating to see folks that refuse to let misfortune slow them down. Are you going to the GCO Fall Luncheon/Shoot?

    Great, we need all the motivated folks we can get to attend!

    No kind words at all. More words of admiration then anything else.

    Pretty sad situation, but I'm glad you're making the best out of it. :)

    I keep getting tempted to buy the Thunder .380...it's apparently a very solid gun, and you can't beat the price!

    When I lived in North Carolina I had a Thunder .380 that was my primary carry gun. (carried concealed exclusivly due to the "going armed to the terror of the public" statute) I no longer carry that gun because it was stolen from me when I got married. Good thing she thinks my Kimber is too heavy to tote around in her purse!

    I havent had any issue with mine so far. I would like a larger gun for open carry and eventually use the .380 for my BUG. I just bought my son a Glock 34 so Im gonna have to wait a while!
