Understood but the point is that if i find myself in an undesireable situation I'm prepared to at least attempt to defend me and mine. A HUGE part of any plan/system to keep yourself safe is to stay away from trouble/bad areas in the first place.
As a 40 y/o I don't do the stupid things i did when I was say 20.
Also by no means do I think myself invincible just because I have a CWP and I use it on the contrary it makes me more aware of my surroundings and alert and well, careful.
