Yet another Kansas Wal-Mart visit
This might be getting old since so many of us carried for the first time today.
Got the permit this morning. The DMV had been open for 1.5 hours and number 1 was still on the take-a-number rack. Got the temporary CCL and chandged my DL address all in about 15 minutes. I had the thunderwear on and the glock in the truck, but I had to go straight to work so I didn't bother to put it on (federal building).
I just have to say, the no carry sign at the DMV made me laugh. It's already an off limits zone as a state office building (or so I interpret) and anyone going there today was unlicensed.
Lunch break, I go outside, load up the glock and spare mag and head to BK. Just another day at lunch. The funny looks I got were just because I'm the only guy walking around town in digital cammo and a beret.
Back to the office for another 4.5 hours unarmed.
After work, change clothes in the locker room (Levi's, T-shirt, and a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt to add to the irony), head out, load up, and it's time for some more shopping.
My fiance asked me to pick up a copy of Animal Farm..... 1984 was right next to it and I figured I should have that too. On the way out I saw in the used CD rack, "The Bluegrass Tribute to the All-American Rejects", couldn't resist. Good stuff too, I recommend it to anyone who likes bluegrass and the All-American Rejects (small market I know but we do exist. Heck, there's even an AC/DC bluegrass tribute band called Hayseed Dixie...... you can't make this stuff up)
In the checkout line I took note of the young lady in front of me looking quite possibly in the direction of my jeans zipper. Shortly after I noted the thunderwear had ridden down a bit and the muzzle was printing (I'll leave out any speculation as to her thoughts on the matter). Quick trip to the restroom and all was right with my wardrobe again. Other than that incident, I never had a concern that someone would know I was packing. It could have been that I've been carrying at home since I first embarked on the CC journey (Thanksgiving with the fiance's family was a great test) or that I've carried weapons openly on duty and nobody ever gave it a second thought.
Then to Wally World. Previous reconnaissance had shown nachos not present for on site consumption so just chicken breasts for tonight.

Good fer u.
Now you're going to figure out nobody really looks to see if you're carrying. The sheep don't care and if one does spot you they're going to figure you're a LEO.
Have fun and be safe.

Welcome to the CCW world. How's that freedom feeling so far?
January 5th, 2007 08:09 PM
pt-111 does everyone else feel proud to be witness to freedoms exercised ?
i didn't think much of it other than i was happy when our state went procarry.
i did have the application for 2 years before filling it out . now that i have it though i guess i'm more aware . plus only living 30 miles from kansas border makes it more appealing .
now if i can just get that 11 county ban lifted here .
anyway congrats kansas
