Kashton, I think that some (myself included) are interpreting "cool" to mean empowering as in the ability to protect your life in an extreme event; that is what I thought you meant. Though, I am not retracting that the empowerment is a PITA. I think that other members here have interpreted your use of the word "cool" to imply that it makes you feel powerful which is a dangerous attitude; from reading past posts and this thread I don't think this is your position please correct me if I am wrong in my assumption.

Never argue with an idiot - they'll bring you down to their level then beat you with experience.
Lets drop it. It appears there is a Generation gap here. Apparently your definition of cool is different then mine.
That and the fact I have to consider the responsibility I have while carrying. I enjoy shooting sports and like my guns, however CC is not what I would describe as cool. Not picking at you man, just different for me than for you.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down & lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, & may posterity forget you were countrymen.
It feels like this is headed the wrong direction, let's stop this thread. I don't think I came across the right way and some people are definitely taking it in a different way than what I originally meant. I wanted this to be a fun thread to just have a good discussion about what feelings you specifically get from carrying. I haven't reached the point where it isn't on my mind while I have a CCW on me (1 year of carrying) but apparently there is a major difference after a few years of carrying.
