I have a fire extinguisher in my basement, near my bench and in my kitchen. I dont ever expect for a fire to break out in these areas but just in case it does, I would like to save the house.

Same logic for my edc. If Im ever put in a situation where Im in danger of a one way trip to the autopsy table or an operating room, I would like to be able to strengthen the odds in my favor that I miss the trip.

I dont expect to have to use it, but Im prepared to.

Because people are NUTS and I do not put ANYTHING past ANYBODY. Not paranoid, just fully aware of the rampant drugs, violence, and overall lunacy that exists in our complex and high-speed society.

Also I'm the kind of person that refuses to be taken advantage of and will go to great lengths to protect my interests (self, family, property, and other people).

I hope to never have to use my gun.

I'd rather always have it, if you don't have it when you need it, you won't ever need it again
