Is carrying pointless? There's a 99.999% chance you're NEVER going to use your gun

First: No this is not a liblarp or ragebait thread. Hear me out.

Why do you carry, /k/?
Let's be honest, 99.999% chance you're NEVER going to get to use your gun. You spend hundreds of dollars on a gun, holsters, etc, then THOUSANDS on ammo to practice, and for what?
In all the years ive been carrying, ive never even gotten to lawfully THINK about drawing my gun, let alone shoot someone.
Sometimes, in an attempt to trick fate, ill leave my gun in the car when I go into the gas station or something, hoping maybe SOMETHING will happen, because its the one time im not prepared... and nothing fricking happens.
Like maybe I won't have my gun, but I can at least tackle the bad guy or something.
When do I get my turn? When do I get to be hero or die trying? Life is so fricking boring.
Do any of you ever feel this way? Like carrying is fricking pointless?

      because shooting is fun and you're over exaggerating ammo costs. If you're not a youtuber getting B roll footage you don't need to do multiple mag dumps on a range trip. If you can shoot a string of 3 shots accurately, you'll be able to shoot a string of 6 shots almost as accurately. Unless you're practicing for a competition you don't need to be doing high round count training.

      It's fun

      Kinda missing the point. Im talking about carrying, not owning guns in general.

      I carry cause I'm a troon and one of my of my troon friends was talking about how she wasn't sure if she actually wanted to get SRS, but did it anyway because she was so terrified of what would happen if someone tried to rape her and found a dick where he was expecting a pussy. I thought that was completely bugfrick insane and got my permit the next day

      Please use the gun on yourself

      Sophistication is having the strength to cause harm and not needing to use it.

      Lacking the ability to cause harm is just weakness.

          also a related point, always carry pepper spray if you're going to go through the trouble of carrying a gun. If I recall correctly the odds of non-lethal force being used against you are 3x that of lethal force. So if you're going to go through the trouble of carrying a gun, you might as well through a thing of peppery spray in your pocket that your 3x more likely to be able to use than you will your gun.

        I carry my gun because I like guns. After deploying to Syria in 2014-2015, and Afghanistan in 2016, I feel naked without a gun on me.

        I really never want to hurt anyone, but I always need to be prepared. I was not prepared one time, and I could not respond fast enough to save my buddy's life. Always be prepared, but pray that nothing ever happens.

      if SRS is referring to bottom surgery, they're gonna be more disgusted by an axe wound than a penis.
      Also they probably don't pass anyway so anyone wanting to rape them would be after bussy anyways.

            Colt King Cobra or Kimber K6XS are the best 6-shot .357 snubnoses. Most everything else will be 5-shot.
            But my 2 cents on snubnoses - .357 is uncomfortable, verging on unweildy in such a small gun, especially the aluminum framed ones. No matter how much you practice, youre gonna flinch when shooting high pressure SD .357 loads out of a gun that weighs less than 20oz. Go for a .38spl, or at least just use .38spl in your .357 if the ammo camparability is important to you. Most of the .38's will be 6-shots, and there are more options out there like S&W and Taurus
            Either way, snubnoses are a lot of fun and it's tremendously rewarding to get profficient with them since the skill curve is steeper than guns with longer sight radius& lighter triggers

        I'm mil, forced to live in MD. Got my wear and carry before Bruen. Jog early in the morning before work and disparate youths will hide out near the trails I frequent, smoking weed and the like. Several times they tried chasing me down (I run faster though lol). I used to run completely sanitized until this, so now I keep a small .380 pistol and my permit in a fanny pack. I've drawn down on 5 youths doing this and they disengage. The other time was when I was with my 2y/o picking up some food for the rest of the family and as I'm strapping her into her seat all the hair on the back of my neck stood up and I looked back to see a guy blocking me in between the cars. Drew my Glock and he bolted. I called the cops on the trail stalkers before I started running armed and they basically laughed at me on the 911 line. So I don't consider the local police as any sort of asset and forced my wife to train too. When I was working nights for a short period there was also a string of carjackings so I requested an exception to policy from the Garrison to allow me to carry on base just so I wouldn't get in trouble for commuting armed and they denied it :(. I'd probably have to let myself get assaulted to get that approved and it'd only be on a temporary basis.

    I've had guns pulled on me three times, and three times I was unarmed and defenseless. Two for intimidation purposes, and one because I got robbed. When I became of age I bought a pistol and never stopped carrying it. A few years ago I had an altercation with a drugged out beaner on my lawn at night who had a knife in his hand. I posted about it here on /k/. He rushed me and I used my CCW to stop him in his tracks and he GTFO. Gun saved me.

    Yeah I get the feeling there's a lot of anons living in sheltered nice places who just like guns, and good for them, guns are nice. But I can safely say I need them. Especially now that I work in executive protection and carry one for work.

    really good for snakes, malicious dogs, coyotes and fricking around out in the woods. I open carry a full size 1911 in 45 because I like the weight and the feel of the recoil. yeah, 0.001% chance I’ll ever need it, but it feels like an ancestral right to carry a weapon.

    >why do you carry
    So I have it if I need it.
    >let's be honest you'll almost certainly never need it
    I sure hope so.
    >ever feel like carrying is pointless
    Brownoids and morons have existed as long as the human race itself and aren't going to be in short supply any time soon, to say nothing of the more recent uniformed porcine infestation that are even more likely to attempt to harm me than any "urban youths" so no if anything being armed is more important than ever.

    I've only drawn it once when someone pulled a knife on me. They left so I didn't shoot them, but I would have if they didn't.

    come to southeastern indiana plenty of trailer trash shitbulls to magdump in self defense. use your gun, have fun and do good (shitbull holocaust). Unfortunately i believe the neighbors gsd is next because he never picks up after his dog, shame since its not the dogs fault but justice needs to be served.

    Better to have and not need than need and not have.
    I have and needed and I'll live with the fricking occasional nightmare from using it but at least I can still.
