    Howdy from Maine!

    Howdy, been lurking for a couple few months and finally(!) registered.

    Three months ago I was pretty anti gun carry, outside of a Mossberg 500 pistol grip for homeland security. Then I had my wakeup call. Received my CCW from the City of Portland about a month ago and started carrying IMMEDIATELY. Hopefully in 3 weeks time I'll be very happy member of my local rod and gun club.

    Thanks to DC.com I had plenty of useful info to make purchasing/carrying/cleaning a lot easier. Summer carry is a IWB, with a Glock 26 (and a kholster), and a Taurus TCP (with a Mr. Softy) for really hot days. Winter carry will be the CZ P-07 (love that gun) or Glock 22, still looking for holsters for them and leaning towards high ride OWB belt holsters.

    Thanks again!

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    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.

    I live in Maine as well, welcome! I say I live in Maine, because those that are born and raised here introduce me as "From Away". I was born and raised on the west coast.
