    I was thinking, there are women out there who carry sidearms, but most of the posts appear to be men. It would be interesting to hear from the ladies out there who carry and what they think about it.

    i asked my gf about carrying last night and she is pro carry but she doesn't like OC for whatever reason. she says that when she turns 21 she'll probably get her CPL and keep one hidden

    My wife wants to OC, but she doesn't have a holster for her gun yet.

    XD40 - what are your bracelets and necklace made from? At first glance when you posted the pic in your thread I thought it was spent cartridges, but now seeing it again here, I'm not so sure anymore (I'm sure it is more an issue of my screen resolution rather than my eyesight and age).

    Yes they are the brass casings, pictured are 9mm on one bracelet, .45 on the other, and the choker is also 9mm.

    There is a woman named Tess also on this board who OC's, hopefully she can come to this thread to say her thing LOL

    The OP asks what do us ladies think of carrying? For me, well that was my first time in public, andI found it liberating. For CC, I have yet to do that in public due to not having a carry lisc yet, I'll probably take a while to get used to it, but after that I may just be the same old me! Always cautious and looking around me, and a bit high strung. I will carry in PA where I do everything anyway, so don't bother to ask the old " but you live in MD and I know its hard to get a carry lisc there!". Yes, I know it's hard LOL!

    To paraphrase BobCav

    My name is Tess, and I'm an open carrier.

    Which part are you paraphrasing? That he declares himself an open carrier?Or, that he calls himself Tess?

    C'mon. Spill. Give us the dirt!

    I might believe he calls himself, "Tessio"as in caporegime to Godfather Vito Corleone. Is that what you were paraphrasing?
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Very nice.

    Here's the wife, she OCs occasionally, only with me of course.....she's still getting comfortable. Her worst fear is getting "in trouble" for OCing; still hasn't gotten rid of that irrational fear that she's doing something wrong:

    Oops sorry guys, you're right, I need to get her some eye protection.

    It's a cute and funny picture, I laugh every time I see it.

    Hi all.

    Well as is often the case, my husband got me into carrying. I used to get annoyed when he would do it, thinking he was just asking for trouble. (I was born and raised in NJ - I know,I know.) I grew up with different views than my husband who was from SE Ohio. I mean I was in the Army, I shot guns, I liked to go to the range and shoot on the weekends with friends. But, to me the thought of carrying on me at all times was kinda overkill.

    But as he got me reading some of the defensive sites and i started paying attention to all the home invasions and store shootings I kinda understood why he felt the need to protect us. Than we moved to VA and he let me carry his SIG and I felt very confident about my safety and that of our small child. After I got my own CWP we went out and bought his and hers SIGs he's got a 229 and me a 239. I love it! He's turned me into a 'gun nut' as i used to call him. I mentioned it before to Lima, but we need to get a girl's day out. Get all the OC ladies to go out for lunch or something, bet that would cause a stir :P.

    I see a lot of wife pictures. you guys need to get your wives chatting on the boards! I logged in oncewhen my husband wanted me to comment on a post and nowI check the board about 2 dozen times a day.
