Another Oregon Shooter
I just found your forum, and thought I'd stop by and pull up a chair.
Me? Former Marine, former competitive shooter. Now- just a guy more interested in keeping me and mine out of harm's way. I find my training time is more oriented in that direction these days.
I've held a CCW for a few years now in Portland, OR.
I hope to make some new friends and keep my thinking fresh-

Steve: I'm in the same boat. Have carried for years. My training has always focused on keeping me and mine out of harm's way.
