Longtime lurker, finally decided to join the fun so I can occasionally post. I've learned a lot using this site. I've had my CHL for roughly 3 years in Texas and have previously had permits in other states as I've moved around.
Many years ago in Indiana I had a group of teenagers/young adults waving guns at me as they passed me on the road. I was armed, but I slowed down and called the police with their license number when I got to a phone (pre-cell phone). It scared the tar out of me and was the most serious potential incident I have experienced while carrying.
When younger and not carrying I was badly beaten by a group. I didn't end up in the hospital, but I don't plan on allowing that to happen to my family or me in the future and I realize how lucky I was the injuries weren't permanent.

Welcome from Wisconsin! Incidents like you described are even more common today than what they were back then & now you have a family to protect as well as their breadwinner. It would be foolish not to protect yourself.
