    New female from the Pacific Northwest

    I'm new from the Pacific Northwest. I'm taking my CWP class this weekend. I'm pretty excited about it but also very nervous. My fiance has been carrying for a long time and has been helping me out alot. I didn't grow up around guns or been around them till I met my fiance. Its important to me to be able to defend my self and that's why I want to get my CWP. Also any advice on a great way for women to carry ( other than a purse ), or advice in general would be great!

    Welcome from Michigan!
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
    Train hard, live easy.

    Welcome! Best advice as an instructor I can give you is to write down any questions you have before you get to your class. Classes have a way of rolling along and you will be in full information absorption mode so you may forget your questions if you don't write them down. Other than that, have fun, enjoy the class and be safe.

    Welcome from the peninsula, and welcome to the world of firearms in general; there's always room for one more responsibly armed citizen. It's great to hear that you're starting off with classes and Washington might not be THE best state for gun owners but it's a pretty good one.
