And that's really it.
Years of safe handling of firearms, accurate shooting, and not putting myself into the wrong situation (getting involved with nefarious things) has made me confident in my ability to use a firearm, and to legally carry one wherever I may be. As such I carry... Always. I wake up and it's the step after putting my belt on my pants.
