    Taking Mom on the Maiden Wally world trip

    Today is her first day to carry. I told her about the obligation to head to Wal Mart and she thought that would be great...long as I went along. She is scared to wear her snubby, it's normal life is spent in her car. Maybe this trip will help her see that it is not hard to conceal the firearm and that not all eyes are on her and her gun.

    Wish her luck!! I'll let ya know how it goes.

    +1 Not only will she feel better once she gets comfortable with it, but so will you knowing your mother now has the means to defend herself.

    +1...unless going shopping with your mother is anything like it was with my mom when I was a kid.

    Painful memories of standing outside a store in the mall, holding her purse for her. <shudder>

    Get her to buy you an armful of gun mags for coming along with her...or a couple of boxes of ammo...or both.

    Congrats to your mom! I wish I could get my mom to get her CCW. Maybe I can show her that others are getting theirs, and talk her into it as well.

    Good job mom!

    They don't know it but Wal-Mart is a national CCW training facility!

    Congrats to you and your mom. My mom would never carry, first she is in NY and second she thinks guns are for cops and BGs. She doesn't know I carry, although she knows I own guns, she is not a fan and dad has no clue.

    The day went fine. She was very self conscious and tugging at her cover garment. While at walmart we bought flowers and targets. Went to the local gun shop for ammo and the down payment on the sig226 (from the other thread). Then ate lunch at Cracker Barrel. She disarmed, I did not. Just recently that restaurant removed their no guns signs.

    She needs to wear her firearm around the house to get used to it. Also needs to make a minor wardrobe change.

    We went back home here to the farm and practiced a little bit. All in all it was a good day. Stressful for her, but a good learning experience.

    BTW, she did buy my ammo!!!!!

    Sounds like a good trip. Remember, nobody is looking. How many times have you discovered an off duty cop with a concealed handgun? Likely never.
