I just got home from a birthday party for my cousin. I carried of course & when I was there over an hour & nobody noticed that I was (I must be concealing good enough) I mentioned it to another cousin, a former Marine & took him around the side of the building next to the picnic area & showed him. Of course I told him that I was perfectly legal with my CCL & he said that when he got home he was going to print out the application & get his CCL. He told a few others & they all wanted to see my gun. Now they want to get their CCL. I few others came over to talk to me about CCLs & how to go about getting one. Grand total - 10 potential CCLs should be issued by the State of Wisconsin in the next week or so. Most were Military Vets, all had DD 214s which as all they need to avoid taking the required training. The rest all had Hunter's Safety certificates which also qualifies them. Then a few of the wives came over to talk to me. They were interested, too & were eager to take a CCL class. Their husbands smiled. Now the number of potentials is at least 15. Wish I owned a gun shop.
And to think I almost didn't take my gun along. I hate to admit it but I take it everywhere. This time it was an afterthought for some odd reason.
