Hi. I took one of the first CCW courses when it became law in Missouri, and never turned in the paperwork because for my purposes being able to have a piece in the car was good enough. A couple of months ago an instructor did the course with the proceeds going to charity, so it took it again and this time got the card.

I wear a suit and tie every day, which makes it pretty easy to carry concealed, but I'm just not comfortable carrying. By that I mean physically (not mentally) comfortable. If I found a pistol and a simple rig that I wouldn't notice I might be inclined to carry regularly, but, again, for my purposes a clip-on holster under my coat, when I go into situations that may require it, seems to suffice. I have several pocket knives that would be illegal to carry without CCW, and it is very nice to be able to carry the pocket knife of my choice without worrying about breaking the law.

Other than that I have been hunting and around firearms since I was a very small boy. I'm a husband, a father, a veteran, and a patriot who believes that the 2nd amendment is the anchor for all the rest of them and for our freedom in general. I am a lifetime NRA member, and shoot at least once a month even if its only clay-birds.

I mainly joined because I was doing some google searches and several of the threads came up. Subsequently I made a discovery that I wanted to share with the board...which I will do immediately.

Lawrence isn't part of Kansas anyway...

At your age a gunfight is the only fight you'll be having!

I don't believe there is such thing as a knife "fight"...the way I learned it anyway.

What's the average range of a defensive engagement anyway?

Go Cards, and go republican controlled Jefferson City! As I read the threads from other states I count myself lucky to live in a sane state.
