Default I Join the Ranks of CCW Carriers!

I applied for my CCW on November 20, 2009, and since I live in a town forgotten by time, it was not mailed to me ... no ... yesterday it was personally delivered by the Chief of Police of my town. Naturally, he stopped by the morning after an incredible windstorm that knocked over my recycling barrel and Michelob bottles were strewn across the lawn ... Just lovely.

I haven't received my custom DM Bullard holster yet, so when I went out yesterday, I carried my Ruger SR9 in my purse. Not wise. While I felt just wonderful having that extra protection on me, as I walked across a dark parking lot to pick up my Chinese take-out order, all I could think of was how useless my gun was in my purse.

I can hardly wait for my holster!!! This is great!

Now go re-read the Knowledge Base article "Read this before you decide to carry!"

It can save your life!

And why do we carry?

Because, "An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity."

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Love the beer bottle story. I bet that chief will be keeping an eye on you.

Congratulations.

The funny thing is that I rarely drink - every six months or so I get a twelve-pack and kick back and relax. The bottles had been in that recycling can for a long time. It never blows over. But the scene did look so bad - like a bunch of rednecks just stood there and had a good ole time drinking it up and then cast their empty bottles down where they were standing. At least there were no cigarette butts. (Quit that ten years ago).

And thanks canebrake, I do refresh myself with the carry articles from time to time.

Good to hear you took the plunge.

Also nice to hear a woman who understand purse carry is only 20% effective. On your person is 100% available 100% of the time. None of the " OMG this could be bad, and the purse is across the room, or worse, in another room".

And, ladies with guns=HOT

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?
