    Thumbs up My wait is OVER!

    Had a few bumps along the way, got a lot of support from many of you. I thank you for that!

    But my wait is now over, I hold in my hand, my Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm License.

    (Cue dancing bananas)



    Life is GOOD!

    I knew it all along madmike. The mail box gods did forgive you after all.

    Talking with all of you made the wait much easier to deal with. I do feel I'm in with "good company." Thanks again.

    Next on my list, helping my wife get her permit.

    At the same time, I'll be doing what I can to encourage others around me to take personal responsibility for their own safety. While doing this, I will take every opportunity to stand up against those who would have us disarmed in a dangerous world.

    The best weapon against ignorance is education.

    Now the real work begins for you(as it has for all of us). Allot of things have to change,be tempered,kept in check,etc.,for us. I will admit that it is VERY hard for me. I am,by nature,and past training,a very agressive person. All that has had to change for me. Every time I get dressed and slip my Kimber into its holster,I ask(myself) for strength to deter the feeling of wanting to be agressive to the people that piss me off in everyday life. I find that the older I get,the harder it is to stay calm. Understand,it's still doable,it just takes,more concentration. The loud car stereo's,the people that flip you a bird cuz your not going fast enough for them,the people that try to beat the light and almost hit you. They are out there just waiting to get us upset. We cant let them get to us. Your walking accross the Wally Woild parking lot and a couple of punks start calling your wife and young daughter very bad names. What will we do?? We have to be way more tollerant that the rest of society. It can be hard. It is for me. -------
