Bring on the Heat

On Saturday I took the Concealed Weapon Carry Class. I actually had a ball. Worried that I wouldn't be able to pass the shooting test, but I got 20 out of 20. Not too shabby!

The instructor made a 10 hour class fun by having a sense of humor. Thank Heavens or I would have volunteered to be the target. As it was, I was pretty sore from sitting in that chair for so long. The Attorney at the end, (4 hours of constant talking) was dry but fairly entertaining despite the lateness of the hour and the length of his briefing on Missouri Gun Law.

Today was the day to file for the permit with the County Sheriff's office. After a short wait of 3 weeks, I will be legal to carry a gun on my body at all times.

Did anyone start to perspire uncontrollably with the thought of it?!

You should all feel safer that I will be packing!


I should tell you that the picture above is the gun I bought myself. Ruger 38. I love it!

I am SO excited for you! I have been thinking what gun you should get and I have come up with two! One is the new lightweight P238 Subcompact Sig Sauer! Its SO small you could easily fit it in a purse and it weighs less than a pound! AMAZING!

The other one is a TAurus Judge! It is the perfect "DEFENSE" weapon! You can use shotgun shells or regular .45's or both together! VERY impressive!

Again! I am very proud of you! Now you need to join the NRA and your transformation of being a gun toting American will be complete! Hoorah!!! :) LOL

Amazing! Have you always wanted a gun, or is it a recent development? One of my friends here received a gun from her husband for Mother's Day. It honestly never occurred to me. Good job going after your goals!
