    Got my permit, first CC experience

    My paperwork was ready with the Sheriff's office 12 days after I applied, but I could just now get to pick it up, 16 days after application. Made my way over to the DMV for my state ID with CCW endorsement. Had to go to the doctors office (at the hospital, no gun zone in MO) so left guns at home. We then went out for some geocaching (if you have not tried or heard of it, and are an outdoors type, you gotta look it up on geocaching.com, SO FUN for wife, daughter and I) then headed to drugstore and Home depot. All the while I had my LCP in a recluse holster in my back pocket. I have been carrying same set up in my pocket around the house for a couple of weeks now, and was not much more aware of it while out and about then at home. I also have a SR9c and crossbreed supertuck, but with no COM or similar car safe, and not wanting to find a no guns sign at home depot or walgreens and have to leave it in the car, I decided just to go for the deeper concealment of the LCP.

    Would you believe it? The gun never fired itself, and I had no desire to shoot any of the bike riders, hikers or runners we passed on the trail! Win-win!

    So glad to be among the no longer defenseless.

    Congrats, stay safe, and keep learning.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    Congrats on the new permit, but sorry about all the places MO has as off limits for CCW.

    Well, off limits insomuch as its not "illegal" to go there really, just that if they ask you to leave, and you don't, you can be charged with trespassing. Does anyone dispute that? or can you correct or elaborate?

    You need to get that gun to a qualified gunsmith, it must be defective!

    Congrats on your permit.

    Congratulations on your permit. Glad to have you on the forum. You're smart to carry always and wise to avoid ever having to use it.

    Wow.. You're so lucky. <sarcasm> All of the rest of our guns just 'go off' on their own at least once a day. We also can't resist the urge to turn minor arguments into shoot-outs or to shoot every car that cuts us off on the highway. </sarcasm.>

    Welcome to our world and it feels good doesn't it?

    Both my wife and I have our WV permits and carry. Now that I got her a new Ruger LCR for her b'day, I get to carry the LCP she used to.

    I still carry the 9mm too, but the LCP is a dandy little pistol.

    I take it with me when I go to play music ( I am a drummer.)

    (sarcasm) You never know when I may have to shoot someone criticizing my playing. (sarcasm)
