IMO a grocery cart is another tool in the toolbox.
Where I most often go grocery shopping, in a small town, they have both the regular ones, and the small ones. I really like, prefer, and use the smaller ones. I am single, and while I can often just carry out my groceries, I still use the cart going out to my vehicle.
Now where I reside, I have a lifetime CCW permit/license. My thinking, if you will, works for those whom are denied the right to carry concealed. And yes, in the name of being safe, and all that, one is wise to swallow pride, and use a cart, or cane. No matter age, gender, or how physically fit they are.
-One has a "tool", and distance is your friend.
-If one is CCW-ing, hands are free to access firearm, or cane.
In another thread it came up about using a cane, and many folks, younger balk at this. Another good point is, even though one does need a cane, do not over do the limp, or "seeming in-firmed". BGs check out targets, and prefer to "prey on the weak.'
Yes, when I had been through and recovering from surgeries, the cart made it much easier for me, and often I grimaced in without a cane. It was darn nice having a cart, to make walking in the store, and getting back to vehicle easier.
Oh yeah, maybe just two small plastic bags is all I had. In fact my last visit to grocery store was only 3 bags. The small plastic ones...
Just an idea...
