I just applied for my LTC, waiting for it in the mail now.
I decided to start carrying because I have had a couple instances where things could have gone very wrong. Luckly they didn't.
About a couple years ago I was threatened with a bat after I was working at a gas station and the guy didn't like a policy of the station I was enforcing. I applied for my OC permit, at this time I wasnt of age to get my LTC.
Now that I am of age to get my LTC and the line of work that I am into now requires me to be out late at night in the city, I thought that I would start to carry.
