My permit came the other day. Took about 3 weeks once I sent off the paperwork. Have been carrying everywhere I go since. I use the Smart Carry, and I really like it since I wear shorts & T-shirts most of the time. My wife hasn't even noticed I have started carrying yet (I told her I would be). She even made me try on some new pants yesterday, and didn't even notice while she was checking me out to see how they fit.
