I do and I carry every day. I try, more like strive to be no more than 3 steps away from one of my guns all of the time, even in the shower I can reach one without getting out of the shower.
I work for myself and open carry at work with a concealed backup. I also agree this is not a permit to shoot, just a permit to have protection at my side.
The decision to shoot is something not to be taken lightly at all.
