I Don’t Love Guns. I Just LOVE What My Gun Protects…


I guess that headline isn’t 100 percent true, because I really do love guns. The point I’m trying to make here is that many people forget that the firearm is only a tool. It’s simply a means to an end. I carry a gun because it’s one of the most effective tools that I’m aware of for self-defense.

I carry a gun…

…because I’ve made the personal decision that the person who is 100 percent responsible for the safety of my loved ones is named Tim Schmidt.

I carry a gun…

…because I don’t think I’d be able to live with myself if I was ever in a situation where I couldn’t protect my wife and kids.

I carry a gun…

…because it is one of the many personal protection layers that I’ve created for myself.

I carry a gun…

…because while I expect and hope for good and perfect outcomes, I understand that evil will always exist in our world.

I carry a gun…

…because my daughter and my wife each believe that no matter what happens, her daddy and her husband will always be able to protect her.

I carry a gun…

…because I want to teach my kids that it will someday be their responsibility to protect their loved ones.

I carry a gun because I LOVE life.

I carry a gun because I am a responsibly armed citizen.

  1. Ever scene my 21st birthday I have carried a gun of one kind or another and owned, shot reloaded my own ammo so it was cheeper to shoot.The one little 22 cal Beretta 7 shot was all I carried living in Detroit back in the 80’s then 21 years in the service I always had my M1A and a 1911. and today always one of my AR15’s or my 500 Mossy. my next build is the AR15 Pistol to carry in my truck and the Mustang is back and that is one gun I have yet to own ,comes in the 380 but I would like it in the 9mm What scares the dick-ins out of me is I know with all the bad guys out there if I didn’t do anything to stop or prevent a bad happening Shame on me.
