ah i think i didnt explain my situation well enough, my bad. the revolver is not sitting on the seat next to me in plain sight. i usually have it covered. leaving it in plain sight would give someone a reason to bust the window and steal it. a real possibility up here and being that its just around my insurance deductable it wouldnt be worth turning in so i would be out what i paid for it. but by keeping it covered should i be pulled over for a busted tail light or such if the officer is having a bad day he/she could bust me for having a concealed weapon w/o a permit. granted most cops in the area know me and would prolly just bring it to my attention but who knows. it was recommended to me by a couple of the officers around here that i should just apply for the CCW licence because they understood my intentions and would rather not have me busted for something like this.
like i said i have no use for the original intended purpose for the CCW permit but i land in a grey area and that is the reason ill prolly end up getting one. for personal protection, well the only place i really worry about that is at my home. for that i have one of the original Ruger 44 carbines loaded with good ammo. and if all else fails i have a Marlin 1895G in 45/70 which can put an end to any fight i pick with most anything be it man, beast, or pick-up truck [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
