Finally received my CHL.

#1

Post by Fawbis » Wed Feb 27, 2013 6:38 pm

After a grueling 43 days I'm proud to say I'm now licensed to carry a concealed weapon. Unfortunately, I'm a student at UT and won't be able to carry 24/7. Let's hope we get the Campus Protection Act passed this session. Now, to do my first Wally Walk...of sorts.

Does everybody carry +1? I've been doing 15+1 in my Glock 19. Is that normal? Or wrong?

That is the way to go. If you don't have one ready in the pipe, it won't do you much good when needed most!
