    Talking Big Hello from Arizona!

    Hello! I've been trolling the forums for awhile now without registering to get a feel for the membership here. Finally started posting in the last couple of days. I really like the community atmosphere!

    I'm a 25yo male from southern Arizona. No kids, no significant other. I only have one gun right now (a Taurus PT 24/7, very pleased, owned since September 2005), but I'm going to be buying a smaller gun for CCW. Which, btw, I just took my class this past Sunday (07/09/06) and mailed my application the following day. Looking forward to keeping myself and my family safe!

    As for work, I work for a county law enforcement agency as a communications officer. Unlike a comparable job in a larger city, I am a little more in-depth into the workings of law enforcement from the first call to the response, arrest, investigation and jailing process than many others. I am also solely responsible for all criminal database inquiries and criminal history inquiries while on duty. In my office I work with LEOs, other communications officers, detectives, and corrections officers/prisoners all under the same roof. I may not be able to answer all law-related questions (not a LEO), but I can shine a lot of light on many questions from the law enforcement side if you ask! (Well, as much as I can give without compromising tactics and LE-only info. Be nice!)

    VERY glad to be here and as I said, I love the cooperative atmosphere and level of civility on this forum (e.g. "my gun is bigger than yours!"). Keep it up everybody! =O)

    Cheers.

    Well, let me be the first to say Welcome!

    Thought I would add that my in-laws live in Catalina, AZ. We go out that way once a year. Am seriously thinking about retiring out there in about 15 yrs, so I bought 10 acres near Oracle.
