    I am able to carry to/from work, to/from the bank (Work bank), and on normal business activities. So what does this mean? If I'm on my way home and want to stop at the store, I must dis-arm, unload the weapon, secure it in an enclosed case or holster in the trunk. You see the grocery store is outside of my restrictions. Same if I'm at work. If I go out on a job, I can't stop at 7-11 for a cup of joe without going through the hole disarming thing. They want you to say "why bother". Meanwhile we've go Murder Capital USA 30 miles away in Baltimore. Baltimore has 1/10 of NYC population but half as many murders. You really do take your life in hands when you go down there. And are the police under any legal obligation to protect you??? NO! Their first obligation is to make it home safe. (Can't really blame them for that.)

    Wow what a rant...

    I'm impressed that you even have one at all. I used to live in MD, in fact, I lived in Baltimore. I moved from Baltimore (Brooklyn Park area) after I watched 1 of 5 gangbangers almost shoot my neighbor.

    I was eating dinner and saw the group of them strutting down the middle of the street with a dog. For some reason I just sensed that they were trouble, so I continued to watch them as they walked in front of my house. It was about this time that my neighbor rounded the corner on his way home and the gang made little effort to move, so he ended up passing by very close to them.

    There is only street parking in that area so he parked at the curb and headed for his door. I was still watching the group and could tell that the 'leader' was incensed at this flagrant disregard for his 'position'. So the guy motions to another member of the gang who pulls out a semi-auto and hands it to the 'leader' who runs over toward my neighbor.

    All I could think was "Oh my God!" I told my wife and kids to get out of the front room and I called 911. I was able to give a pretty good description because these punks just continued their strutting across the park like nothing was going on.

    I was actually surprised but the LEOs intercepted them at the next street, 4 squad cars. I guess that should tell you something about where I lived, the police just hung out there until something happened...and something apparently always did.

    So now I live in Idaho, and in a way, I kind of wish Idaho had more qualification requirements so my CWL would be accepted in more places. There is no qualification requirement here. I practice and I train on a regular basis, because when the time comes, I want to know that I will operate accordingly. The only way to do that is to 'train'. Not just going to the range and practice squeezing the trigger, I do that too, but that is only part of the program.

    Anyway, we WERE planning on moving back to MD/DC/VA area because my career path is best suited in that area. I have vowed NOT to ever move back to MD, though. I will move to VA where I actually have rights. I really hope the Supreme Court upholds the DC Appeals court decision, and settles the issue once and for all (which will actually be for the next 20-30 years or so).

    And you thought YOU were ranting.

    I have had a CCW for about 15 years. Started off in Indiana and now in Alabama. I used to just put my weapon in the car and leave it there most of the time but now am carrying most of the time except at work and school (university).

    I have a Texas CC. Have had it for a few months now. Wandering Man insists that I carry my gun all the time. I carry it in my purse and I am having trouble getting used to the extra weight.

    I've had mine for several years now. If you are thinking about getting your's can't make up your mind, take this simple test;

    1. GUN OWNER._____
    2. VICTIM._____

    CHOOSE ONE.

    Got mine almost a year ago. Conditions in the real world make protecting yourself and familiy a real necessity. Chances of something bad happening are a lot greater now than even a few years ago, so I am doing what I think I need to do to thwart an evil doer.

    No CCW in Wisconsin.

    I'm looking into getting a PI or Private Security Agent License, which will allow open carry, in most places in WI. Even then, no concealed.

    I know a guy that has a PI business. I might see if he can "hire" me, and then I can apply for the PI licensing without the background or education.

    It looks like WI and IL are the last hold outs on CCW. Every now and again, it comes up here, and gets voted down. I have no idea why. We have a bazillion hunters, but none of them want CCW? I dunno...

    Have had my Iowa permit for about a month now, it is a good feeling to know if the need ever arises you can protect yourself and those around you. Should have done it a long time ago.

    Actually, in Wisconsin there is no law that says you can't open carry. If you want to you can strap a pistol to each hip and go about your business. The only thing the police can charge you with is creating a public disturbance.

    I'm new to guns, got my XD9 5" (tactical) last week but haven't been to a range yet. The reason for the 5" was .... no CC so why go sub compact? It is manly for home protection and the range.

    When (if) WI gets CC I'll be first in line for a XD9SC.
