You motherfuckers. Goddamn fear mongerers. You assholes are going to have me standing in line with all those other suckers at Gander Mountain to get that pretty M1A that was hanging on the wall today. I hate you all.
Then somebody will come steal all my ****, including my new M1A because I didn't buy a safe.
Gunkies. Gun junkies.
Might work out for me... I've been thinking of selling my S&W Shorty Forty, a little Obama Panic Pricing might tip my hand.
Are you trying to intimidate me by waving your substitute phallus in my face, Devil? Bring it on, come over here and bring that on the plane with you.
1) Be smart. Wield stealthily. Brandish not. Others can only take from you what they know you have and where you keep it. Get position on any who threaten you, and they'll never live to know what you have.
2) Go the open-carry route, second-amendment-clamouring chest-beating and showing off the firepower you've purchased, perhaps to make some kind of ideological point.
Whichever you think is more tactically-intelligent.
