Carried in public for the first time the day after my permit arrived. Did the WWW thing and then carried to work that night. I work an all night convenience store that sits on a crossroad in a rural town. This store has been robbed several times in the past and I would never have taken the job if it weren't for the fact that the police are in and out of the store about 5 times a night now. However, having my gun on my hip sure made me feel alot more confident - especially considering that this last weekend we had a huge motorcycle rally in the area and had alot of strangers in and out all night. It's all good !
