    Another newbie from Washington!

    Hey guys, just thought I'd introduce myself . I've been reading the forum for the past month or so but I haven't posted anything, having no wisdom to share since I don't have my permit yet. But my 21st birthday is in 32 days (June 24th) and you can bet where I'll be!

    I've been wanting to carry ever since I was 18 when I was filming a video for my old church in a shady area of Tacoma (I live in Puyallup btw). I've always known how dangerous that place can be, but spending so much time there with no ability to defend myself or those around me really opened my eyes to how unprepared I was (and am) to deal with the worst kinds of situations. Having that much time, I've already planned what system I'm going to use. My main carry gun will be a Glock 19 in a IWB hoster and when I want to conceal deeply, I'll carry a Kel-Tec P3AT in a pocket holster.

    Sorry for the life story haha.
    Ah, I can't wait!

    Welcome from South Carolina...Great choice of weapons...Train Train Train!!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
