Well, the time has finally come. My 21st was this past Saturday, and I happened to get to take the NRA's Basic Handgun course that was being offered at my local club that day. I've shot handguns before and consider myself pretty knowledgeable about their operation and safe handling, but I wanted to get a better foundation for my continued learning about firearms.
My driver's license (my only photo ID) expired on my birthday, so I went downtown to renew it today. New ID in hand, I'll head down to the PD on Thursday (had to make an appointment, and the guy who does it is on vacation till then) and be 30 days away from my CPL.
When Seconds Count, The Cops Are Just Minutes Away!!
Happy birthday, and welcome to the world of CC.

Congratulations partner! Took my class this past weekend and I'm anywhere from 30-105 days out from having my permit in my hands.
congrats. happy birthday.

I am trying to not count the days.
It feels like Christmas is coming early and I can't get to sleep!
Applied today, by appointment. By the book, the PD and FBI have 30 days to run all the checks they want. So long as they find nothing, I can walk in on day 30 and pick up a shiny, brand new CPL.
I'm gonna go to The Beltman for a new gun belt. I've settled on 1.5", and I'll probably end up ordering 7 holes, with the 2nd to last at my current tight-fitting position. I talked to him a few days ago and will only go by whole inches, so I'll have to do some math to figure it out.
I'm gonna borrow a few holsters from some club buddies. These guys have been instrumental in shaping my learning about concealed carry, and I'm very glad to have them as resources. Just a reminder to use your local club as a resource, should you have one nearby.
How do you decide whether to use OWB or IWB on a regular basis? Putting aside that I may or may not have to buy new pants, what factors go into choosing one over the other? Is it just a matter of muzzle concealment? Seems like that's about it.
Anyway, application process went smoothly, and I'm excited to get some new plastic. Thanks for the support.
Another consideration is if you will be carrying while at work, then you would maybe need a tuckable holster. Which means some folks need to have their shirt tail tucked into their pants due to dress codes by their employer. If that would be the case than you would be looking at a tuckable IWB holster. Hope this helps.
