I've been a lurker for a while. :new:

I carry a 9mm Springfield XD SubCompact.

I like the outdoors, hiking, snowshoeing, rollerblading, blogging, cooking and baking :eat: etc etc....

About a year ago, I attended a dinner with a group of girlfriends. We were at the Spaghetti Factory in Trolley Square happily eating dinner when the topic the "incident" came up. It was only a few months after the shooting at Trolley Square. The topic of concealed carry was soon brought up and in defence of CC I mentioned that I had my permit. Of course one friend asked "do you have a gun on you right now?" I shyly admitted that I did (I normally don't really like everyone to know that I'm "packin'"). A few women were a little uncomfortable with this. However, most of the women said they felt safer knowing that I had a gun.

This was a time that I realized my role and how important it was that I keep on carrying. By doing so, I'm taking responsiblity for those around me. I also realized how important it is to educate others on the facts (and not myths) surrounding concealed carry and sometimes even open carry. Being a woman in the circles that I run, I feel it's extra important that I keep my facts straight, my knowledge solid and my current events up-to-date. Thus bringing me to utahconcealedcarry.com

Thank You for welcoming me and I look forward to all you have to say!

Em,

Glad to have you... :D

Keep your eye on the events topic as I am in the early stages of setting up a women's shoot.

P.S. I love cooking and baking too. :!:

Welcome. My wife has her permit, but won't carry yet. Maybe someday. Glad you found us and glad you were honest with your freinds. I bet even those that were nervous about it think highly of you and have maybe even had second thoughts.

Glad you found us! Thanks for taking a moment to introduce yourself. There are a lot of great people here and it's always nice to have another member of the fairer sex amongst us. Glad you carry, especially at Trolley Square. The wife and I went to dinner at the Spaghetti Factory last night and I carried openly. No comments, but everyone was very courteous and the food was great!

If there's anything we can help you with, please let us know, we're happy to help. Make yourself at home, stick around and post often.

P.S. If you have a moment, update your profile with a location city, it's nice to know where everyone is located (generally speaking).

Hey that story sounds familiar :shocked: Emmaishappy is my wife, and she started posting here without letting me know about it. :party3: :dancing: :ROFL: :lol3: :lolbang: :dancing: :party3:
It was really cool to have her get her permit with me when I got mine. She even got me a shot gun for my :bday:
Lucky me I found a girl who feels the same way about firearms that I feel.

Glad to have you here. It is great to see more women exercising their firearm rights and educating their peers. Good for you and keep up the good work.

Welcome to our forum, Em!! We're glad to have you join us, especially to have another lady member. We need more of those here. Thanks for introducing yourself. That was a great introduction!

It looks like you surprised your hubby. I wish my wife would surprise me like that, but although she has a CFP and carries, she's shown no interest in the forum. Ah well, I'd rather her carry and not come to the forum than come to the forum and not carry.

Post often...
