While at the gas station a few weeks ago, I noticed a woman was carrying concealed (not very well) and I inquired about what her weapon of choice was. Turns out she was an off duty officer, and after a few tense moments and idle comments, we parted ways. However, the situation got me thinking about what I would do in a similar situation.
Investing in a firearm, along with obtaining your concealed carry permit is no small investment of money or time. Purchasing the necessary accessories, cleaning kits, extra magazines, ammo, holsters, and the like all come at additional expense. Often people will look to circumvent these costs. They will do this by trimming anything they deem unnecessary.
