    Welcome from Michigan.
    (1) It took me about a month to really get comfertable with carrying.
    (2) I have just always thought that everyone should carry and that is why I started carrying.
    (3) I have yet to be in a position where I needed it. There was a few times at work when I wished I had it but still didn't need it.
    (4) Never had that feeling.

    Welcome from Kentucky!

    When you first carried, did it seem uncomfortable? If so, how long does it take to get used to that feeling?

    What made you decide to carry concealed?

    Have you ever been in a situation where you thought "Thank God I have my gun"?

    Have you ever been in a situation where you wished that you weren't carrying

    1. Yes, very uncomfortable at first. But for me personally it didn't take long to get used to it, maybe about a month. Now I feel naked without it, it's just become a part of my everyday carry items much like a wallet, cell phone, or keys. And god forbid I leave the house without it.

    2. It was something that I'd always wanted to do, so I just made myself go to the gun store and sign-up for the class and I am so glad I did.

    3. Not so far, but I have only had my CCDW since August of last year.

    4. Absolutely not!
