My wife comes from a hunting family, so she is very familiar with guns of all sorts. When I met her she had an old police special .38 her dad left her and a little tiny semi auto .25. I had a good arsenal my self from my hunting background. Back in the 80's I lived in Crescent City in Del Norte county and hadCCW for about 3 yrs.
To make a short story long, One day I was cleaning all the household guns and thought about getting a CCW here. I started digging around on the net and found thatitwas out of the question, but I did find this site in my search. The first time I carried, she said, "thats stupid carrying a unloaded gun." I told her that was the only way to carry legally. I also asked if she thought carrying loaded was stupid. She said "of course not, that makes sense." Now she always checks to make sure I use my booksafe when we are on the road. I suppose she has resigned herself to the fact I'm going to UOC.
