    New to CCP, and to site

    Hello. I joined this site to do research before I "pull the trigger" on getting my CCP. I am the father of two young girls (5yrs and 2yrs). I have mild Cerebral Palsy, affecting my back and legs, and I walk with a classic scissors gate. After more than 40 years of abusing my knees, I have recently gotten a wheelchair for getting any real distance from a seat. I began considering a CCP when I first got the chair, as I feel more vulnerable in it than I ever did before. I have a responsibility to protect my wife and children. There are many things to consider when carrying, and I want to practice due diligence so that I know what I need to before I step into this agreement.

    Any information or advice will be welcome.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! You'll find lots of useful information on this site. There's even a thread from a few moths ago about carrying while wheelchair bound.

    Never challenge an old man, because if you lose, you’ve lost to an old man, and if you win, so what?
