    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

    NC Bullseye......Again no problem with your position at all...there may be some misunderstanding of why I am doing this.....I own my own business (Florist) and there are times when late hours are called for especially on major holidays (Valentines, Mothers Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas) ....It sometimes require we work all night and there are large sums of money on the property. I have at least 50 to 60 hours of range time with many calibers of Handguns. I am well versed in handgun safety and I'm a rather accomplished shooter. I have no intention of riding all over the state (or other states) with a concealed weapon. I will use it at work to protect me and my employees if the need were to ever arise. I also sometimes have to deliver flowers to area's known to be unsafe and high crime..But I would never look for any problems anywhere. I also would never exercise deadly force in excess of the threat presented to me. I am 66 years old, not stupid, but I will defend my home, family and workplace if necessary. I am well versed in concealed carry do's and dont's. But I do agree with you about the training...I really do.........

    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I'm a Vet in Tx we have to pay for the CHL class,but we only pay 1/2 price for the license,initial license is $140/$70 Vet,reissue is $70/$35 Vet.
    I realize a lot of people don't like the idea that some states require you pay for and attend classes,but the classes are geared towards use of deadly force,some scenarios you may encounter and how you would react,and shooting which IMHO is a way the State can say well they did hit the target the minimum number of shots required

    I'm a retired vet and own a business. I truly understand your situation and position. Just because you CAN get by with a FL license, doesn't mean you SHOULD. You're betting that every LEO knows every aspect of NC concealed carry law. One traffic stop could result in your weapon being confiscated, your vehicle impounded, and you having to get bailed out of jail. Sure, you'll be exonerated...eventually. In the mean time, your arrest will be in the local paper...the same papere that will NOT print that you were exonerated. Your lawyer fees will be a lot more than what you saved.

    As a Vet with a combat arms MOS, and lots of time combating my arms.......

    I run into a lot of Vets who had no real experience with weapons, and especially small arms or hand guns, during the years they served.

    A DD-214 does not mean you know which end of the gun to point wherever or how to use it safely! I know many people who have DD-214s who cannot even figure out how to remove the mag from a semi-auto..... It scares me sometimes.

    "...........shall not infringe." Strange how the various governments/supreme court constantly have no conception of what that means.
    "One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world are to be cured by legislation."
    --Thomas B. Reed, American Attorney

    Second Amendment -- Established December 15, 1791 and slowly eroded ever since What happened to "..... shall not be infringed."
