    Greetings from Colorado

    I came over from the Ruger forum and I have been in the process of getting my concealed handgun permit for the past 5 months. Here in El Paso County it was a 2 month wait just for the appointment and another 3 months for it to arrive in the mail.

    The good news is that it arrived yesterday and today was my first day carrying. Ran some errands, got lunch, went hunting for ammo....

    I hope to learn from the more experienced members here..... Thanks for having me

    Chris

    Howdy from Ohio...good to have you in the house! My wife and I used to live in Denver for 4 years. Got my first masters degree there. We ask ourselves on a regular basis why we ever moved from God's country of Colorado. Someday we'll get back and not just for vacation!

    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.

    Howdy Hay from the NW corner of WA state. We're glad to have you with us.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    Hello neighbor! I am brand new to concealed carrying too. A fellow Coloradan here...well for the time being I guess. A change of residence is being seriously debated at our house with the recent legislature.
    My hope and prayer is that everyone know and love our country for what she really is and what she stands for.

    Welcome, neighbor!
    You've got one of the strongest 2A supporting sheriff's in the state with Sheriff Maketa! Check out the sheriff's website to see his take on the unconstitutional anti-gun garbage we're fighting against, if you haven't already. I just sent him a kudos email a few days back, even though he's not my sheriff.

    This is a great board, with lots of wisdom. I've learned lots here, and hope you do too.
