    Hello from Wisconsin

    I have been thinking about carrying for some time now and after months of looking into some forums, this one has been the most informative and friendly. I just received my CCL and am thinking about my first carry gun. So thanks for the sharing and I appreciate the info!

    I think a great gun for the upcoming summer is the Ruger LCP, and any small frame revolver. I also carry a Springfield XD Sub Compact but that does require a few more clothes then summer months usually allow.

    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.
