Would you pack heat even though you have the Secret Service?

I think I would.

hell yeah.

Hell Yeah...Glock 18!

No ------------ it would ruin the cut of the suit.
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 1:20:12 PM EDT
well yeah
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 1:20:25 PM EDT
I'd insist on it.

He's probably carrying Saddam's old gun. Wouldn't that be the sh!t.

Not-------if you had it tailored correctly.

The first time I went into a men's store to buy some suits and have my existing ones fixed for conceal carry, I got some strange looks. Now they advertise the service.

hell yeah if I had to meat with scumbags like he does I sure would...

Hello Abbas.. goodbye Abbas

POTUS carrying a Glock?

I'm thinking I'd give Colt a call and say I needed a custom carry gun. I'm sure their engravers would have a field day.

Given all the hardware that is around the President at any moment, him carrying a gun is just plain redundant.

Still, I would probably pack a 1911.

I don't think so.

Your timetable would not permit enough practice so that you could reliably assist the SS in protecting you. Think about it, normally he's surrounded by not only crowds, but crowds of VIPs.

Taking a shot in those circumstances is hard enough for the guys who constantly practice.

ETA: MP5K, shoulder rig.

No. I would officially ban the use of POTUS and SCOTUS!!
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 1:31:41 PM EDT
Honestly, no. I'm sure SS are better shots than me and it might be taken the wrong way by some.

No.

My numchuck skills are flippin sweet.

Link Posted: 1/11/2005 1:33:42 PM EDT
Damn straight I would! 1911 baby, yeah!
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 1:33:49 PM EDT
I'd carry a SAW everywhere I went and the first lady would be my ammo bearer.
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 1:34:44 PM EDT
If you're the POTUS....you can make time if it's improtant enough to you!h=85%

Oh yeah! I don't think SS would allow it though if they knew. Would you wear Body armor???
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 1:35:56 PM EDT
I would have an MP-5K or an SBR AR mounted in a briefcase handcuffed to my wrist. I would also have some water and an MRE stashed in there. I've been paranoid about that since I saw "Escape from New York." I would be wearing "hearing aids" at all times. How about a Kevlar-lined Brook's Brothers suit? I would put James Bond and Q to shame with all the tech I would be packing for my survival.

There was a thread a while back that was talking about Dick Cheney shooting his machinegun collection at the Secret Service's range. These guys ( the president, at least) are America's top cops and military leaders, they can play with the toys any time they want.

I read about Lyndon Johnson inspecting some F-4's and some crewman took offense and said,'Sir I need to check higher up to see if you're cleared to touch our plane." He said," Son, I'm the Commander in Chief, they are my planes." Or something like that..

Teddy Roosevelt had a rifle range on the White House grounds, IIRC.

Link Posted: 1/11/2005 1:37:59 PM EDT
Yes. If I'm seperated from my security or they're occupied with other threats and somebody tries assassinating me, I'm shooting. And since I'm the freaking president, you can just imagine the toys I'll have access to for concealed carry. Ooh, twin PP-2000's and that new 9mm AP the Russians designed it around. NICE.

Could you see W showing up for a photo opp with an M60 and a bandolier? The liberals would start going into convulsions.

No convulsions, they'd drop dead.

Oh, forgot, I'd take just a blued 1911, night sights and tested for reliability with hollow points.

Most deffinately, and I would want some form of rifle in the back of the damn limo too
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 2:14:24 PM EDT
I'd carry a suitcase nuclear bomb and some tic-tacs. Leave the firearms to the professional shooters.

Once when Teddy Roosevelt visited Harvard, the university president discovered to his horror that TR was carrying a gun in violation of Massachusetts law restricting concealed handguns.

Eleanor Roosevelt wrote in her autobiography that she started carrying a gun almost as soon as she and FDR moved into the White House in 1933 because she refused round-the-clock Secret Service protection.

Link Posted: 1/11/2005 2:25:05 PM EDT
I would, but then I'd get arrested for being the POTUS in violation of the DC law banning firearms - talk about irony........................
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 2:38:21 PM EDT
Somehow I just think that POTUS has slightly more significant issues to be concerned about----leave the POTUS security issues to the SS.
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 2:47:36 PM EDT
I'd have 2 engraved 1911's in shoulder rigs, and 4 mags on my waist line. And I'd never wear a coat. Only a shirt and tie, with my jump boots. No pants. Just my "Home of the whooper" boxers. And I'd answer the phone in the oval office"Pink green purple, steak and cool-aid".

The EU would shit.
