I purchased my first handgun for home defense and sport shooting. Took my CPL class in July of 2011. Never went down and applied for the permit.
An angry customer calls me in September of 2011, mad because I removed his vehicle off of his auto insurance policy per HIS REQUEST, later that day his daughter was in an accident with the vehicle, and he is being held responsible for 100% of the damages. He threatened to come up and bust out my business windows. I ran an internet search on him, found out he has had and STILL has a PPO for stalking active against him. Fast forward to that night, I am sitting out on my front porch when guess who drives by my house, TWICE...
the next day I went downtown and filed for my license, been carrying everyday since.
