I don't want to hijack this thread because it has some good info and that just ain't right to do.
But we also had a shooting lately that a boy shoot a guy on a motorcycle because he just wanted to shot someone and the biker was a easy target. Turns out he was just mad at his dad. Biker did luckily live but took a couple of rounds to back and arm.
It's better to carry and hopeful never need it. Than get out and need it and be a statistic.

Let me second this as probably the most important thing on the list. Throttle-Hand-Cramp is not a fun thing.

I also recommend a throttle paddle if you don't feel comfortable with a throttle lock.
