Overheard at my Neighbor's:

Neighbor: "So why do you carry that?"

Me: "I don't want my last thought to be 'Gee, I wish I had a gun...'."

Good one.@Tam

Also:

Because having Caleb follow you around with a cup of hot coffee would get expensive.

Remember, Bond, Caleb Bond. His name has become a killing word.

Not to be too nosy, but what was the "that" in question?

A Springfield Professional. The shrunken fleece pullover I was wearing kept riding up over the butt of the pistol.

"Because a cop is too heavy to carry" is always a good one, also, but Tam's answer is golden.

Especially when you're buying your own ammo.

Even more, I'd hate my wife or child's last words to hear to be my saying, 'Gee, I wish I had a gun...'.
