Hoplophobia, is an irrational fear of firearms. The handgun does not act on it's own. Familiarity with a carry gun eliminates the need for many mechanical devises.
I will go one further, I do not even touch the gun unless I intend to shoot while carrying.I grew up carrying either a Colt 1911 .45 or a Ruger single action revolver. I am hard wired to thumb to automatically thumb the hammer back when I draw it. Yup, even under stress. So carrying with one in the pipe is something that I have always done with out second thoughts. I would add that I don't touch the trigger until it is time to shoot. Practice, practice, and then practice some more. It has to be automatic or you will surly forget when the fat is in the fire. Particularly if it is you fat getting seared.
All true as I recall. My old friend there passed away a few years ago. The last time we were in El Paso was 2010. It is truly a dump. My friends were neighbors to Lee Majors and Farrah Fawcett back in 1974. It seems we may have been there at the same time.That shooting range was likely a place called "Fletchers" on hwy 62-180. Montana street inside the city limits. That was where I had to proof the rifles I made in the gun shop. That range was nearly 'Downtown' the last time I was there in 1997. Horizon City is now a thriving community. El Paso is a dirty drug town that isn't any fun anymore.

I am going to PM your regarding the policing of the Border.I wore a city badge from 1972-1982 mostly in the North East sector. The drug wars were just really getting started at that time. Got just a mite excitin fro time to time. I couldn't survive on the job today. My son is a BP agent and some of the crap he has to put up with obay. I would windup fired or in jail. Most likely both.:wink:
I really didn't intend to hijack this thread. Just talking to someone that walked the same ground is sort of fun.
