I carry concealed every single day. In fact, pretty much the only time I don’t have a gun on my hip or in my pocket is when I go to the post office to mail a package. Obviously, because the post office doesn’t allow guns, I lock my gun in my car, but as soon as I get back to the car, my gun goes right back on my body.
Even though I always carry concealed, I realize not everyone does (and if you don't, you should at least make sure you're carrying another self defense tool, among these). Many people only carry occasionally, and some have their concealed carry permits simply as a form of insurance so that if they one day choose to carry, they can do it legally. Whatever your reason for having a permit, I want to help you make sure it’s always valid so you never find yourself in the position of violating the law and carrying a gun on an expired permit.
