I recently acquired a kindly little s&w 640 in .357 mag from my uncle. Just skimming the surface it seems like I should be able to learn a lot from y'all.

    Welcome to the site. Just a note -- in the Commonwealth, it's called a Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) which specifically allows handguns, not 'weapons' to be concealed. It's a fairly easy process to obtain a CHP, assuming that you meet all of the requirements and have none of the restrictions.

    So, how Hairy are you (and I won't touch the Potter part of it)?
    Hahaha I was wondering if I would get any comments on that....main reason for that username is it's been my nickname in my home town since middle school. A more direct answer, if you were looking for it, is that my ponytail gets me accused of being one of those "long haired freaky people", but I don't quite resemble sasquatch. If that's what you were thinking... And as to the "potter", rest assured I am neither a recreational drug user nor skillful shaper of clay haha.

    thanks for the correction in terms; I've already researched it pretty thoroughly, including checking statues and precedents on the use of deadly force (which in itself has been a lot of food for thought) in our commonwealth, and I have the form saved on my computer waiting for my printer to decide to work again...

    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.
