    Almost threw away my new permit...

    Hi all. I am proud to say I am now legal to carry concealed in the state of Georgia.

    I received a letter from the courthouse and when I opened it up, it was a letter telling me how Alaska is now honoring Georgia's licenses. Well, I was sitting there and saying to myself, "This letter would be alot more useful if I actually HAD my concealed permit". So, I was about to crumple it up and toss it, when I heard a light "tick" on my desk. I look under the paper and there was my laminated permit.

    I am extremely happy now. It took almost exactly 3 months.

    Very weird though, how you spend all this time waiting and moaning about how it takes so long and just being so anxious to carry and reading up all you can on these forums, yet when I sat down and started to think about the awesome responsibility I now have, it was very sombering and eye-opening.

    And on top of that, I got the permit, I think Thursday or Friday and haven't even gone out yet to try it out. Tomm I need to go to Home Depot, so I think I will break the permit in there. And, I will need to make the traditional run for nachos at Wal-mart.

    I just wanted to thank everyone here who has helped me prepare for this day and for all I have learned here and will continue to learn.

    I hope I and all of you, never have to use it.

    Congrats on getting your permit !!!

    One of these days I would love to just sit and see who actually goes to Wally World and eats Nacho's.

    Maybe go by the table and whisper "Got your permit huh?"

    Thanks all, I appreciate it.

    Arkie,

    That would be damn funny to watch people order nacho's and then try to see if they are printing and try to give them a hard time about it. Well, unless it was me, then it wouldn't be funny.

    I might see who else is ordering/eating nachos when I get mine.

    When you go and look around, just look to see if they are fidgeting around and look at them and say "You too huh?"

    Be Safe!
