Well, today was the day. Took my CCW course, We were under a level 3 snow emergency, but, my mother watched my 2 boys, and it's hard to get off work. So I wasnt going to miss the class. It was a civilian course taught by an NRA Instructor / Range Sheriff, at his home. It was nice, because of the snow myself, and my fiance were the ONLY 2 there, because everyone else rescheduled. So, it was nice, and "personal". I am going to the Sheriffs office on Monday to take in my application, and certificates, and then just waiting on my permit. I'm very excited, and look forward to holding the responsibility, and exercising my right to bare arms.
