Pistol must be concealed at all times. That's the deal.

Yeah needs to be concealed unless it's private property and you have permission to have in on your waist (in plain sight)

But yeah, like cashtown said, generally it needs to be concealed. During the summer months you can get away with concealing something as long as you've got the right set up and a gun that is small/slim.

We took our classes up in OK, but never had the chance to finish the paperwork before we moved down here. It's definitely on our list of "things to do" and I already have a really nice conceal-carry purse

Scootertrash is on point with his posts!!

I have my CHL and I carry everyday. I have never pulled it out nor do I ever want the need to do so, but If I ever do have to pull it out, I will to protect myself and family. I got my CHL because of my job and having different people in my car all day.

nothing macho about teaching thugs your not gonna take the fear today, self preservation should be high on your list of things to do and care about, refuse to be a victim in todays world, protect yourself.
i know there are dangerous people out there, and i guess if you have to deal with them often then it's a good idea to have a gun for protection, but to me it seems like running around with a fireax or a defribbilator because there are fires and heart attacks out there, but i guess that would be more socially conscious than the primary concern of self preservation that comes with carrying a gun.

I quarantee you, there will come a time that you wish you had it. Taking the course makes you aware of when and where you can use CH. The course will help prevent a mistake and will educate you on the what you thought you could get away with. Brings a lot of situations into perspective.
I say get it.

You NEVER know when/where someone is going to try to jack you. Look at all those people that were getting robbed and kidnapped walking into their own houses in Sugarland.

you never know when a fire will break out..
or when someone will have a heart attack..
both are probably just as common, and surely as deadly as being robbed.:dontknow:

my thoughts on the CHL are....

for women, it's a good idea I think....allows them to level the playing field when they are out alone

for men, it's just a macho thing....there is no situation that a gun is really going to help with out in public, just turn and run or give them what they want then turn and run.

(having a gun at home is a whole different thing)


Belive me, I have first hand experience with the gun and macho thing...


I've had a gun pulled on me twice for no good reason by two CHL holders. Both times were over road rage type deals where they got cause I honked my horn or passed them and then they pulled a gun and showed it to me as if to say "look what I have don't mess with me". Both times I called 911 and turned them in to the police. The first time, I was instructed to follow at a safe distance until the police could catch up with the guy which they did. This guy had 3 loaded handguns in his truck. That was about 5 years ago. This guy lost his 3 handguns as well as his CHL, was given probation and will not be allowed to get his CHL again. He also had to write me and my family (my wife and son) a formal apology letter which was mailed to us by the DA.

The most recent time was a few months ago and it was a guy who lives in my neighborhood. I was unable to keep up with him in traffic and the police drove past him not realizing it was him on their way to the "area" where it happened. They said that since they didn't catch him right then that there wasn't much they could do but take a report.

That is true, you never know whats going to happen (breaking a leg, getting a flat tire.etc.etc. etc.) But we are talking about if you should get a CHL or not, as F'ed up as this world is now a days, I would say get it and protect yourself.

And if you want to keep a fire extingushier(SP) around you incase of a fire, then I applaud you for that too

Ok i selected the worng one on the poll:BangHead:, I have never had to use/show my weapon.

In today's spciety like mentioned above the chances that you will need it are decenlty high and the odds are stacked against you even if you have one.

Problem is that most of the CHL licensee's can not use their weapon effectively anyway. The weapon must be concealed at all times and 9 times out of 10 if you need by the time you realize you need it you can not get it fast enough becasue you a scared and are not efficent at drawing your weapon. for the ones that can get it out to "use" even less of them can accuratley shoot a target. :eh:

I dont live in a world of fear but I have seen the worst in people and know that it doesnt take much to push someone over the edge causing them to do something they might regret.

My CHL is for my protection and the protection of my Family for no one else. So if you want the added security then I say get one.

I say get it. if you don't want to carry it don't and the times you think it might be best you can carry legally =)

I carried illegally for years.....before getting caught. UCW is a misdemeanor but it's no fun serving a year of probation. Back then I think I mostly did it because I thought it was cool and I was always telling myself "it's for my protection".....more than likely it's not going to help you in any situation where you might need it, by the time you need it some a-hole is already going to have a gun drawn on you or something and then what you're going to very sneakily reach into the back of your pants or wherever and pull yours on him.....yeah right.

Carrying is plain and simply a macho thing unless you live in a hood where you're getting mugged 3 times a week. For women, like I said before, it levels the playing field.


Maybe I'm just getting old.....LOL. I'll have guns at the house to protect my home, family, property........and if my wife wants to get her CHL, I'm okay with that......

I just think its foolish for 1/2 the people that get their CHL....its like they are just doing it because they can or because they think its trendy.
