    Howdy from the Hawkeye State!

    BigRay here from Iowa checking in. Been (legally) for about 15 years, mostly concealed, but Iowa does allow open carry. My particular areas of interest are the special needs of carrying a handgun as someone who is also disabled. Thanks to an MVA a bit over a year ago, on good days I need to use a cane or a crutch, but the majority of the time I need a pair of crutches. I'd love to hear from other disabled people out there and how they carry.
    Great forum, great subject, great posts!

    Welcome from Central Texas!!!!
    NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.
