‘Carrying a Gun Saved My Life’
« on: January 30, 2013, 10:51:19 PM »
In Conyers, GA, 22-year-old Ryan Moore was at a friend’s house for an evening of leisure. He borrowed a friend’s car to drive to the nearby grocery store, where his handgun saved his life.
I was able to draw my revolver from concealment and to fire in defense as he came back towards me with the knife.  I had a five shot Taurus 651 snub-nosed .357 magnum...
Ryan killed the first attacker, 30-year old Yuhanna Williams. According to the Associated Press:

    Williams was still clutching the knife when they discovered his body.

What do you carry now, and why?
My current everyday carry gun is a Glock 21, a large framed Glock semiautomatic pistol chambered in .45 ACP with a standard capacity of 13+1 rounds. Fortunately it only took three shots from my revolver to stop the threat. However, the thought that I had only two remaining in the event the second attacker didn’t flee or had backup didn’t sit well with me, especially given the fairly common incidents of crime involving multiple assailants.

Most days I also carry a spare 13-round magazine and on occasion even still carry the revolver as a backup.
