    Sometimes I like the USPS

    Got home today, checked the mail and there was an envelope from the local Sheriffs Dept. Opened it up and there gleaming in the incandescent light of my living room, held proudly in my right hand was my CPL. Only took me 56 years to decide to finally get one, well, minus the first 21yrs. But now I am legal. My town used to be a pretty safe town to live in and never really thought about getting a permit. But sadly things have changed and after my daughter being assaulted and my son having a gun stuck in his face by some bangers I figured it was time. I pray I never have to use it but I'd rather be prepared to than not. So, my M&P40c is my new best friend.
    Cheers ya'll be safe.

    Congrats on the new permit. Better to have it and not need it, than to need it to not have it.

    Congratulations! The reason for your decision is the same many, many others have made ... and for good reason.

    Better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6!

    Congratulations I believe it goes something like "Lord please grant me a good sword and no reason to use it."

    Congratulations on now being able to protect yourself and those you care about. It does carry a heavy responsibility, but also provides peace of mind.

    Thanks, ya know there is not a minute that goes by when I have a firearm in my hands that the responsibility of what I have and how it only takes one momentary lapse of focus to change yours and someone else's world forever. And it does weigh a hell of a lot.

    Welcome to legal concealed carry! You have an excellent carry gun with the 40C. I carry mine 2/3 of the time (or more) & my FS M&P40 the rest of the time. They both fit in the same holsters & that's a plus. Many times I'll carry the compact with a FS mag & X-Grip.

    Congratulations, I can somewhat relate. Other than duty carry during my first three years in the Air Force, I bought my first gun at age at age 60 and did not get my CC until age 63. Picked up the gun, took it home, unpacked it and sat down at table with it in front of me and said the following Prayer. "Lord, may I never have to point this gun at another human being, but if I do, please make my aim true and my reason justified."
