    Hey all from VA!

    This is not my first post but I just found this part of the forum so here goes...

    I am new to firearms, having inherited several from my grandfather, and subsequently became interested in CCW, the 2nd amrndment, etc. After about a year of looking and trying different handguns, I bought a Beretta PX4 to carry and I couldn't be happier with it. Next summer I will have something smaller, but cool weather is coming so I'll wait on that for now. I have a Slideguard holster coming from HighNoon in the next couple of weeks, and I can't wait.

    I got my CCW in April and I've been carrying whenever possible ever since. Unfortunately, my employer forbids the possession of any weapons on the premises, even in the parking lot. I find this extremely offensive, but wouldn't be able to find a comparable job in this area if I quit.

    Anyway, glad to find a sane forum.

    Welcome. I'm out in Clarke Co. Great to have another Virginian. Congrats on the permit too. Now I wish I had waited to sell that pistol. Would have given you a deal on a single stack beretta 92fs (It was the compact light model no longer made). It's almost as thin as a 1911 and I kept it in excellent condition. Oh well, you're just a week too late.

    As far as the job goes...Only you can make that decision. It's a trade off. Job security or Life security. I don't personally have a wife or child to support so I made the decision to continue to secure myself. I can always get another job. I can't raise myself from the dead.

    Welcome from the Commonwealth, sailormnop. In a few months, you'll be able to turn that five year permit into a lifetime one. It's good to be a Virginian!
