I apologize if this has been covered in other threads. I did a couple searches and didn't find it. I don't have a CHL and have been debating whether to get one. I realize all the benefits of having a CHL, so I'm not looking for reasons why it's good to carry concealed. But I'm wondering if it worries you at all. The government knows you have it. It's arguably a public record that may (issue still pending) result in the public knowing it. It publicly advertises you as a gun guy. That may be a good thing. If you want to rob a house, who wants to rob a house that's clearly armed? On the other hand, if you want to rob a house, you might want to case a known gun house for that vacation, then move in knowing there are guns. And if the government goons ever get to the point of chasing down private firearms, that CHL list would be a good place to start. Carrying concealed seems stealthy, which is good. Then I remember that having the CHL is far far from being stealthy. Thoughts?
