    Greetings from Virginia

    First of all I love this site. Great source of information and stories from the members.

    I recently retired after doing 22 years active duty Navy. I have always been around guns but usually they were issued to me. I worked in the SPECWAR community so had plenty of range time and familiar with the Colt 45 M1911 from back when I first joined the Navy, SIG SAUER's and M-4 but that is about it. I actually own a Sig 226 and Colt 45 M1911 because I knew from experience they were great guns.

    I now have my conceal carry permit and that is all new to me. I registered with this site to learn more about what to look for in a good conceal carry pistol... besides the obvious size issue.

    Welcome from the Richmond area.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
