    New kid on the block!

    Hi! I like this site, real carry people! Even saw some threads on the Charter Arms Bulldog .44 special. Of course, it's an expensive hobby, and I try not to get carried away, but I recently walked into a pawnshop just to look, and not to buy, and oh well! Saw a Taurus Raging Bull with 8 & 3/8 inch barrel in stainless steel, full length ribbing and underlug, terminating at the factory V-8 ported barrel with expansion chamber. Enough of that! This is a defensive carry site, and the big Taurus doesn't belong here. Oh, I've got a Makarov in 9x18 that I love to hit empty cans with at a hundred feet, and a Colt .38 special and a few other little odds and ends - one of which is my defensive carry; the Charter Arms Bulldog Pug. Now, I carried a rifle and a back pack for six years in the Marine Corps as 0311, and of course I've qualified with several platforms. You know, the M9 Beretta is my favorite auto pistol, but that's not for me as a defensive carry. The .44 special Bulldog Pug is what I carry concealed. Sure, I could pack that snappy looking Makarov, but how, God forbid, in a court of law, can one defend oneself if he had to shoot the perp multiple times? With the .44 special, a legal defense is easier because only one shot would be necessary. Purely a defensive platform, delivering a munition of 260 grain at 1000 fps. I consider it a defensive system; I have two Galco Gun leather holsters for it - a pocket holster and a belt holster. In summer it goes in the pocket. In winter, on the belt, covered by a sweater or jacket. Also, I have Crimson Trace Laser Grips on it, and a pistol safe bolted onto the frame in the cab of my Ford pickup truck - because I can't carry it into work with me at the hospital. Now let me shut my suck and try to post a pic or two, since a picture is worth a thousand words. Maybe I should have posted the pics first! Eh?008.jpg001.jpg002.jpg

    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.

    Boricua, te envié un mensaje de la página de mensajes, pero no sé si la has recibido. Es un poco difícil aprender usar la funciona de enviar mensajes en esta programa, esto pienso yo. Por lo tanto, quiero decir estoy muy lastimado con lo que ha pasado al Macho Camacho. Ojalá él pueda mejorarse de la herida. Aúnque pienso es posible, con milagro. He tenido muchos amigos de Puerto Rico cuando estaba en el servicio al colores. Mucho gusto en conocerte, amigo. Vivo en Oklahoma, treinta millas al norte del Rio Rojo.
