    Wife's Wally World trip

    Miggy's map in hand, off we go!

    Good trip. I wouldn't let her purse or pocket carry.......it's just not the same thing for the Wally Walk..... So she strapped on my Supertuck/K9 combo and then spent the next 30 minutes finding an ensemble appropriate to the occasion.....while I waited patiently.

    We actually did Sam's instead of Wally World. She seemed very comfortable the whole time and probably a lot more at ease than I remember being lo those many many years ago. That may be because she's so used to the concept of cc from being with me all this time. No nachos because we were headed out for a pizza to celebrate afterwards....

    Interestingly......we went to our favorite pizza place that we go to every week (Ok, we're in a rut when it comes to pizza, but you just don't mess with good pizza) and walked up to our normal booth when she starts to get in on my usual side! When I asked her what she was doing, she just looked a little shocked and said, she didn't know. I asked her to think about it a little and she said, "well, I guess I just wanted my gun side next to the wall, plus I can see the door better from here." Completely intuitive for her......I think she's gonna do well!

    Now we just have to find her the right carry gun. 100% her choice, so it ought to be interesting. Updates as they occur.....

    wow great trip...but taking YOUR side of the booth??? I don't think I could handle that!!! you might need to find a location that allows you to both see the door...but I couldn't sit with my back to the door....it would drive me nuts, and I wouldn't be able to enjoy my pizza!

    Maybe one day my wife will make the decision to carry her pistol. She's had her license for two weeks now and hasn't carried it anywhere but on the range, and at two Fighting Pistol type classes.


    Congrats to your wife though ;)

    Sounds like when she does, she'll be well prepared!

    I wouldn't be too worried.

    Congrats to the Mrs. Glad to hear that she was that comfortable with cc. My first time, I thought I had to be printing and everyone was watching.

    Me too, sorta...

    Reminds me of last weekend when my wife bought her new .380 at a gun show. She has had a concealed carry permit for quite some time, but only recently began carrying religiously. She had stolen my .380 from me and forced me to always carry my 9mm...

    but anyway, she bought her own and we went out to eat and to a walmart and bought her a couple hundred rounds to run through it. Then, we cleaned it, shot up all the bullets, loaded it with hp's, and it is now residing on her right hip, under her blouse which has a new look to it....untucked.

    And now that I got her possibly doing the scuba classes, I'm pretty happy about it. Good thing she bought the gun before I bought some diving equipment.

    Hope I get my diving equipment before she gets hers.

    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.
