    First off, love the podcast. I’ve become a regular listener in the last 5 months as I made the decision to get my permit and carry every day. In this episode, Jesse from New York asked essentially two questions and it seems to me that you all addressed only one. You answered how to avoid having you gun seen but I think the primary question was “what to do if called out by someone, what steps should a CCW’er take when it happens?” I’d appreciate any insights on this as well.

      Good catch Aaron. We’ll address this one soon.
