    Smile We're everyone... and everywhere

    So far in the past few months, I've learned both my pest control guy and my Heat/Air guy have carry permits. Both times it came up in conversation, because while they were working in my home, they saw either a copy of CCM or SWAT (trying to remove everything gun-related out of my office for privacy would be quite a feat) or my autographed picture of R. Lee Ermey advertising Glock.

    Figuring I was safe and harmless they were more than happy to talk about guns, and one even showed me his Ruger LCP in his pocket holster. Seeing how both guys have to go into complete strangers' homes all the time, it was a sensible thing to carry. When they left, I sent them on their merry way with a copy of CCM.

    I couldn't tell either of them were packing. I don't think they could tell I was, either.

    cool!

    just last week a coworker/friend "caught" me reviewing posts here; we ended up having a nice discussion about his personal carry and what his girlfriend carries too...

    just goes to confirm:

    I haven't really ever "discovered" that someone I know carries yet...but of course that doesn't mean that they don't...but I have converted a few people into the CCW mindset.

    I am curious if anyone has compiled any real numbers on how many people (such as myself and my family) applied for a CHL after November '08. I would love to see those numbers, both nationally and on a state-by-state basis. I am betting there was a huge jump that is still on-going. I could not even get into a class until mid-January.

    Concealed Carry Magazine. It's a magazine devoted to concealed carry.

    I suppose that you could find data from the organization that does all the instant background checks. At least I think they are the ones that do the CCP background checks too.

    Or check with each state's issuing authority for CCP applications.

    I'm sure someone does, or has done that already.

    It is very true. Utah, I believe had a 4% issuance in March, and its only gone up since then.

    was chatting with one of my friends the other day (coworker too) and he mentioned carry permits! I said, "Wow you know what a carry permit is..." He didn't have one, but many of his friends from Pennsylvania home town did... We went shooting the next day :)
