    Got my permit

    Well I got my permit (Virginia) in the mail on Saturday. It only took 3 weeks, and have been carrying ever since. Yeah I know, it's not as long as alot of people on the site but nevertheless. Noticed alot of things going thru my mind now that I've been reading about on here for a few weeks now. Whats the safest route to my vehicle? Who's near me? Can anyone tell if I'm carrying? It's defiantely alot different being armed and out in public and nothing that I will ever take lightly thats for sure.
    But one thing for sure is having a GOOD holster that your comfortable with. I've got a new DH on the way just cause of that fact.

    Also, since Ive gotten my Ruger KP944, Ive put almost 1500 round thru it without a hitch. It's alot bigger frame than alot of you carry but I'm sure a smaller version of a 40 will be in my future.

    Good deal, after a while you will feel naked if you don't have your sidearm. Besides its a good excuse to buy new guns and accessories.

    congrats , and welcome to the world of self responsibility , dont make the mistake of thinking the mental changes will stop with whats on your hip LOL .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    congrats and....

    CLEAR OUT A DRAWER FOR HOLSTERS

    only way ta know is ta wear it and you'll never git rid of one 'cause ya never know.....

    unused holsters find a way to pass the time in the darkness of the drawer.... THEY MULTIPLY LIKE BUNNIES
    Condition "yellow" is a heightened state of awareness & response.
    It is not paranoia...
