    New guy from SW Ohio

    Hi everybody,
    My name's Tom, just got my concealed carry permit about 10 hours ago!
    A little about myself? I'm 21 years old, and a car/motorcycle nut. A few of my babies include a 240sx with a ka24de-t I built, a 1975 bmw 2002, and an '04 zx6rr.
    Back on topic...
    Always been interested in guns, and shot a fair amount. I wanted my CCW the day I turned 21 but due to a weird work schedule I was just able to take the class recently. I have a Kel-Tec pf9 and just got a Taurus 738:

    Anyways, looks like a great informative site! Glad to be a part of it.
    Cheers,
    Tom

    Thanks for all the replies already guys! Been a new and exciting adventure today finally being able to carry. It definitely does feel like everyone looks at you now. Can't wait to get more experience under my belt, to where I'm entirely comfortable.

    Hello, Tom, and welcome from Missouri to a great forum! Great smaller size handguns you have there. I've been thinking about the Keltec PF9, and the Taurus 709 Slim (trying to stay in 9mm) as possible pocket carries - or at least something smaller to carry than my SP2022 9mm.

    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.
