    Hello from the Philly area

    Hey guys.

    A friend sent me here and I thought I'd check it out.

    I've had a carry permit for the last 10 years or so, but I've only been carrying everywhere, all the time since I moved to where I'm living now. I actually live between Philly and Allentown but work in the city. My tools of choice are a Glock 29 or a Glock 27.

    I got into reloading about three years ago and I'm still learning the process. I've been shooting and hunting for the better part of 10 years and teaching NRA basic pistol and personal protection in the home courses for six years, but there's always more to learn. It looks like I've got a lot of reading to do.

    I'm going to go lurk for a while until I catch up with all the threads here.

    Hey Buddy!

    I live in NE Philly. I was born in Reading so I am familiar
    with your neck of the woods. What part of Philly do you
    work in?

    Be safe.

    Actually I work in Sharon Hill near the airport, but I'm not far from the intersection of MacDade Boulevard and Chester Pike.
