Long story short, I applied for my permit a week ago and I'm not expecting it in the next 2-3 weeks. I still haven't picked up a piece of CC, but that's not the issue today. Today's issue in the GF. She has no problem with gun in general and she says she has no problem with me getting my permit. The problem is she doesn't like the idea of me carrying all the time, claims will make her feel like she has a reason to fear for our safety if I feel the need to be armed. Granted I haven't decided how much I will exercise the rights I get from the permit, I currently am in college so I cannot carry on campus, most everywhere else is fair game (I part off campus so I could carry to and from campus if I wanted to or if I had been somewhere earlier in the day.) I might only carry to places I feel are slightly more threatening, or I might just have it readily acessable when I am in the truck and then take it with me as the situation dicatates (at least in my mind.) However chances are that I will want to carry everywhere I can or at the very least more than she will think is called for (I know some of you have the mindset you never know when and were somthing will happen and murphy's law says it will be when you are unarmed.) So my question to you guys is have you ever had to deal with a woman in regard to carry like this? Is there any advise you can offer to smooth things out? I already plan on taking her to the range and getting her more comfortable with guns, but besides that any suggestions? Cliffs: I am getting my CWP, woman doesn't like the idea of me carrying. She says it is going to make her feel like she has a reason to be worreid about our safety if i feel the need to to carry. I haven't carried yet to see how it makes me feel, but I suspect it will not make me nervous or worried, it might make me more aware of what is going on around me, but I will probably see it as feeling safer as if something comes up I have one more option open to me.
