Does anyone here have a concealed carry permit? I've been really on the fence about getting mine. I'm a pretty small woman.. 5'3" and 110 pounds.. and I do feel very vulnerable when I'm alone anywhere. Walking, driving.
I am a hunter so I have shot before(I'm more a a bowhunter than gun but have shot guns).
My biggest fear with concealed carry is your gun being used against you in an incident. I do have pepper spray but have been told by many that it's easy for it to get into your own eyes and face..
I will someday soon have a dog, and I do feel that a dog is a decent deterrent from an attacker if you're walking or in your car, but A.I don't have a dog yet and when I get one, it will be a puppy so it will be awhile before it's even slightly threatening looking! And B.even when I have a dog, it obviously will not be with me at all times..
