    Hello from Portland Oregon

    I'm an old guy, considering going through the steps of buying a handgun, getting training & a permit.
    Oregon seems to have a pretty good conceal carry permit system.

    Welcome old guy!
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    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.
