    I told my wife...

    That when my permit upgrade came in (thinking positively), I was going to carry all the time. She said: "I only thought you were going to carry when you needed to!". I said: "If I knew when I needed to, I wouldn't have to carry."

    I'm trying my hardest to wear this out:

    The assailant chooses the time, location and method of attack.

    Since they are unlikely to let you know ahead of time when, where and how violent they're going to be, you should always be prepared.

    Maybe she'll be cool with that.

    You might tell your wife stuff but I find that I have to ask

    Very well said. I should also tell that to my wife. I normally carry without her knowing.

    My wife seems to be okay when I put my little Kel-Tec in my pocket. But when I holstered up my Glock, she said that I was going overboard. She asked if there were any specific threats against me. There are none. She is concerned about my deteriorating back and leg health. I used that against her stating that with my current health, I cannot protect her or me from a BG.

    I must have it good, my wife doesn't mind me carrying. She also wants to learn how to handle a fire arm, just not from me.

    You should have told her "That's right, I need to carry all the time."

    i find it odd how many guys' wives are against them carrying here. I mean, i know there are a lot of people not comfortable with carrying themselves (my wife is one), but she's totally fine with me carrying. She even asks me before I leave the house if i have it with me. Even when taking the dog out!!

    If she doesn't like thinking about being defenseless, and so avoids it, she's not going to want her husband to carry a lot. It reminds her of her helplessness.

    If she thinks about it clearly, she will want him to.
