    Hello from Minnesota.

    Hi. I've had my CC permit for about 18 months now, and carry whenever I'm out and about (not allowed at work, but otherwise..), or at home. I have a KT PF9, Glock 27, and Taurus 357 that serve my conceal requirements. But I could always "need" another one.
    It took me about four months after my CC class to really decide that I DID want to take this responsibility on, and that I would do my best to do it right. If things work out, I'll never need to draw a weapon. If they don't, I plan to be ready.
    My wife doesn't "get" the CC mindset. I say it's like having home insurance, but not planning on your house burning down. The old, "Better to have a gun and not need it than....." applies, but I guess we're lucky never to have been crime victims. But I won't be getting complacent and assume that will always be the case.

    Anyway, I'm hoping to learn a lot from the folks here that have been CC'ing longer than I. Like the man said, "Share what you know, learn what you don't know." Or something to that effect.

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Rudyard Kipling

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    It's not what you go thru in life, but how well you go thru it.
