    New here - glad to have found you

    I am a Texan, working as a Correctional Officer at a Texas Prison. I am shopping for my first concealed carry weapon and licensing class. I just got a membership to Front Sight and am VERY excited about that and plan to go with my father-in-law. I have signed a petition for Texas to recognize open carry, which I really would rather not do, but I will pursue anything to increase our right to participate in our US Constitutionally recognized natural right to keep and carry weapons.

    I am also a member of USCCA and am looking forward to putting into practice so many things I have learned so far. My cup is not full and I am thirsty for knowledge on the subject.

    Hey, ya know why Texas doesn't fall off into the Gulf of Mexico? Because Oklahoma sucks!

    Why do the license plates in Oklahoma say "Oklahoma is OK"? Because no one in the state could spell "mediocre."

    Zing!
