    I believe a Concealed Carry Permit really hasn't changed my driving habits, I have always been a safe and responsible driver. Carrying the hand gun concealed will not make me any safer than when I didn't carry.

    I still get a little miffed at the stupidity of those drivers who have no idea their driving habits are dangerous. I try to get over it quickly and move on, armed or not.

    Guns and permits won't make a driver any safer, knowing and obeying the driving laws and having the skills to opperate a motor vehicle will.

    I think this fits me too. I tend to remember to try avoid any situations that might get out of hand. I have also noticed I do tend to eb more aware of my surroundings which is mostly from all the excellent post here at DC.

    I'll grant that carrying a firearm can help focus one's thinking on ramifications, physical and legal.

    But there are many citizens for whom the responsibilities of being an upstanding person simply result in upstanding actions of all kinds. For such people, merely beginning one activity doesn't spawn a host of other activities or material changes in behavior.

    I'm not an aggressive, 'rager type. Never have been. I'll get there when I get there. To me, that's far more important than showing someone else up prior to getting there, or whatever else it is that 'ragers do.

    Has CC'ing made you a safer driver?

    Over all I would say yes.

    I would rather be a little more forgiving and easy going while driving and CC. It's my goal to avoid any hassles that might crop up during any kind of a traffic stop.

    I pretty much drive the same way sorta. I usually go 5 or so miles faster than the posted limit. But I used to hate when bad drivers came to close or nearly ran me off the road. I am not going to lie it felt fantastic to give them the finger. Now, after having my CC license I just shake my head and whisper to myself to the lines of you assjack! Thats as far as it goes and I ususally will let it go at that point. Hard for me to do but I've gotten better at it.....in my head I hope for charma.

    It really has. Obviously I do not want to get pulled over and deal with that while CC'ing, especially in must inform state. I also go out of my way to be courteous to other drivers. The last thing any of us needs to do is initiate a crazy road rage incident.

    No, not really. I don't drive aggressively, I do get pissed off at other drivers, but I wouldn't start a confrontation over it.

    I also speed a bit here and there. All in all, that hasn't changed with the advent of CC.

    Well said.
