Hello from S.E. PA.
I have been reading and learning from the forum for quite a while before joining.
I appreciate the different opinions and knowledge here.
You guys have put forth things I never even considered, like the public restroom scenario.......
I recently decided to CC.
Living near the DE state line proves to be problematic for now but I am going to get a Fl. CC license.
I travel into DE, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day.
( sometimes passing through, usually stopping for piecesparts )
I work on my own most of the time repairing equipment.
Sometimes on my belly, sometimes on a ladder or extension ladder.
Often climbing into, around, on top of machines that have the potential to dismember you or worse if you goof up.
I always considered that fact my biggest priority of staying in one piece, not BG's so much.
That is changing though.
I factories where work, I'm well known. Anominity is not possible and flying under the radar, impossible also.
This is proving to be a challange in how I carry.
I have a 3", .45 ACP that I prefer to carry.
I went with this gun because was trying to keep my ammo stock to a minimum. ( since I have also a Colt 5" 1911 home security weapon )
I liked it to begin with, but the more I shoot it the more I like it.
However, I am considering a smaller, more easily concealable weapon.
I don't think I can offer much to this forum but I appreciate the willingness of you guys to teach from your experiences.
Your input is welcome and requested.
Best regards from PA.

I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.

Welcome to the forum from South East PA also (York area). I carry a S&W M&P 9c and am very happy with it. I understand the Shield is just a tad smaller. Welcome again.

Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.
I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

Welcome from South Carolina...
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

Welcome from the Midwest!
Sounds as though you're going to have some challenges in CC at work.
Weigh all your options, the legalities and risks of carrying at your places of work.
I've heard that 'smart carry' holsters are a good option for those who must carry with deep concealment in mind.
