If you only carry a concealed weapon part of the time, you'd better hope nothing happens while you're unarmed.
Nick, there is an old saying that agrees with you!

"Carry 24x7 or guess right..."

Glad that you're uninjured and as a concealed handgun carrier myself, I would love to hear your story when you can safely tell it. Semper Fi, Treetop

Crime victims cannot talk about the crime?
That remains to be 'proven' in court. Which is why he can't talk about it.

Say 'one thing' wrong on social media and you now become the perp... they'll twist your words to mean what they say they mean.

After the trial, you can say whatever you like.

I can't say much beyond what has been printed in the news here so far because a criminal investigation is ongoing, but a guy tried to rob me last Monday. It didn't end well for him. If you only carry a concealed weapon part of the time, you'd better hope nothing happens while you're unarmed. Here was the local story:

better not be talk'n bout me
WTF?

Glad you are OK Nickeless.

I noticed in one of the photos that the passenger side window was shattered, so I will assume that it was 9mm fired from within the car.

Looking forward to a future discussion with your input.

"The judge set Young's trial date for Nov. 18."

That's considered 'speedy trial'?

Maybe there is a lot of crime to run through the courts. Maybe there are even bigger crimes that have priority. But armed robbery is pretty high.
$75K.... bailbondsman wants 10% no?
Maybe armed robbery and the perp's "situation" added up to the bondsman giving this one a pass.
Perp can't come up with $7500??
Maybe he is new at armed robbery. Maybe he is not plugged in to the crime system.

Or maybe a lot more. It could be a good introduction to his future.

Possession of a handgun by anyone under 18 is a violation of federal law, not to mention state charges, so I'm guessing fact-finding and other factors may take a while.
