    Hello from Florida

    Hi everyone! I'm a new member to the site. I've recently obtained my Florida issued CWL and carry as often as possible (typically Sig P238 or Sig 2022).

    I've lived in several states in the U.S. over the years and have had my concealed carry previously in other states. My father taught me gun safety when I was very young and gave me my first shotgun when I was 12 years old. I have a wife and 4 daughters and all of them know how to safely handle firearms. My career requires me to fly extensively, which limits my ability to carry during business trips. Additionally, my employer has a policy restricting firearms on the premises, which I have to keep in mind as well.

    My business travel has also provides me the opportunity to travel to Europe and Asia somewhat regularly, which gives me a tremendous appreciation for our incredible freedoms in the good old USA! I'm always extremely thankful to cross back through customs and be back on our home turf. Although I have not personally served in the US military, multiple family members and friends have served and I very much respect and appreciate those that have served our country and will always have close ties to the military.

    I look forward to participating on the site.

    Welcome to the forum, IsThisVegas, it's great to have you here. Different countries sure give you some perspective, don't they?
    Just cause you're paranoid, doesn't mean you're wrong....
