I used to have one. When I lived in Kentucky, I walked around almost always armed.
Now I live in Maryland and you pretty much need to have a REASON to get a permit - documented threats against your life or carry large amounts of cash due to work. The law is going to be challenged soon. If I could get a conceal and carry permit, I would have one. I trail ride semi-armed with a semi-illegal weapon. I bought a retractable police baton and ride with that. Oh, and I keep some wasp spray too. Better than pepper spray because it has a 60 foot shooting distance and shoots in a stream.
