I guess I'll give a little background on why I have interest in obtaining a concealed permit. I think the "sheep dog" (protecting those who choose not to carry, using a series of unlocks decide the action to take and if needed be prepared to end a horrible situation) philosophy as well as the "fire extinguisher" (better to have it and not need it, then need it and not have it) analogy are both very good representations why law abiding citizens should take advantage of their second amendment rights and treat those rights with the respect and maturity they deserve. I was at Virginia Tech when the shootings happened. I have friends that will never graduate or experience the love of life because of that day. That memory along with many other examples over the years have left a lasting impression on the importance of the right to protect your own, loved ones, as well as innocent peoples right to live when SHTF. I don't believe any number of laws will keep firearms from being obtained by bad people who seek to do bad things. I appreciate the work that out military and law enforcement does, but sadly they can't be everywhere at all times. That's why I'm a strong believer in second amendment rights as well as a persons right to carry that pistol concealed to add the element of surprise those defensive situations when your backs against the wall, there is no way to talk them down or run away, or some crazy guy has already started doing the unthinkable. I will never be out looking for a fight or anything like that, but I do feel like the right to bear arms is an important right to have. I hope that I'll never have to use this safety system and that I'll just enjoy range time for the rest of my life, since a safety system you never have to use is the best safety system. I'll end my rant on that note, I could talk about that for hours. I'm wondering where a good place to start would be for someone interested in obtaining their permit. I already have a G19 Gen4 which I love. I also have the cleaning equipment and storage equipment to go along with it. Should I invest in a good holster? I'm sure for carry I'd use an IWB so is that what I should get first to practice draw technique? I'd like to be extremely comfortable with my setup before I carry for the first time. So far my glock is completely stock. I was considering night sights on it as my only real "mod". Possibly a trigger but I've read a lot on these forums about how for a dedicated carry its a good idea to keep everything stock.
