I've heard it said that if carrying a weapon makes you feel six inches taller and covered with hair, to put the weapon away. That's good advice too.

Note on Training

Dunno where you live but in Missouri, there are good CCW teachers in most parts of the state, some on their own and open to individual work by the hour..I really like having a pro standing there, yelling "finger off the trigger!" and pointing out the details of presentation, target acquisition, reloading, assessing the area, etc.....the price is not so bad, id look for a guy like that, might help to feel a bit more "ready"

I am new to this forum, but, a veteran to handling weapons. All of the preparation in the world will not ready one for the aftermath of taking a life. I believe a weapon should be used as an absolute last resort! I think chance favors the prepared mind. Also, if you are depending on a handgun to protect your life, DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE USE CHEAP AMMO!!! You may get what you PAY for!!!

Always good to see another person begin to ccw. Practice often and be realistic about your carry options. Also realize that a one gun solution doesn't exist for most of us.
