    Yeah. CRI-pry is painful, but refreshing (and sobering) once you see the light.

    It can take time to realize that threats are only getting worse. Statistically less frequent, perhaps, but worse. Faster keystrokes on the ol' telephone ain't gonna solve the problem, when a cop's a few miles away during an attack. You've got to deal with it and survive long enough to await arrival of the cavalry, particularly when it's highly likely that you won't be able to call the cavalry until it is over anyway. Can't do that with mere prayer and pixie dust. CC and related training is one of the few things that can help in that regard.

    Congrats on the application!

    Rite of passage. You get your permit and the first place you CC is at WalMart. Its just to get you over the "everyone knows I have a gun on" thing.

    You'll be fine. Dont forget the nachos if they have em in your area.

    Congrats.
