    Your braver than me! My first thought was no way was I driving to my house. It was weird, because after I called my honey, I turned onto street a few blocks away from the sheriff's office. There is a liquorstore on a side street and he pulled into the liquor store. At that point I thought maybe I was imagining things. Then I saw in my rearview, him turn around and go down the street I was turning off of. I parked in front of the sheriff's office, and looked, and here he comes down the street, and pulls into the court parking lot across thw street and turns around and leaves. I think he was trying to get an idea of where I lived, and then try to find it, bit he found the sheriff's office instead. I can't fathom why in the world he would follow me for an hour in broad daylight!

    On a side note, about 6 people up there know what happens, and we have his name and address, I think I am going to map the address and see how close it is to my work.

    Wow..glad nothing too serious came of that!! I'd have had it mapped before I left the sheriff's office, lol.
    While I would love to see what a few people I know do outside of when I see them, and I may love to see their personal time, I couldn't even imagine wasting the time, gas, and taking the risk. I'm not sure how these kinds of people can even afford stalking people! Especially two counties away from their home!

    I've never really worried myself when I was walking at night or driving with someone seemingly following me..I usually have two knives on me and some pretty nice fight/defense skills, not to mention a reputation to not be messed with in the surrounding 3 towns. But, I'm probably a higher risk than y'all that do pay attention to it and realize it. Come to think of it, I've had cars follow me up until the turn into my block and I've had people follow me while walking thinking they're sneaky. I never looked at it as a reason for me to be scared though. It's not that I don't pay attention to everything going on around me, it's the fact that everything else going on me is more interesting that a kid (all the times I've been followed) my age following me around. For all I know, my mum probably bribed a kid of a friend to spy on me and report back (which I don't doubt..sadly enough, lol).

    But, I really should be a little more..interested/paranoid about it, especially now that it probably isn't just a kid from school.

    I hope you never see the a$$ again and you don't have to be paranoid 24/7.

    Also..I believe your whole vehicle is an extension of your "home". I know a lot of people view it that way, and as soon as I'm of legal age to carry, there will be one in my car, one in my home, and one on me with a concealed carry permit.

    We are going tommorow to the gun store and look at getting me something smaller to carry. I have a snub nose .38 revolver, but its fat and loud. Our local gun store is rebuilding after burning down, so atm, there's not anywhere. Close enough for me to take classes for my permit. Hopefully they are done soon AMD reopen. I did tell my other half that he was buying me a knife tomorow. MY BO is also an officer, and she carries a knife in her pocket and one in each boot. I am thinking of getting one to strap to my ankle. Something that I can hide and grab if needed.

    Super scary but smart thinking on your part!! This world has just gotten insane! This is why I carry ALWAYS and I carry on my person for the quickest and easiest access at any given moment. In California where I live carry in your glove box is NOT legal without a conceald weapons permit :( That is the best thing you can do to take your classes and get your CCW! Good for you! Hopefully you will never need to use it but it sure is a good feeling to know you have it ;)

    We cannot carry in a glovebox or console without a carry permit. We can have a gun in plain sight in our vehicle, unloaded, or locked in a case, unloaded, with ammo being out of reach. Not going to do me any good if I am in a situation to where I need it quick lol!

    Well I am def not putting off getting mine any longer. I have been saying I was going to get it for the past 5 years and I have yet to do it. Untill then, I plan on having a trusty knife handy. I am not afraid to use deadly force if I feel as my life is in danger. I will shoot someone, I will cut someone with a knife if I have to. I just need to be able to do it legally lol.

    Just a thought here but in order to use that knife you have to be pretty darn close up. Why not ask your fellow to get you some of the good crowd control spray? Don't have to be nearly as close to protect yourself.
