Next time, kill the dog. Seriously, grab its head with your free arm and snap its neck. It's just a dog.

Yeah, the gun is faster, but it's just as dead.
Since my company's insurance has cracked down a little more on concealed carry, my Smith rides in a drawer more than it does on my hip.
Nobody will object, though, to my carrying an 18" pipe wrench or a crowbar or a hammer.
I promise that any of the above will RUIN your day.

I am also licensed and well within my rights to carry a concealed weapon.

My scar was about 5" long & had a tube in it for 2 weeks. Probably had 20 visible stitches on the outside.
Barely visible today.
My attack was from one big dog. She had him in the garage while I was out working on the condenser. She didn't get the doggie door secure & he came out. I had this feeling someone was behind me- I'm sitting on the ground. I turned around & there he was. Went right for my throat but I got my arm up in time & he bit that instead. The shaking when he bit did all my damage. Owner (the wife) was a piece of work. Blamed me for the attack. Husband came home (very nice guy) & said to go to doctor & he would pay for everything. If his Homeowners policy didn't cover it, he would. I had health coverage (I'm an owner- no WC for me) so just went to doctor, they settled up with him.
I remember someone asking me if I wanted the dog put down. I'm a dog person, I said no.Always drink upstream from the herd

Was just curious about the thought of carrying while in a customer's home.... If it was discharged by a field servicer in someone's home, it would certainly bring some attention to the situation and would seem somewhat 'purposeful'. Better make sure it was used appropriately, or someone else's day is also ruined.
On the other hand, an 18" iron pipe wrench used for the same purpose would be a different matter... Still quite messy, but somewhat justified.
