The post is a hoot.
A comment from a4g gets right to the point:
California is not very gun friendly, so some time ago I took to carrying a doctor in a shoulder holster for personal protection. I've got a nice large caliber German gastroenterologist. My wife prefers to carry an obstetrician in her purse, which to me is a sissy doctor, but she says he's got enough stopping power to make her feel safe.
Both my kids have practiced with family doctors at the range, but I won't let them carry until they're 18.
