There are many places in this fair country of ours that make keeping a firearm handy desirable. Not a case of looking for a nail to hammer. Rather, it is a case of keeping an insurance just in case.
Vikram, I totally agree with you. It sure gives one a lot of confidence. One is prepared for the worst, also when someone like me also likes to carry.

One more thing I want to bring to your notice that self defence weapons are carried by the people who wish to carry them.
Harshit, Let me rephrase my original question as follows
Has any one, or some one known to you, faced a situation where there was an urgent requirement to be armed?? By 'urgent' I mean that there was no time to dial 100 as normally in Delhi cops reach the spot in less than 15 to 20 minutes.
