Howdy from N.E. Kansas
Howdy from the land of Ahhhhs.
I thought that I better pop in here first for a brief intro of my self before I start with questions and my thoughts. The name is Bradford but have gone by Woodbee for years. I was a carpenter and then a general contractor for most all of my life. I live in rural N.E. Kansas. My range is 100" out my office door. I have all my paperwork and training done for my concealed carry and am just waiting for our attorney general who of course is backlogged like in every other "friendly" state.
I am older long armed with arthritis in my shoulders. I also have a pot belly and am finding concealment a real challenge. Strong side draw for me is a painful unless it's an old western style. So I am looking at either a shoulder rig or something at the 10:00-11:00 position. I will also pocket carry while it is warm.
I will get into these issues in the appropriate forums later. Just wanted to say "Hey" and then take a good look around this site.
I see that I have already screwed up here and got this posted on someone else's thread. My bad. I am old please excuse me.

Howdy Hay from WA state Today Woodbee. We've got an island here called Whidbey Island that's pronounced just like your name. Plenty of old farts here so you're in good company.
I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

Welcome from Wisconsin! I don't know how old you are but I know at my age whenever I have to wait for something from the gummint I have to wonder what will arrive first - the document or the grim reaper.

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