The Herpiest Derp

Recently on Facebook something came across my feed where a random person was spouting off about how folks who carry concealed shouldn’t wear flip flops outside the home, because, presumably it makes it so you can’t fight or something like that.

I carry most all the time I can, and I do it with a Glock 19 IWB. 

Here’s the thing though, if you like flip flops, wear your flip flops. 

If you want to go to the water park for a day of fun with the family, and you can’t safely carry in your swim shorts, go to the water park and have fun. 

This idea that plagues the concealed carry community that you can’t ever do anything that won’t allow you to carry is silly.

I’m not telling you to bend on your principles.

I don’t patronize businesses that post gun buster signs if I can avoid it, but there are some places that I go, or activities that I want to partake in where I can’t carry, and that’s okay.

  1. > where a random person was spouting off

    That’s okay. That random person is somebody important in his world.

    You live in your world, I’ll live in my world, and Herpy Derpy can stay in Derp World.

  2. But you could throw your flip flops at your attacker if need be. Maybe that should be an IDPA scenario. 😉
