    Similar to how I approached it, my first "carry" year. Not everyone gives it very much thought. I went to training, shot so much as to need a new barrel in my gun ... and got competent and comfortable enough with (a) my gun, (b) my ability to hit the target, (c) my ability to avoid the proverbial 3yr-old child in the background, and (d) my ability and willingness to defend myself no matter what the cost to the criminal. Then, I got the CCW/CHL. Kudos! on an intelligent approach. It's not easy to come to grips with the rationale and realistic results of the decision. But, once you do then it's incumbent on you (IMO) to be well armed and well practiced, all the time.

    Sounds like you're enjoying the "quiet" life. May we all.

    Welcome from the South Eastern part of the state! Seems like we've covered alot of the same ground. I grew up near Detroit and was stationed at Camp Pendleton, now I'm in PA. Welcome to the forums!
