    New member in Colorado

    Boy I am glad I found this Forum, great information.

    I am very fortunate to have grownup around guns. Hunting upland game birds and small game from the age of 8 in Kansas. Spent a peace time tour in the Marine Corps ended up in Colorado.

    I have thought about getting a concealed carry permit for a long time between the crime rate and a Sheriff who wants people to be armed I finally decided apply. Today I have been waiting 5 weeks, why did I wait so long to apply?

    I have been practicing CC at home while waiting and realized the other day I need to make some changes. I normally carry my wallet in my right hip pocket, I do not believe that will work if I go to the store and expose myself reaching for my wallet.

    Welcome from another Colorado boy. Move that wallet to the other pocket. I've always carried it there so was never a problem for me.

    BTW -- I carry at 3:30 and my wallet in my right hip pocket, w/o problems.

    A carry my cash and one cc in a clip in my front left pocket. So I seldom need my wallet. However, with a little practice you can pull your wallet by pulling up the back of your cover shirt/jacket, not reaching around from the front opening.

    Works for me.

    Welcome from Montana.

    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.
