    Ohioan, new to cc!

    Hi all,

    I am new here, have made a couple posts but though I should introduce myself appropriately here. I'm a 30'sh guy from Ohio, and just finished the cc class and got my paperwork done and picked up my permit last week. Carried for the first time on Saturday and it felt far more natural than I expected, oddly.

    I am in the process of spending a rediculous amount of money on a holster and belt for my Springfield 1911 .45, which I would like to make my primary carry rather than a j frame I bought originally for this. I've been shooting the .45 since my young teens, and the muscle memory I have built up is too valuable to abandon for any other gun (or at least that is my rationalization presently). That, and I love the gun dearly.

    I do not fear for my safety so much as for that of my family. Two small kids and a wife along with me, my situational awareness has been screaming at me on a regular basis that I simply cannot protect them while at a park or restaurant without a gun. A good friend recently asked if I wanted to go to the cc class with him, and it was the push I needed to get it done. I will be carrying anywhere I legally can from now on, without doubt.

    This community struck me as one of the most rational, wise, well balanced I have come across in the world of guns and self defense. I've been lurking and reading heavily to educate myself, and you have all been a great help to me! Thank you very much for your considered opinions and help!

    Welcome aboard, from a fellow Ohioan. Those Springfield 1911's make great carry guns with the right rig.
