Awfully nice to live in a 'shall issue' state (Florida). :cool:

After about two years of nagging my brother in law to get his permit he finally did it. He called me as he was leaving the highway patrol headquarters and he was pissed. His dob was a day off from a man who had his same name in florida. He was taken into a back room and an agent was called in to interogate him. He said he was in there for and hour and a half explaining that he had never been to florida.

Congrats.!

One thing to remember: Concealed carry means just that. Don't go showing your firearm to all your buddies, coworkers and so on.

By letting your friends know when you are carrying, they may become emboldened if a altercation should occur. If they know you are armed the situation could escalate because of THEIR actions because they may think that you've got their back.

Welcome to the world of CC.

Thanks for the advice. I'm certainly not going to be letting anybody know when I'm carrying a gun, but I do have one problem. My kids know I have my CCW now and I can just see them coming up to me in public and asking me if I'm carrying a gun. :eek:

Your words of wisdom reminded me to tell them not to do that, and I'll make sure to let them know tonight.

HAve your kids sit down with you - and seriously explain to them, why
THAT gun is none of their shouting-around business.

Prepare them... as you can not be mad at them
when they do ... they´re kiddies.

That a good point, I have not thought of that..

I had a sit-down with my kids (5 and 6 y/o) and explained to them how important it is for them not to say anything to anyone that I have a firearm with me. I also had to explain to them that they cannot talk about it with their friends at school. I nipped it in the bud first thing and I haven't had a single incident.

When my daughter was small and someone came around who frightened her, she would feel my side to be sure I was carrying. That was never a problem. Plus what Mp7 said...
