A CWP doesn't just cover firearms it also covers larger knives, brass knuckles, tasers, and other things you can classify as weapons. It covers you to carry these things concealed. In a lot of cases it also covers you out of state(during your class you will find out which states honor your states CWP).
My suggestion to you is TRAINING TRAINING TRAINING. A gun is pretty much useless if you have not trained for a situation. You need the physical and mental preparation. Are you certain you could kill a person in a life or death situation? The mental training is as important if not more than the physical training. You have to assume a certain mindset. Be more aware of your situations and yourself.
I would definitely start listening to Tom Gresham on the radio. You can find a local channel and times here: Gun Talk Radio : Tom Gresham's Gun Talk Radio Show : High Powered Talk Radio
You can also watch videos from Gun Talk TV here: GunTalkTV - The #1 Online Resource for Gun Training
They talk all the time about personal defense, how to carry, the laws regarding carry, what is the best gun to carry, an absolutely anything guns. There are resources to help get you the training you need as well.
And if you have any questions, just give Tom a call, or post on the Facebook page. I have posted on FB several times and thy are always quick to give answers.
