    I Couldn't Agree More

    I too was one of the original 500 subscribers and haven't looked back since. As the author of The Ordinary Guy Column, Tim and Maria have allowed me to focus my writings on a subject very passionate to me. Thanks to both of them and keep up the GREAT work. It has been a real joy to contribute to this magazine as it morphs into a giant...and it will morph into a giant!

    Over an hour wasted?

    No way!! In fact all work ceased as I delved voraciously into the new CCM issue that came in today's mail. More like an hour plus of decided reading pleasure.

    Yep - Tim and Maria - another good one

    George Hill once more makes me chuckle - he injects some great humor and even irony at times, into his very objective gun reviews. Oleg Volk writes on the lady's aspect of shooting and SD today. Douane Dacre's review of a ported (Gemini) SP-101 was excellent also.

    Two more profiles - which I always enjoy - facts about regular folks are always interesting. Wheelchair carry aspects - very well covered, in ''Armed Senior Citizen".

    More Suarez contribution - always stimulating to read. Tom Givens covers awareness from another slant - and we can never be slacking in that department, any of us. Mark's ''Ordinary Guy'' - always a good read. Then regular stuff also in "True Stories''.

    I have meantioned most I think but hey - just wanted to express my continued pleasure from this publication - and hope that more and more CCW folks will subscribe - the more support the better. How great it is to have ''our'' very own special magazine. Thx Tim.

    Excellent issue. I really think you have the right idea with your covers, showing a variety of people with their guns. This cover picture may the best one yet. Who has more right to defend themselves than a person in a wheelchair? Very good article on ported guns.

    Very good issue indeed! The only article I haven't read yet is the one on porting. But the overall quality of this issue is A+. And I love that the articles actually continue in the next page and I don't have to go fishing for the end of them someweher in the back of the magazine between the "You can buy cheap land in Montana" and "Real Gun Replicas" Ads.

    Ain't no such thing as cheap land in Montana.

    Welcome aboard! Have you read the profile of Yelana Pawela yet? It is very inspiring.

    I haven't read the Yelana Pawela article yet but I will read all of them a few time just to see if I didn't miss anything. I'm glad that I found this site with so much information. I can't wait until I get my Holster so I can start carrying. I got one ordered from Kevin.
