I feel a lot better now that i have my permit.

I dont leave without a gun. If i could carry my ar15 everywhere i would!!

My first ccw license was in texas i too was in the very first group there to get one. Used it here in wisconsin to be in the very first group to get one. And no i will not move to illinoise to be first there too.

Yep, I have mine but can't carry to either of my jobs. A "school zone" and a university campus. Pretty much limits my options six days a week. Of course the campus is in an inner city where students are assulted often and business are robbed at gun point weekly. Yep

Kansas law negates the legal gravity of the GFSZ on CCH holders. We are even allowed to carry in schools that aren't posted.

Sorry. I'm first in line.

I waited until I was close to retirement to get my CHL because I would be able to carry very little until I retired. The company I worked for had rules about weapons on company property and many of the customers I called on had rules on weapons, some of them federal laws. I used my company pickup even on personal businness, so I was seldom not on or in company property.

Since retirement, if I'm dressed, I have my handgun on me. If I'me awake, but not dressed, it is always withing reach. I don't understand, other than reasons I gave above, why anyone would have a license & not use it. No one has a crystal ball to tell them when they should carry & when they don't need to.

If I am awake and dressed, I am carrying ON MY BODY. Period.

If I am awake, and dressed in sleeping clothes...either drawstring sweats or drawstring gym shorts in summer...I am carrying ON MY BODY.

I can't wrap my head around those who get their permit, or those who live in AZ, AK, WY, VT (you know...the FREE STATES), and choose not to carry a defensive sidearm.

After 24 years carrying every day....the defensive sidearm is flat out, a part of me. I'd no sooner leave my house without it than I would leave without my pants.

If I'm conscious, I'm armed. I have a few friends that have a CCW/P that don't carry on their person due to their jobs working in private residences, big fat no-no without permission. "Hi Mrs. Homeowner, I'm here to work on your security system...oh, and I'm armed to the teeth" isn't too good for business. They keep their weapons concealed in the van during the work days.

well, my county happens to be restricted right now so i'm somehow not able to carry. and also i work at a federal building so even if i could carry in my county.. going to work would still require me to be gunless...not defenseless tho

Me personally, i cannot see having my permit and not carrying. To each its own though, some dont feel they need it everywhere they go. The way people are in my city, i feel much better outdoors with my "security equipment".
