    Hello from Fort Myers, FL

    Long-time lurker.

    Background: Former state probation officer who worked corrections for eight years. CJ degree. Never bothered with a CC until two years ago when the gun bug got me (before the panic, thank God). Now, a Lifetime NRA member who puts as much time on the range as time and money allow.

    Aresnal: I originally shopped for a HD pistol (already owned a Mossy 500) while my CC was being processed. Tried everything (Glock 17, Springfield XD9, Ruger SC9, etc) before I tried the P226. It was like a light came on, and I knew this was the one. Purchased a CPO West German P226 9mm on the spot. Outfitted it with Trijicon HD night sights and four Mec-Gar 18 round mags. Still my favorite weapon, and I doubt that will ever change.

    My CC until this week was a Walther PPS 9mm outfitted with Meprolight night sights and a Limbsaver grip. Awesome gun, but too heavy for shorts in the Florida summer and spring. I have been carrying less and less. So, I finally got the go ahead from the missus to get my dream CC; a Sig P938 SAS. Great deal, too, at $679. Going to the range this weekend to put it through it's paces.

    Look forward to learning from and interacting with fellow gun enthusiasts.

    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
