    Hello from the Permian Basin.

    I just want to say this forum has been a great learning tool. While I am not new to guns, I am new to CCW. In fact, I haven't got my permit yet. I just recently purchased a pistol for carry. It's a Kimber Crimson Ultra Carry. I am really just wanting to learn all I can about laws, stategies, and everything I can about carrying. I also want to get very proficient with my new gun before I get my permit and start carrying it. Thanks for making it so fun to read and informative here!

    Welcome, glad you're doing the things necessary before carrying.

    Welcome from Wisconsin, Hillhick! Congrats on the Kimber. I hope your license comes soon so you can legally carry & protect your family & yourself. Although from your screen name & your suspected location I don't imagine it's quite as bad as the asphalt jungle I live in. Moonshiners? Meth labs? I'd guess that they're just as much of a problem there as anywhere else.

    Happy shooting.

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

    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.
