    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it WILL happen- especially with open-carry. But it has happened, to a guy that bent over in a store. Someone called the cops after she ran out screaming, and I for one would HATE to be that guy.

    Ha ha, its time we stand up and quit being afraid. So what if someone gets scared. Let the liberal sissys get scared. Who gives a flying flip. I would just laugh outloud at them and go about my business. Its time to set the records straight. A right that goes un exercised is quickly lost. Let them scream and cry all they want. God I hate liberals.

    I'm with ya on that one Dan :thumbsup:. Worse case scenario, tell them to call 911 and report a man with a gun. Stand there calmly and wait to present your permit to whatever LEO shows up. As long as it's not posted or you haven't been verbally told by management, you've broken no law.

    I understand what you're saying but I'm with DD. I'll be dayumed if I'll bend over and kiss the arse of some liberal sissy who gets scared because I choose to exercise my 2nd Ammendment Rights. Let them go running off into the night screaming.

    In Tn your permit covers open or concealed,I prefer concealed as dont want any hassles or anyone to know im armed,often carry mine concealed on a belt openly just disguised says Bushnell on the top flap so all is covered and unsuspected.Or IWB under shirttail 5 oclock over wallet.
    Keep the cannons in the truck im 132 pds sopping wet,have peashooters all over the place,reach with either hand front or back.Most can be placed into action and under 3 sec have an empty pistol,dont carry spare mags just pull another peashooter.
    If printing is an issue either in your mind or laws elsewhere consider a smaller pistol,I prefer peashooters of yesteryear or steel as thin and small and can control.Recoil not really much of an issue,longer barrel 32 acp say 3 .5 in puts out as much as any short 380 or 38 snubby with non +P ammo.
    No restrictions as what to use unlike other states 22 cal can be used,I used a Taurus pt22.

    If they would just pass open carry in Florida, I would strap on 4-5 1911s at a time and a few large hunting knives and walk the friggin streets. Piss on the liberals and their whinny a$$ baby whimpy scared selves. I am sick of hearing about it.

    Now this hurts.

    As I believe I mentioned, my wife outshot me on the qualification. It was raining buckets, she had a 38 snubby, and she missed one out of 48, wheras I missed four.
    That was bad enough.

    Yesterday, the owner of the school sent us a thank you card and wished us the best in the future -
    And closed it with:
    "And Judy, you ROCKED on the range!!"

    I still say it was raining harder on me than it was on her -

    Indeed.

    He must have figured I needed an extra dose of humility.

    I'm happy that I live in a 'shall issue' state. 25$ and show my DD214 discharge paper to the Sheriff and it's a handshake and here's your permit.

    Just love living in the wild west :)

    Not only can my wife "SMOKE" me on the range, she can out shoot most men using their own firearm. (Long gun or Handgun)

    I absolutely LOVE IT!!!! Especially, after the guy she has just humbled tells me I'm a lucky man and he sure wouldn't want to be the BG that pisses her off. :D

    One of the most rewarding things we do together now is participating in WOT events & CWP classes as RSOs & trigger coaches. I can't tell you how good it feels when she & I take in experienced or AG liberals and turn them into a root'n, toot'n, shoot'n, gun luv'n CWP holder.

    I'm serious when I say the "conversion" from a fearful, angry AG'er to a calm, confident PG'er is something to behold. It excites me & my wife a great deal when a AG'er suddenly "sees the light".

    Over the past few years I have even seen several of these AG leftist libs even come over to the REAL "conversion" and begin "Living in the LIGHT".

    That really gives us a charge! It's amazing that the path to someones "deliverance" from the EVIL begins when they pick up & use the very thing the "left" tells them is evil. :)

    It's so great to see GOD use something like shooting & firearms to actually bring somebody to Christ.

    They USED to accept a DD214 here also, but those days are gone; the Sheriff no longer issues; it is the Highway Patroll.

    Still waiting on the permit -

    But have found a couple of long jackets that will cover the hip holster well for cool weather carry -
    Been concerned about hot weather, though -
    Figured some oversized short sleeved shirts worn untucked would fill the bill, but I am a pretty good sized guy who normally wears X or even 2X, so getting a shirt oversized enough to do this is problematic.

    Saturday, we hit K-mart in Clarksville.
    There in the mens department was a close-out rack of summer shirts; hawiian style button type, and some regular color patterns too.
    $20 shirts for $2.89 each, the sign said.
    I found one that I liked in 3X, and six more that I liked in 4X!
    On the way to the check out, the PA announced the blue-light special I had just picked through - the sign was correct! I bought PERFECT concealment shirts, good looking, $140 bucks worth for less than $21!!

    Now all I need is that little plastic card - - -

    That's the way I do it Terry. For summer wear it's just a shirt that is at least 1 size to large. Been wearing the Hawaiian shirts, but have decided to go with the Guayabera style shirts. To many folks CCW now days, and the Hawaiian shirts scream CCW!
