I find your post "funny" because I would love to CC, but two things stop me, LOL. First, my husband would flip, and second, 90% of the time I'm out of my home, I'm on military property where weapons aren't allowed :?
I thought about applying for a CC permit here in Alaska, but decided against it when I found out that having one no longer allows you to skip the NICS. That's pretty much the only reason to have it here, unless you need recipricocity when travelling, which I try not to do, since it's such a long drive to other states, not to mention having to pass through Canada, LOL.
(Everyone legal to own a gun can CC or OC in Alaska without a permit, except on prhibited properties)
I do consider myself extremely lucky that hubby and I have discovered something we both enjoy doing (shooting). Perhaps one day you will be able to convince your wife to join you on the range again.
My dad has had a CCWP for as long as I can remember, my step-mom won't touch a gun unless absolutely necessary. They live in the country, though, so my dad can just go shoot in his yard, rather than trekking to a range.
For the record, I would like to say how jealous of those of you whose wives are into guns, especially enough to carry. It is one thing to go to the range with you, and even another go pop of a few rounds from time to time, but to be interested enough to get a CCW license or OC, that is something to cherish.
I love my wife dearly, and she supports my decision to carry. Sometimes she is less than understanding when I have a negative OC experience (...well, you should expect reactions like that if you put it out there for everyone to see...) but she certainly isn't against my guns and my choice to carry them. However, she has only been to the range with me twice. The first time, she fired two rounds through my Ruger P89 9mm, and the second time she declined to shoot at all. I envy all of you whose spouse shares your passion.
