    Yes, we have guns in Canada!

    Hello everyone,

    I am from Victoria, British Columbia. New to handguns. Recently completed a PPC course and just for the heck of it participated in CCW course that is valid in Utah and few other states. A foreign government trusts me more with the ability to carry concealed then my own.

    Opppps...sorry. Got carried away there for a second.

    Been involved in security field primarily in hospitality industry for about 12 years. Married with a 2.5 year old daughter.

    Anyway, enjoyed reading the posts and information has been quite helpful.

    Regards,

    Mirko
