    Brand new from central florida

    Howdy! First forum ever. I am a retired Leo from Central Florida. I am trying to adjust to retired life and after four years it is getting better. It is a process. I feel very strange without having a weapon after carrying one most of my adult life, and a little bit ill at ease. I thought it would get easier with time, but I know I would be more comfortable being able to read and talk to people of a similar mindset.

    May the Force be with you.

    Welcome from a forum-newbie in CFL as well! Don't forget that Federal Law says that as retired LE, you can concealed carry in *any* state!

    Welcome to the forum from Virginia.

    I may be misreading your post, but it sounds like you don't carry now that your retired. Not sure I understand why you don't. As a retired LEO your authorized under H.R. 218, Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
