Get your concealed weapons permit first. Then get an old junker of a car or truck, but have good tires on it. Shop around for the cheapest glass replacement prices for your vehicle.

You sure you want this job?

You might want to know a few things first:

* The people of Maine, are heavily armed. Some have a concealed carry permit, but a whole lot of others carry their weapons in full view, everywhere they go. And they know how to use them.

* Jeffery Dahmer wasn't the only person to eat other people in the modern world, right here in the USA. He's just the one everyone heard about.

So, refer back to what Nothern Maine Land Man said. Damage to your vehicle could be the least of your problems.

Most debt collections jobs are done over the phone Armed or not, people are responsible for their debt. If you work for a collection law firm, you'll have more leverage in collecting bad debt (judgments, liens, lawsuits, wage garnishments, etc). I know people in collections and they all have office jobs. In today's economy, there should be no lack of work in this field.

I trust your tongue is firmly in your cheek with that comment. Yes, many Mainers have concealed weapons permits -- they're relatively easy to get, after all -- but "a whole lot of others" definitely do not go around with weapons in full view "everywhere they go" like some Old West cowtown. I've lived here my entire life, and the last time I saw an open carry sidearm outside a gun show or gun shop was in 1955. It's legal to carry openly, as some guy proved a few years ago in Portland, but it's vanishingly rare to see it. Now in hunting season, you'll often see a pick-up with a shotgun or rifle in the rack, but that's an entirely different situation from open carry.

Sadly, it's getting so a hunter can't even walk down the road with his weapon after a morning of hunting without some whacko calling the police all atwitter about the crazed gunman on the street.

How is that different from open carry?

Open Carry is just as the name implies; you are carrying the weapon on your person. Carry in a vehicle is different, that is transport. Open carry; 99.9% of the time refers to having a holster with either an pistole or revolver in plain sight when out in public.
