I had a great experience today. I had a visitor from a newly started branch in Manassas, VA come to my office for training this week. This is a young lady not too long out of college. During early afternoon, I took her out to see the attractions in the Harrisburg/Hershey, PA area. I was explaining that some areas she'd be smart to stay away from at night, especially by herself. That led us in to a whole other conversation.
This young lady was from Memphis and had recently moved to VA. However, she began to tell me she had her carry permit from TN and VA was reciprocal so she could carry there. Nonetheless, the touring of the area took longer than I expected as we spent a bunch of time talking about guns, shooting, scenarios, etc. I showed her my M&P 9c I had in the glove box.
It was really refreshing talking to this young lady who was intent on NOT becoming a victim. She even gave me some tips on how to convince my wife to carry. We'll see how that goes.
