No. Nononono. You want the Assault Wheelbarrow. And to be able to hold off the aggressors about to breach the entrance at The Gap. :mrgreen:

This may have been the greatest hour wasted of my life.

Many thanks for the link LOL!
One of the few times in my life when I take pride in Smirnoff's "I was THERE!" :mrgreen: I caught the beginning of Day 2, on HKPro, and killed an entire day, God forgive me. It ended up with something like 130 pages of total awesomness. Ah, the days before the socially challenged could only screech, "**** YOU!" and go sobbing off to their safe place.
But then again I think of the mayors nephew, his face distored with tears and terror, the GAP employees who asked for my autograph, and had to settle for a cover identity’s signature, the flashbangs, and their acrid scent, the small of napalm in the evening breeze, as I crouch behind a shopping cart in the parking lot, the target practice with my dearest comrades and friends, the members of my teams, and our live fire exercises-Can I leave it all behind? should I?
This is what brought it to mind. :coolgleamA: :lol::

My wife uses the cart as her walker, and I check her six.

pretty much the same with me.
I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on.
I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

I often use a shopping cart at the grocery store, most of the time I use one of the small (1/2 size) carts. Even when full I can generally push and steer it with one hand. This means I can keep my right arm free. I normally OC carry OWB at 3 o'clock. Thus my right arm hangs by my side with the magazine base plate in the crook of my right elbow. In order to snatch my pistol they must first move my arm out of the way and then release the retention on the holster, while perhaps not totally impossible It would be difficult for someone to do without me noticing and using my arm elbow and hand to counter the attempt. As to the cart, in any self defence encounter you forget about the shopping, it simply becomes used as a barricade, distraction, or weapon whichever is most appropriate in the circumstances. In that respect I certainly consider pushing a cart much less of a liability than carrying shopping bags.
