I had a Texas CHL back in the late nineties, but when I moved to Oklahoma in 1999, I let it go and never really thought about it again until recently. I purchased an XD(M) in .40 S&W, and applied for my Oklahoma CWL several weeks ago. It arrived today (for anybody waiting for their OK card, OSBI charged my credit card 10/12, and the license arrived at the SO today, 43 days later).
Took my kids to get a haircut for me and my 4-year-old boy, went to the bank, grocery store, and gas station, all uneventfully. As someone who has carried legally before, this wasn't all new, but brought back memories of when it was. As much as I try to be aware (especially when the kiddos are with me), having the pistol on my hip heightens it even more. Also, walking in to a bank carrying a gun just felt weird. My bank in Texas was posted, so that was entirely new.
Anyway, just thought I'd share. I continue to appreciate all I learn in this community.
