Today I went to my first class of Conceal and Carry. It lasted from 8:00 am to 12:15 pm. The instructor read to us all the things we need to know from the Self Defense Act. We took a test at the end of the course today. I made 100% on the written test. Tomorrow we will go to a shooting range and shoot our guns. After that I will need to apply for a license to carry a firearm. They cost $100.00 which will be for five years. A ten year license costs $200.00.

I don't know if I want to carry a gun with me every where I go. I need to re-read all of the laws. There are laws for the state and federal laws. I also need to take shooting lessons at a gun range. The instructor told us we need to get an attorney on retainer just in case the worst happens.

I am reminded of the television show, Rockford Files staring James Garner. He is from Norman, Oklahoma, and a favorite of mine. I have watched many of his television shows for so many years. He is one of the best at what he does.
