I thought it perfectly reasonable to be excited about the right to protect himself. I wasnt under tge impression he had any particular dillusions about it. . I personally am without a firearm for the time being whilrmine is at the factory, and twice now ive had two scares at home that would have otherwise caused me to arm myself. You bet ill be excited to get itback! Hah.

I guess we take that for granted here. It took my wife all of ten minutes to get hers. One form and a background check. Thank God for 'Shall Issue'!

Congratulations! And welcome...
Now on to finding clever ways to hide the hardware on your person.
Get a secure holster, don't want that hitting the floor in the grocery store...

Congrats cdd, now you can shout out like Steve Martin did in the Jerk when he found his name was printed in the phone book "Look, I'm somebody"!

Yeah I know .

I remember the first week I CCed. I really had to go #2 on a roadtrip. I carefully pulled my pants down, expecting the pistol to fall into my pants (as it had done once at home when I tried this), since I was Appendix-carrying IWB. Instead, my all-metal PT92 fell forward out of its holster and clattered to the floor in the stall. Thank GOODNESS I was in Texas, as the only response I got was "Uh Oh!" and a little chuckle, hahaha.

But yeah, practice things like this***, and make sure you are actively controlling the weapon. After that, anytime I needed to use the bathroom in public I would deliberately remove it from its holster and hold it while I undid and removed my pants with my other hand. Then I would place the weapon inside the "hammock" between my knees.


***
I'm serious. Practice, or at least be VERY conscious of, getting into and out of your car, sitting down at restaurants, opening doors, reaching up to top shelves, etc. Make sure you know the kinds of movements / positions that can cause printing or exposure, or that can even cause loss of control of the weapon. I had a holster once that when I would sit or squat down, and then stand back up, the weapon would be squeezed a little ways out of the holster like toothpaste from a tube. If I wasn't careful, the next thing I'd know is it would be hanging halfway out the top of the holster. Obviously, I don't use that one anymore heh.

But again, congrats! Good to have another armed citizen around .
