An interesting question floating around my picnic table Sunday evening. Premise: The biggest, most extravagant gun collection on earth isn't worth much if some stonedome pulls a knife on you and your wife and your 1636 Captain Black Special is home in the safe! So, what's it gonna' be? You may have ONE pistol. (Or shotgun or rifle or brickbat if you prefer, but this IS a revolver column.) Please tell me/us the, "what and why," of your choice. Let's assume, too, that you are NOT a policeman nor personal body guard to Donald Trump and really, legally, shouldn't be carrying a gun in the first place, as that, almost certainly, is how the police investigating the homocide you just committed will look at it. In my adopted state - Kansas, you'd think we'd have super liberal gun laws, wouldn't you? One MAY carry ANYTHING, in the open ... but NOTHING concealed without a badge or county permit. (A pistol in the glove compartment is a concealed weapon here, so you may as well have it on you.) And, "No," let's assume we are not interested in wearing a fast draw western rig with two nickeled Pythons nor carrying a Garand at port arms in to your favorite steak & ale house! So, we've got to 1. pick YOUR favorite, "carry-almost-all-the-time-and-nobody-knows-it's-there gun," and 2., how you're going to carry it. Gentlemen, I await illumination.
