    Newbie from Maine

    Hello everyone newbie here from Northern Maine. I just took my handgun course and will be applying for my permit but am not a carrying citizen yet. Though I did buy my first gun about a month ago or so, I have a Taurus 24/7 .40, though I wish I had been thinking a little more before I bought it and bought something a little less chunky so I will be carrying once I save up for a somewhat smaller gun, right now Im considering a CZ 75 p-01. Glad to be here and recieve any and all advice, as well as some good discussions.

    Welcome from Michigan. I too have a chunky gun that I really only carry in winter, a Glock 26. The rest of the time I carry a S@W snubbie or a Bodyguard 380. I really like a pocket gun and have to concede size and in some cases caliber. This works for me and you will find your niche soon. Enjoy the forum and use it to educate yourself and others.

    Welcome from South Carolina... Once you drink the "Chunky Gun" koolaid, you will be hooked!!! Give it up and go on over to the "Chunky Gun" darkside!!!
    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 Michigan!
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!

    Welcome from Virginia. Once you try the CZ you'll be hooked on them.
