    Newbie

    Some of us are new even if we are old! I would like to introduce myself... I am a 65 year old grandmother from Oregon. I just recently got my concealed carry license and all the responsibility that goes with it. And all the frustration of trying to find a way to comfortably carry my little "baby". I have resorted to purse carry, even though I know it is not the best way. Any suggestions anyone may have would be appreciated. Glad to be part of this interesting group!

    Welcome from Ohio!! And correction, you are a 65 year young Grandmother who is enjoying the shooting sports to their fullest. Congrats!

    As for the comfortable way and place to carry. Welcome to the forum where so many of us seek the very same thing. Ask how many holsters folks here own. HA
    It's not a problem til they make it one!
