AND...

I am told I am not as dumb as I look, Bogie.
Graciegirl, you always make me smile!

Sounds as though you and the missus have done it right. I imagine some states have different rules and regulations about concealed carry - where and where not the pistol can be legally carried, etc.

Keep them all in the 10 ring!

You did NOT have to take the NRA course each time nor demonstrate skill each time. You just had to fill out paperwork and pay a state fee.

As I stated before, any veteran with an honorable discharge can get the CCW by payng only for fingerprints and processing fee (around $125). Very easy process in Florida. Yes, I imagine there are the application forms and the computerized background check. No classes or shooting test required.

The applications and fees are specific to each state. In Florida all I had to do was include a copy of my NY permit since that is where I came from and do the above stuff pay a fee and I got it in about 6 weeks. So if you think it an easy process I would tend to disagree.

Well I did have to drive to the Sheriff in PA twice each time I renewed. They only accept applications and issue in person. Ha.

My wife always does. Me, not as often. She is much the better shot with a pistol.

I think you are not seeing me as I am.
Like the Lady G I am quite comfortable with gun owners in The Villages. They have a lifetime of experiences handling weapons.

When I lived in Newark, I was a little more than worried.
You bring up some reasonable points but they will not get much traction in this forum. I don't believe the problem is lack of safety training but instead anyone who can fog a mirror and has the financial resourses can buy as many firearms and ammunition as they want. I was an NRA member for a number of years but could no longer support their position on firearm sales.
I personally would have no problem with gun registration. Due to lobbying we cannot even have an intelligent discussion about it.

Giving up your guns because you think that criminals
have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your
neighbors have too many kids.

When I was ready to pay for my purchases of gun powder and bullets, the cashier said, Strip down, facing me.

Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control wackos running amok, I did just as she had instructed.

When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out that she was referring to how I should place my credit card in the card reader.

I have been asked to shop elsewhere in the future.

They need to make their instructions to seniors a little clearer..

Just curious, do you have a window in your bathroom?

Just about 5 years ago, here in The Villages, a husband and wife were both retired police officers and both owned pistols. The husband, by his own admission, was a total jerk toward his wife.

One morning after a nasty argument, she just had all she could take! The husband was in the shower. She came into the bathroom and shot him three times in the stomach. He escaped through the bathroom window!

An actual standoff situation developed with SWAT team and a helicopter on Talley Ridge Drive. The lady surrendered after a few hours. The husband recuperated after a long time. He moved. She is in prison.

Moral of the story - if your wife has a pistol, it is smart to have a bathroom window.

Great to know! Thanks.

P.S. - my wife is a retired nurse. I think if she wanted to do me in, she knows lots of quiet ways to get the job done.
