    Finally came in the mail. Seeing as I live in FL i guess its not that big of a deal they give ccp's to damn near anyone haha. It was a bit different walking around in public for the first time armed but the jitters were gone in a second.

    Hey, I have a spare tire in my car. Doesn't mean I want to have a flat. CC is the same thing, just higher stakes.

    Congratulations! I picked my CCW permit up yesterday. It's a grave responsibility, but awfully reassuring.

    Thanks everyone. Indeed the responsibility is great. How ever I probably wouldn't have even gotten it if the world wasn't going so frackin crazy. But unfortunately it is and with a collapsing economy will only beget robberies and violence. so i just didnt wanna get caught with my pants down so to speak

    Nice what do you plan on getting for your CCW? Im in the process of shrinking down a dan wesson .357 to make it manageable snub barrel , lower profile grips ect...

    But I know its only a .22LR but im really diggin my taurus pt-22 now that i got the right ammo its really performing.

    still thinking about that. i'm getting a fullsize P226 in the next few weeks, just need to order it. (12% off dealer cost too!!!!) i'm 6-5, 220, so i dont want a tiny gun that i cant get my finger through the trigger guard and my pinky/ring finger hang below the mag. with winter coming up, i'll be able to conceal a fullsize pistol easier than i would in the summer. i've been eyeballing a ruger lcp in .380 though. pretty cheap and very small.

    Yea im 6'1 210-15 so thats the only compliant i have bout my 22 is having to cram my pinky finger into my ring finger to get it to fit on the grip , although atleast the pt-22 does have a pinky rest on the clip the beretta bobcat doesnt.... but other than that it fits ok. in the winter printing wont be an issue so ill be carrying my .357 Im partial to revolvers i wouldnt want to deal with a jam in CC situation. but automatics are still cool.
