Yes, there are concealed carriers in California, much to the chagrin of most of Sacramento. Get far enough away from the coast and you start to find counties that you’d have a hard time distinguishing — culturally and politically — from Arizona or Nevada. Not to mention chief law enforcement officers for whom “may issue” means shall issue for law-abiding residents.
Mark is apparently one of those. His EDC of choice: the solid, reliable SIG Sauer P938 along with a few extra mags. Can’t argue with that.
