Greetings from california
Greetings to all. I registered on this forum in 2008, but have not posted before now. I did not have a CCW.
We just elected a Constitution loving Sheriff here in El Dorado County Ca. who has made obtaining a CCW possible for law abiding citizens.
I am in the process now, and should have the license within a few weeks. I found this link in my bookmarks and realized I was already a member.
I read the forum for about a hour last night and I am happy to have found this place again. Quality information, quality individuals, and a group which shares my own Patriotic sensibilities.
I have been a weapons enthusiast all my life. I have several weapons in the handgun,rifle,shotgun categories. I have always carried a pistol albeit not on my person but in a vehicle or pack etc. I have much to learn about CCW holster carry. I have trained at Gunsite (250) a couple of times, and I will be taking a tactical CCW class in Boise in 2 weeks from a very well known trainer. I believe in training.
I am primarily a 1911 guy and have 4 of them. Colt Gold Cup series 70, Kimber TLE/RL, S&W Gunsite PD (Commander size), also an HK P7 (9mm), and for CCW i have just purchased a Kimber Ultra CDP II, and a Rugar LC 9.
For defense, as they say, "I like my pistol, but I LOVE my shotgun."
That being said, I believe the rifle is the most requisite weapon for a citizen.
Thank you Gentlemen for allowing me to participate on your forum, and I look forward to learning much from you all, and perhaps being able to contribute some knowledge as well.

If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
