My real estate agent wife asked me to accompany her to meet a client who said he could only meet at property after dark at a vacant house.
As it turned out, nothing out of the ordinary happened but I did have a handgun in my pocket just in case. When CCW laws were passed a few years later I received my concealed permit I carried only when out late at night.
As a result of increased gang and drug activity in the area, the horrible shootings at my alma mater Va Tech, and daily news reports of unprovoked violent attacks, I now carry a gun at all times.
