    I started almost a year and a half ago. I'm 32 now so just after my 30th birthday. I moved to NH from MA almost 5 years ago and never thought about carrying until my kids came along and my priorities changed.

    Today, I don't go anywhere without my handgun unless I have absolutely no choice but to go unarmed. But then, I will NOT relenquish my folder or OC. Same thing goes for my wife.

    I was 27 and in GA when I received my first permit. I didn't carry concealed except when I accidentally broke the law (New Mexico) because the internet back then (1988 to 1992) wasn't around for normal use (we had mil-net at work but it was such a pain that no one used it for personal use). I then moved to NY (stationed) and having guns without a permit (just to have) was a no-no :( .

    When I moved to GA I found out it was a shall issue state and got my permit without a problem. I've been carrying since then.

    When I lived in N.Y.S. I had a "transport"" permit from the age of 21 to 25, when I recived a actual conceal carry permit. There was a little gap, when I vacated N.Y.S. and arived in F.L.. Due the fact I had to go through my state G license training, then checking my mail box everyday, with fingers crossed. After a month of waiting, I got my Florida CCW G, amd D permits.

    I was 24 when I got my first CCW permit.
    I was still in the Navy and stationed on a ship that was in the shipyards in Pascagoula Mississippi and living just across the state line in Mobile County Alabama.

    I started at 45 years of age, when we moved from the Sheeple's Socialist Democracy of Illinois to Florida.

    Wow , this is like Truth or Dare

    I was born and raised in a small city - no close relatives who
    hunted or did target shooting , sooo , I never fired a gun ( except bb and pellet guns ) until I went into the Army after high school.

    Playing with all Uncle Sams toys got me Hooked !

    After that I bought a lot of toys , but being in NY , I
    never had a carry permit.

    About 2 years ago at age 53 I moved to PA
    and soon after got my CCL !

    I started carrying in 65 shortly after I got out of the Marines and I saved up enough money for a pistol. Found an old Spanish made pistol in an odd 9mm cal. Still have it. It is retired. Finally got a CCL a little over two years ago. It is nice to be legal and not worry about being caught. I am going for a Utah permit to cover the states that mine doesn't.
