    Welcome aboard, my first suggestion would be to educate and acquaint yourself with the legal aspects of carrying. Feel free to check out the link in my signature to find access to lots of valuable info. Some is state specific but most is not.
    Use the search function, and feel free to ask questions. There are lot's of very knowledgeable people onboard.

    Don't worry, there will be other opportunities to meet up.

    Watch this,

    it will serve you well, then go spend some time in the stickies. Find the carry chart, MSP # 86, and read malignity's open carry guide thread sticky. Oh, and dont be afraid to OC, its a tremendous advantage to you, both tactically, and for you politically, OC is the best way to preserve and promote your rights. Many of us have been thanked by folks at random for openly carrying.

    Wow that was a good read and very informative.. What blew me away was the grocery store or restaurants that serve alcohol being prohibited? I have been CC in places like applebees red robin and local grocery stores and that is illegal? Oh my? Oops!
    Also where can I get some of the informational cards to carry? Thanks a lot

    You have a CPL now so you dobnt have to worry about the grocery store selling alcohol anymore, CC and OC are both fine. You cant CC in a place that makes most of its income from alcohol sales. When in doubt, rock it out.
