Tomorrow is 1 week

Well tomorrow is one week from when I filed my paperwork. I am going to get very impatient by the time my permit arrives in the mail. I really just want to start carrying now, but I don’t want to get in trouble. I do wear it around my house to get used to carrying it, but it is hard to remember that I am not allowed to go out in public with my gun on. I have been reading how long some people have had to wait on a Tennessee CCL forum, and the average wait time is about 5 weeks. I am hoping that since I am in Nashville, it will be on the low side of the spectrum, but I guess that is to be seen.

I did go out to the range on Saturday and put about 200 rounds into paper. I am really getting to the point of shooting very consistently. I do tend to shoot a little low and to the left of where I am aiming, but I do so regularly. I either need to change my stance some, or just aim a touch high and to the right.

I should be picking up my Glock 27 on Friday. I am really looking forward to giving it some range time. It is a sub compact, so it will take some getting used to.

I am at Portland Brew right now, and it is crowded with very loud people. Not exactly my idea of a nice evening at the coffee shop. Well so far none of my crew has arrived yet, so I guess it is back to surfing the net.

My holster arrived today

My holster came today. I am wearing it around the house to get used to it, and it is more comfortable then I thought that it would be. I will try to snap some pictures and post them in the next little bit.

All done

Well all of my paperwork has been filed, fingerprints taken, and money paid. Now all that I have to do is wait for 3 – 5 weeks or so and check the mailbox with vigor.

Today is the day

I go to file my paperwork at 1:00 today. I am excited.

I also ordered my holster for daily carry yesterday. I went with this one.

It is a Comp-Tac MTAC Minotaur. It is designed so that you can wear it under a tucked in shirt, or outside of a tucked shirt. I felt that gives some of the best flexibility depending on where I will be carrying. One thing I found really funny about this, is that will all of the internet research, where is the factory for these holsters? About 7 miles from my house in Texas. Every day the world proves to be smaller and smaller.

I passed

Well I had my CCL class yesterday. I passed with top marks. I was planning on heading to the DMV tomorrow to do my paperwork, but forgot that it is President’s day, so I will have to go on Tuesday. I fill out the papers, pay my money, go get fingerprinted, and should then get my card within 90 days after that. This will give me time to find a good concealable holster as well as get proper ammunition for day to day carry. I have been doing LOTS of reading on all of these subjects online, and I have my choices narrowed down on all accounts. It has been a great experience. I feel like I have been learning so much on all of these different subjects. Well pretty much I am in the waiting game portion of the whole process. Good times.
