President Ronald Reagan carried a gun

A former Secret Service agent remembers that when Reagan was running for president the first time, he came out of his home in Bel Air to drive to Rancho del Cielo, the 700-acre Reagan ranch near Santa Barbara. 

Another agent noticed that he was wearing a pistol and asked what that was for. 

"Well, just in case you guys can't do the job, I can help out," Reagan replied. 

Reagan confided to one agent that on his first presidential trip to the Soviet Union in May 1988, he had carried a gun in his briefcase.
