    There have been several violent mugging's at North Park mall in Dallas over the past several weeks and my wife and her friend want to go there to shop. So I have been drafted to provide an armed escort for them.

    What I have noticed so far, zero additional police and security patrols that were promised. People not paying attention to there surroundings at all.

    The main point of this was my wife wanted me armed due to security concerns. That is a first, she has mainly been "eh, whatever you want to do".

    Just tag along, it might get interesting. If you have to use it, I'm sure your attention to judicious marksmanship would be appreciated. You'd be opening a gateway to hell. Don't fall in. Just sayin:rolleyes:

    Are you "following along behind" or actually all together?
    Lagging behind about 30 feet, you could see a LOT ;)

    Along with providing security,, there will be two extra hands for bag carrying,, which also means a lighter wallet for you,, so you will be able to carry more.. :):D

    Dallas Texas? With all that open carry stuff, one would think armed Cowboy gun slingers would be everywhere. :confused:

    There were several places today that do not allow open carry. Concealed is fine, that is what I am doing.

    I still haven't seen a security patrol, but I did see one LEO in the mall.
     
  8. And here I thought I was going to see a decked out S&W .380. Silly me.

    Done with shopping, wallet is a lot lighter. Why does it take women forever to buy shoes? I have determined that I have to get a different iwb holster. The freebie that came with is just too uncomfortable. I saw a nice one at Cabella's I I need to go try out.

    Do like I did a few years ago. Sent wife for CC training class. Now she carries a Bulgarian Makarov 9x18 at the waist and a 38spl in a shoulder holster. Both concealed and easy to draw quick. From point blank to 15 yards she is very good with either one. Oh, and she is 65 years old.

    Old people can kill you! :D

    Tried that at Cabela's once, she just sat in one of the big overstuffed chairs and read a book.

    Good choice in the Makarov. Good pistol.

    Very few people are situational aware and that is a big problem. The lack of police presence is a great example why many decent people carry guns and why something needs to be done about places like new York, newjersey and Maryland.

    With your wife's concern have you turned her to the "dark side" yet to carry herself? Tel her if she only knew the power of the dark side. :)

    I have talked to her on several occasions about it and so far she is not interested. When we get back from vacation she is taking a female taught handgun class. She knows how to shoot, but is not comfortable doing it.

    Make the women come with you. Turnabout is fair play.

    Try on the holster and ask them if it makes you look fat.

    Now that is a great idea.
