    There is a definite issue on wheter to expose yourself or not in regards to CCW. I like both points of view. I currently haven't seen any stores in my area where I shop that request no firearms. So, I guess I have some time to figure it out until I move or one posts a sign.

    Many folks don't get a CCW because they feel they will be outside the "Norm". If we can demonstrate that CCW holders are a goodly portion of the law abiding citizenry, perhaps these folks will opt to carry also.

    Its too bad that there isnt some way to know how many times that letter has been copied now. I imagine it would be quite amusing.

    Im guilty of a copy myself.

    I was given some of these a few years ago, and had a bunch printed up. I really enjoy the befuddled look on store managers faces when I hand it to them face to face. Being "bosses", they're not used to being confronted by honesty, and independence.

    I've been playing with this and decided that it would be more appropriate for each of us who wants to, should have on the card what he/she prefers to say. Here are links to MS Word files for the front and back of a business card that anyone with Word can edit as they see fit. The format is for the Avery business card template #8371

    I noticed that one of the casinos here in town recently hung a "No firearms allowed" sign at their side entrance. I do believe maybe that I will print up some of these "cards" and "tape" one on their sign, on my way into the establishment one day for vittles. I'll only have to change the name of the state.

    The average J.Q.Citizen carries concealed everywhere it's legal to carry, so, what the other establishments don't know won't hurt them.

    I got my CCW because I wanted to feel normal...



    Every one of my tools says "Be familiar with the proper use of this item" or "Read user manual before use" or some such thing... I have mechanical aptitude and have had extensive experience in an automotive and metalworking shop. Picking up any of my impact wrenches or air hammers or using my drills and saws feels natural to me... I pick up the tool and immediately know if I'm ruining a cross threaded bolt or hammering a nail into something behind the drywall...

    Before you're allowed to drive a car, you go through driver's ed. You take behind the wheel. Optionally, you even take some advanced maneuvering or inclement weather driving courses. When I first drove, it felt unusual. I would drive with my mother in the passenger seat in an open parking lot at her office on weekends. I was thirteen years old at the time... Now driving feels completely natural. I grasp for a shifter in automatic cars without looking, as I know when it's time to shift. I never roll backwards when feathering the clutch to start up hills...


    The first time I ever picked up a gun was when a buddy of mine showed his to me. He was a security guard. The gun was a Glock Model 22, .40 Cal. I was able to load rounds into the magazine and rack the slide, but I was afraid to even look really mean at the trigger for fear that it would go off. I really didn't feel comfortable holding it, so I dropped the mag, racked the slide, and handed it back to my friend.

    When I first rented a gun (Springfield XD9) and took the CCW class, I was afraid of the recoil... I flinched when it went off. I didn't limp wrist it enough to cause a failure, but I didn't have a good grip either.

    I still don't feel as comfortable with my gun as I do my car or my tools because I'm not as proficient with the gun. However, I know the rules on how it should be used and I know the basics. that alone gives me the confidence to pick it up and feel normal about holding it and firing it at the range. This is what the CCW gave me.


    I wouldn't give my tools to someone without any mechanical knowledge.
    I wouldn't let anyone drive my car who wasn't familiar with a manual shift and didn't have a license.
    Why would I trust someone with a gun who hasn't had any experience?
