    Smile NewGuy in Kentucky

    Hey all just thought I'd break the ice with a few lines. I used to live in Detroit and moved here to South Eastern KY about 14 years ago. Just recently started carrying a firearm here in KY if it's visible it's legal. A few months ago I started looking into carrying concealed after a friend was held-up and robbed, while openly carrying himself. Not only was his money,watch,and security taken the trash also took his 1911 his father left him after passing away. I just started hunting a few years ago( really late start huh), abd have always been very into weaponry, first knife collecting, then firearms. I'll always be very into safety, and would like any advice to keep me,and my little girl safer than we are now. I'll be looking forward to the future input from all of ya, and I'll be happy to throw in my 2 cents' worth here and there also. Take it easy

    Welcome...

    from Central Florida!
    Detroit is a great place...to be FROM. Lived the first 25 years in Dearborn...close enough!

    Sounds like your friend's ordeal could be a thread all by itself!
    Was he alert to his surroundings? Pretty bold to pick a victim with a gun!

    Stay safe!

    Welcome to the forum. You'd be wise to get that concealed carry permit and not carry in view of the bad guys. Sorry to here about your friends situation and the loss of his late fathers 1911.
    The power of the future is in its ability to inspire the present.

    Welcome from a fello Kentuckian!
    There aren't a whole lot of us on this board, but there are a few.
    Take the concealed carry course asap.
    Also take a look at www.kc3.org they are the group that finally got ccw passed here in Ky back in 1996. Be sure to look at what is considered off limits here as well. There is a lot of rumor and misinformation out there as to KY law. If you ask 10 different people in this state what the law is, you will get 11 different answers.

    Out of curiosity, what has been the general publics reaction to your open carry?
