Everybody has a first time. You know what I mean. You might start to perspire. Perhaps you develop a nervous tick. Everyone I know is, at the very, least anxious their first time. And if we’re all honest with ourselves, there’s probably more than a bit of outright fear bordering on panic. That’s right: I’m talking about the first time you go out in public carrying a concealed firearm.
It’s OK. All of those reactions are perfectly normal. And if anyone tells you they didn’t have any trepidation their first time, they’re probably fibbing. Not only is some healthy apprehension expected, but it's also probably a good thing. After all, you’re venturing out into the world carrying a lethal weapon. Of course, you have no intention or desire to use it. It’s there in case you experience that really bad day that far too many others have encountered. The world can be an ugly place.
