    I love carrying...

    Just saying... such a great feeling. One of the best decisions I've made, as a husband and father of 3 I can't express how much I appreciate the ability to do so.

    Sitting here waiting for family to show up for my daughters birthday party with my PM9 in my Silent Thunder, all is quiet and well... just a part of my life like putting on underwear, only it doesn't change every 5 days.

    Thanks founding fathers, thanks America, and thanks for those who stand up for our rights and support them.

    It's another great day in Minnesota.

    So easy to get caught up in what gun, what holster, what method of carry, tight groups, etc... just taking a drama free moment to really appreciate this great right that we have.

    Now - Bring on the cake and ice cream!

    After a few years I still feel a sense of honor, security and duty. I guess you could sum it up as feeling proud.

    Seriously? Honor, security and duty?!?!

    Whoa... those are some mouthfuls. I don't see the love, honor, security or duty to carry in a civilian capacity. I certainly do not feel proud about it either.

    Why would I feel proud about it? Proud that I can kill someone who's trying to harm me or my family? I find no pride in that. I find no real honor or duty or security or love in that either. A duty to protect my family? Sure. But a duty to carry? No. The firearm may be a tool used in my duty to protect but I do not feel the DUTY to carry.

    In fact I can honestly say I do not like to carry. I carry because I understand my limitations and what a great equalizer it can be in the event I have to defend myself but it is a tool.

    Like I would feel no love or pride to carry around a screw driver (which, I do, in the form of a multi-tool) I don't know why I should feel any differently about carrying around a gun.

    To be honest, I kind of wonder about people who do have strong "happy" feelings regarding carrying a gun. I don't get it.

    What a bunch of Debbie Downers, it's a good feeling knowing there's a chance that if something should happen it won't be to someone I love.

    Not Debbie Downers. Just folks with a more experience. You will be there some day.

    Lighten up people...I think the original post was referring to the fact that he can now conceal carry in Minn. for the first time. Like the majority here...I do not find any "joy" in CC...... just the thankfulness that we still have a choice to defend ourselves and our loved ones...and pray that day never happens......

    It is a great feeling knowing you have the means and the power to protect your self. I was out all morning running errands, and i was carrying my full size 1911 in a crossbreed supertuck, it hides so well inside the waste band. I think the most amazing thing to me is that your walking around and past people and they have no clue at all that you have a gun. And yes, i am fairly new to concealed carry also.

    I recommend viewing some of nutnfancy's youtube vids as it relates to his opinion about the "Obligation of Carry" and "Concealed Carry Protocol", among his other "philisophical" vids. They properly adjusted my (and my wife's) pov, thinking and attitude about cc.

    Although, the novelty of cc may wear off to a degree, I'm with Thunder when it comes to my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude for our freedoms and to those who continue to uphold, protect and fight for them. IMHO, this is STILL "the greatest country on God's green earth" (according to Michael Medved).

    Funny you agree with the statement you did while having scripture verses taken out of context to somehow justify Biblically your views on concealed carry in your signature line. This is the very definition of hypocrite.

    OP, I understand your statement. I know you don't "get off" on carrying, just glad you can and glad to be an American with that right. Carry on my friend. Pay no attention to the masses who must prove they have been carrying since dirt and that somehow makes them better. You'll find a lot of double talk and hypocrisy around here, just wade through it and keep going!

    An armed citizen could have saved so many lives on that island in Norway. It is not necessary that everyone carry, but it's good if some of us do.

    I see it like lifesaving equipment, an "in case of emergency, break glass" kind of deal. I'm with Lima on this - it isn't a slap-happy "goodtimes!" thing to carry a firearm. And it's actually pretty sad that our society is so dangerous that arming yourself is a prudent measure, if you're up to it.

    Yes, congrats to our friends in Minnesota who now have an essential right. Know your law and be safe.

    I agree with JohnWFD...lighten up!

    I understand how Thunder71 feels. I'm not new to CCW, but I love my firearm(s)...I'm proud of my Glocks, just like I'm proud of a new chainsaw, or some other new tool.
    I'm glad that I have my firearm with me...I go about my business knowing that I have the ability to defend myself...I like that feeling.
