New poster but long time viewer. Lots of good info here.
I'm a long time hunter and gun handler. 59 years old. Veteran USN. Have my CCW permit and carry a Smith and Wesson M&P compact in 357Sig. Also have a Taurus 9mm as a back up spare. Growing up I worked several years at a Winchester shooting range.
I have also an AR-15 and several shotguns and 22's.
I'm here because I feel that the CCW permit can be a great thing but it can also be a huge liability. Much responsibility comes with the caring of a gun. I very much enjoy reading the different scenarios.
When I went to the class and got my CCW permit I was amazed that there was NO discussion of where and when you can carry your gun. Nor was there any discussion of when to use your weapon. They wanted no liability as to giving anyone advise. It was completely up to the new gun owners to figure out the rest. Many were first time gun owners! That's why I'm here reading. The information here is way more than anything I received during my class and for that I thank you.
