yesterday, one son finished his appointment, processing, for his CC permit. In a 'couple o' weeks' the mailman should be bringing an important envelope. It is a satisfying feeling knowing that. :biggrin2:

Now to work on another son, which will be more of a challenge. But at first conversation, he is seemingly willing. I just need to continue the nagging there until it comes to bear fruit.:wink:

I feel your pain,

really! I dread the thought of one of my sons being some imbecilic wastebag's victim! I am not sure, were that to happen, that I could contain myself through the long, arduous, prosecution process. I can only imagine the incredible agony of that.

I'm with you, when I'm a dad I am going to make sure my children grow up around, and are comfortable (and safe!) with firearms.

My mom's favorite line is "only badguys need guns". She doesnt grasp the concept that those bad guys intend on useing the guns on SOMEONE!

Good deal carry ok

I had my daughter taking her CC course even before she was old enough to get it. When she turned 21 eight months later, she was ready to send it in. I thank God my whole family now conceals.

I look forward to the day I can say that, hopefully.

Most of my family has or has had CCP, Even Grandma for awhile, She is in assisted living now. I have a hard time getting my wife to get hers, she did by a pistol 2 weeks ago (all her own) I had nothing to do with it except handing the guy the money. She has shot it but wasnt all that thrilled about it. She works in Child Protective Services in South Texas. I think she needs it and most of her co-workers carry. Baby steps I guess right now she is in training till April. Hope she gets it before she start traveling.

My father first took me shooting when I was about seven and bought me my first 22 when I was ten. However, I can't convince him to get his CC permit for the life of me.

Our youngest son will be CC'ing in a few months when he turns 21. I encouraged him to fly to Florida for the day to apply for his permit in person so he can get it quicker. One of my Christmas present to him is an NRA Basic Pistol and CC courses. Hubby and I were sorry I did not booked him at Armed Missouri in Mt. Sterling because the crowd that I got for him for instructors are paranoid guys (his word, not mine) and by Christmas he was starting to hate having to go there. I hope when he come home to qualify for his sharpshooting exam for the army, we can get him to go with us for our NRA Personal Protection for the Home course which will coincide at the time when he is here.

Congrats. Now, if I can only get my daughter working on hers. They way my granddauther is going, I think she'll have one before my daughter. Granddaughter loves to go shooting with me, wants to be able to defend herself, etc.

Be patient...it will happen one day, sooner than you think even if you do not believe in miracles.:yup:things happens in its own good time. You can't force spring to come in the middle of winter...
