    Hello from Western NY

    Hi everyone, my name is Jim Ryan. I just found this board and it's a great resource.
    I have personally been carrying concealed for 25 years. I wish there were sources of info available like this, back in the day.

    I have been manufacturing Horsehide Holsters for a few years now, but my original background was in the firearms manufacturing business. Besides being heavily involved in rifle building, I spent a lot of time in the CL3 community manufacturing and designing suppressors. I love still being involved in the firearms industry, though with out all the extra stress, lol.

    I am currently in Western NY, between Buffalo and Rochester, but will most likely be relocating in the fall to Myrtle Beach, SC.

    I'm looking forward to being active on the boards and learning and sharing with others.

    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.

    Welcome from Southwestern Virginia. A move to Myrtle Beach or any place SC would be an improvement over your current location!
