    I don't like surprises anyhow. I'm not a police office in St. Anthony, Minnesota; so I think I can probably avoid shooting people who don't need to be shot. At least I haven't in the last 24 years of carrying. OK, I better knock on wood and do some extra practice. When you think it can't happen to you, it will.

    It was supposed to be a fill in the blank kind of funny thread. Hahahaha, sorry gents. Just something my girl mentioned when her and my family talked about throwing me a "surprise birthday party". Then my brother said "Yeah, but Nuno carries a gun" . . . end of that plan hahahaha.

    Extra cash? I thought EDC was bad but now that I have my CCW license and I've been researching my first gun purchase, gun belts, holsters, ammo, range time, etc I realize I'm not going to have any spare cash for a while lol

    LAPG makes some good ones, but their shorts need an extra inch or so on the inseam.

    i think about this one all the time.

    i don't carry iwb so mine will usually show way more than someone who does; especially if i bend over or reach for something on a higher shelf.

    ...not scrutinizing every sign as you enter a building.

    Texas has 30.06 signs for "No Concealed Carry" and 30.07 signs for "No Open Carry." If they have one but not the other, you can do the missing one.
