    I need to go to the county jail to pick up my brand new permit. I'm so excited! My wife has not gotten her letter yet, but I'm sure that it's soon to follow. The Wal-Mart Walk is eminent!

    :rolleyes:

    That's what I keep hearing. I've got a holster that I don't hate. I will be taking notes on what I do and don't like about it so that the next one I get will be pretty close to exactly what I want. There's enough clutter around the house without piles of excess holsters. Maybe somebody should start up some group holster stash, where we donate our unused holsters so others can try them out for cheap or free. Anyhoo, I think I'd like to try building my own sometime as well.

    Attaboy! Congrats!!! Another one to the ranks. Going heels the first couple of days is a weird sensation. Enjoy!

    Nachos and root beer, go look at ammo. I got it! If all goes well, we'll run by county this evening to pick up licenses, run home to get guns and have our date night wandering around Wal-Mart.

    ...and they say romance is dead!

    :p

    Congratulations!

    May you always have a gun near to hand, and may you never need it.

    So, what are you going to stuff that 3" 586 in for carry?

    I've got a Tagua-brand full pancake that I like to wear at 4:30 OWB. It covers nicely with a light jacket or a heavier shirt. I need to get some different grips for it, as that is really the only thing that prints in the least.

    I'll try to get some pics posted. My home PC has cratered on me, and I'm struggling to get going at home along with everything else.

    As long as it's comfortable and works well that's what matters. I think a lot of that is from people buying half a dozen cheap holsters before ponying up for a good one. I had a couple cheap ones but saw the pattern and got a good holster and have been happy since.

    If I had it to do over again, I would not have gotten a thumb-break. I'm afraid that this will not be the last holster. Other than that, it is comfortable, and my draw feels pretty natural.

    When I finally broke down and paid the 63.00$ for a Galco I went home and figured out what all the cheap holsters had cost. I ended up paying something like 130.00$ trying not to spend that 60 bucks

    Again, congrats..Please go out first thing and get a copy of Concealed Handgun books. They are a real eye opener to someone who has decided to CC. What you think might be OK will land you in the courts and prison if you aren't very sure of what you are doing. Have your wife read it with you while you are waiting for her letter. You'll be glad you did.

    What, this one? It looks like there are a bunch of books about concealed carry. I'm all about learning what my legal rights are and aren't at any rate.

    I'm confused. Why do you need to go to the county jail to pick it up? It's not mailed to you? If not, why the jail?

    Is that some kind of system OK has implemented to send a message? Some kind of deterrent? "Don't use this correctly, and you'll be back here." kind of thing?

    Somebody fill me in on what I'm missing. :confused:

    Congrats though. Nachos are no longer available at any Walmart near me, they all either have a Subway or a McDonalds inside instead. Get yourself some ammo, and rent a few good movies. Regardless of the nachos, the celebratory Walmart visit is unofficial law.

    Cheese,

    OK law is sick and perverse. There's got to be some law maker laughing it up. I think that it should be a one-day deal like a drivers license. They will mail a renewal, but not an original. They have 90-days to send the letter, and I was lucky to get mine after 6.5-weeks. The paperwork says that you can pick it up at the sheriff's office, but in practice, you have to go to jail for it. Scary place that is. I'm glad I don't live there. It's a gun-free zone too!

    In KY, you submit the application at the Sheriff's Office. He then sends to State Police, after check is done they send a card to you, and your permit to the sheriff again. So you make two trips to the sheriff.

    I got mine Friday, after 91 days from the time I submitted. But they dated the card, so it really was only 88 days in their books. They have 90 to approve or deny!!

    So I am finally legal!!

    Robby,

    Congrats! I picked up my license this morning. I have not yet officially carried. I've worn my gun in the yard, but that's all so far. I am planning on putting off my Wal-Mart walk until the wife gets hers. (We're one of those cute couples that wants to do it together.) She has encouraged me to wear it to church in the morning. It looks like I'll have to wear my pin-striped suit...
