I checked the mail this afternoon and was surprised to find my CCW permit in hand! It took 9 weeks from the time I turned in my application.
I had already planned on making a trip to Walmart to pick up a few needed items so I figured why not pop my carry cherry at the same time. So off I went with my G19 in my Pure Kustom holster. First stop in Walmart was of course the ammo counter. I picked up a 100 count box of Winchester (at a decent price $23.97). I have to say I did wonder if I was printing or if anyone was looking at me harder. I'm sure that feeling and worry will fade and turn into confidence with time.
Today was a good day!
