    What do you find the most frustrating in regard to CCW?

    I find that there seems to be a lack of books that pertain to tactics and mindset specific to Joe Q citizen. (most are focused on LEO)

    Being disarmed at school or at the local hospital, can't even have it in the car at either place...

    In Texas it is the 30.06 laws that need to be repealed. IMHO

    "In the Gravest Extreme" by Massad Ayoob.

    Somewhat dated, unless it's been revised since I got my copy back in the 80's, but still about the best ever written on the subject, or at least the best I've ever read.

    i agree that "no gun zones" are a source of frustration....

    the attitude of other cc who believe they have been commissioned to save the world and have been given a license to kill is another...

    Private establishments have the right to ask you not bring weapons inside. They own the property and they have rights as private owners to do what they wish on their property. There is a fine line between violating private property rights and rights to self defense. You have as much a right not to spend money and enter their establishments as they to to bar you from entering with a firearm. Do we really want the government to continue to encroach on our private property rights and tell us what we can and cannot do on them? I see a no firearms sign I simply take my money elsewhere.

    As far as tax payer funded public establishments like schools, libraries, parks, government buildings, etc.... they should NOT be encroaching on our right to defend ourselves.

    Having to disarm before being able to eat lunch at Chipotle in Ohio.

    The requirement in Ohio to "promptly notify" an LEO when carrying and stopped for an "official purpose".

    Besides all the places where criminals can carry but I cannot, the differences in regulations from state to state gives me a great pain in the rear.

    On the bright side, since I do not go where I cannot carry I save bundles of money I would otherwise have spent. I also rarely travel outside of my state, and when I do I go no further north than Virginia, saving even more money.

    That most people carrying a gun think they have a clue about what they are doing, but are carrying a pistol cahmber empty with the safety on, a ccw badge in their pocket and the magazine is filled as follows:

    Glazer for the first 3 rounds
    Low recoil hydrashock for the next 3
    Then alternating 1:1 of 115 grain Ball ammo with 124 grain Ranger T

    Because "If I end up in a gun fight, I want to make sure that I don't have shoot through with my first rounds. Then, once the people around realize their is a gunfight going on, I want to make sure I get the bad guy with something I can shoot rapidly.
    If I don't get him with the first or second burst, he may be behind cover, so I will use a mix of ball and JHP to go through the cover, and shoot him in a way that will stop him - because shooting to kill is wrong..."

    That...and the I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6 mentality, when with a little more education and training you could kill then CLEAN and not have to worry about 12 or 6...but it's too much trouble to learn anything...

    Um all of the above and what will come after this post. azchevy has a very good point about private property, the best we could hope for is for people to get over their fear of guns. We certainly don't need more laws.
