    Hello from Pittsburgh

    Obligatory new guy post. My name is James and I'm from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I went to Pitt undergrad and will be attending Pitt's Law School this coming fall. Yeah I know, laugh it up...but another pro-gun rights attorney won't hurt anything, right? My grandpa taught me to shoot when I was very young (In fact, there is still a semi-circular scar on my nose from a .223 shell casing which took a freak bounce off a wooden range post and nailed my four-year-old face) and it's been a huge part of my life ever since. I got my concealed carry permit on my 21st birthday, but never could make a habit out of carrying--mostly because of the amount of time that I spent on university property. Now that I'm out of school (temporarily) I've been carrying more frequently, so I figured I'd stop lurking in the shadows and being directed to this forum from every question that I pose to Google and start an account.

    My newest baby is a CZ 75 SP-01 Phantom in 9mm. It's mean, and a very comfortable shooter. I also have a Sigpro 2022 in .40 cal and inherited my grandfather's PPK/s (don't get excited, it's an Interarms). That's about all you need to know about me for now, but watch out for pictures and rants about my gear and stuff that I've tinkered with.

    Thanks for having me!

    Welcome from Missouri. Your right....a pro CCW lawyer is never a bad thing to have on "speed dial". I have a feeling more of them will be needed in the future.

    Thanks for being had (just couldn't resist).
