    Helolo from Kansas City!

    Howdy all!
    Just stopped in to introduce myself.
    I placed a post on needing concealed carry advice, and was directed here by one of your fabulous members!

    I am a 41 yr old gal. Taking my CCW class this weekend! (yay for me!)

    Most of my time is spent in the KC metro area. However, I am a Rodeo Photographer by trade, so I do a lot of long haul and nighttime driving in rural areas throughout the midwest and southwest.
    I also am an avid camper who is taking her 11 yr old son out to photograph Ghost Towns in New Mexico/Colorado this summer. We are very active with Boy Scouts.
    I intended to do a lot of open carry in these extremely rural areas, but am getting the CCW just in case.
    Face it, a female traveling alone with a young boy in the middle of nowhere can have its issues.
    I have had incidents with "well meaning" guys before, and no longer do I have the physical ability to fight them off with my bare hands! getting older stinks!
    I may be the "son" my daddy never had, but I am not stupid to my looks, size and physical ability.

    Plus, some of the areas I am going to be in have some serious Mountain Lion/Bear issues. And I know my luck. I will find a big kitty in one of these ghost towns!

    I also have the uncanny ability to find the absolute worst part of town whenever I travel!

    I currently own a S&W 915, a Browning Hi-Power, a Savage 7mm-08, a Mossberg 500 A, and a Winchester 74.
    I come from a hunting family. So, I am still relatively new to the handgunning aspect.
    Have had the S&W for years, and am pretty good with it, but it is not a concealment gun for me.
    But, I am ready to learn, and will read any advice anyone gives.

    Have a great day!

    My wife is from your neck of the woods... I only wish she shared your appreciation for defensive means!

    You'll find this forum is filled with some of the web's friendliest, knowledgeable, and helpful people. Start reading and searching and you'll usually find more than you ever wanted to know on a subject. From the sounds of things, differing state laws will be your biggest headache. Study up, get up to date before each trip, and hopefully Murphy will leave you alone.

    Welcome!

    Welcome from South Carolina....
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Welcome from KC!

    As someone who also travels a lot, let me recommend Handgunlaw.us as a great resource to brush up on the carry laws of any place you're going to travel to. It has saved my butt more times than I care to think about. The MO CCW will cover you just about anywhere you need to go.
