    Hello From PA

    Hello All
    I'm Just one of the crowd in the Philly Suburbs.
    I've owned guns since I was 15 and finally decided to start carrying.
    Have my PA permit and tomorrow I'm taking the class to get the Florida non-resident.
    Lately I've been tried several options including the Ruger SR-9, Charter Arms Pit-bull, Charter arms undercover 38 and now the Ruger LCR 357 mag.
    Looks like I'm going to settle in with the LCR. It's a sweet weapon that has a trigger pull smoothe as butter.

    I'm still in the early stages where it doesn't feel natural carrying a loaded weapon but I'm slowly doing so more and more.

    Welcome from Missouri. The more often and longer you carry...the more comfortable you will become with it. Plus....keep learning. Knowledge is also adds to the comfort level.

    Welcome to you from a fellow Pennsylvanian. I live in Montgomery County. I see you are in Springfield. Is that Delco or Montco?

    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Welcome from Michigan!
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!

    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.
