This past Monday I was surprised that I got my handgun carrying permit in the mail. With so many people requesting permits, I figured it would take longer to get it. I was waiting about a month and a half. I went to Freedom Firearms in Fort Wayne the next day to scope out a purchase. I looked at a few handguns and decided on a full-size Ruger SR9 Series 9mm handgun. I had experience with a Baretta 9mm in basic training, because that is what MP’s use. Most magazine-fed handguns are similar to operate and I found the Ruger easy to handle. It came with a case, lock, two magazines, and a manual. I bought a belt holster and 20 rounds as well. The magazines hold 17 rounds each!
I have yet to get out to fire it on a range, but the business gave me a voucher for a free hour on their range. I will definitely use that some day here in the near future to adjust the sights and get a feel for the power of the weapon.
Getting this gun will able me to work more accounts at work. I will be open to work at different places throughout the week and give me more variety. More high-risk accounts would include liquor stores and gas stations. I won’t be on these accounts until the week of August 18th, because they have already made the schedule out for next week.
Next week, I will be training at an outdoor mall. Apparently they have been having trouble at Victoria Secret late at night due to vandals. VS is trying to become unionized, and some people don’t agree with that and break windows on the store. This is the very reason I got hired. The security officer who was on this account on that particular night either didn’t see it happen, or just let it happen and he got fired.
Anyway, the Castleman Callant is now packing heat…look out.
