I applied for my permit after having to pump gas at night when I would come in from NO airport on a late flight. there are very few gas stations that I feel safe in. I do not carry for most things but when I get gas I always have my 26 with me. I have had some uncomfortable encounters while pumping gas in this town. I now get out of the car (with my glock 26 IWB) lock the car with windows up while pumping gas. I see people walking into the store with keys on the seat and the door open all the time in town. It makes me miss NJ where I grew up (they dot allow self serve so you do not have to leave the car)
