Greetings from the Last Frontier!
Howdy all - my names Brian and I live in Anchorage AK.
I've been lurking the forums for a while and decided to join so I could ask questions and glean information the many experienced members here.
I've lived in Alaska virtually all my life, having been adopted from as a child from Korea, and have enjoyed all manner of recreational activities common to here including, of course, recreational shooting.
That much said, as Anchorage has steadily risen to becoming one of the most dangerous cities, based on population, in the U.S. I've become more and more interested in defensively carrying a firearm. I live in a nice area of town, but Anchorage isn't huge, and I'm a single father with a young daughter and I just feel it's time to take further steps in providing defense for us, and in general.
I'm new to the idea of carrying a weapon concealed or openly, but Alaska fully allows it, with no permits, and I'm hoping that some time here will help make me more comfortable with this addition to my lifestyle and help educate me so I can make informed decisions.
Looking forward to talking with ya'll.
