    Hello from God's Waiting Room - - Florida

    Just here to say "hey", browse around for good info, and avoid any place where people write in wanting to know if "it's legal to carry in this situation" (How did we get our permit if we don't know). Hope you are all home with family on Labor Day.

    Actually, there are situations where folks are wondering about new spots they've never gone to and are, prior to going there, looking for some guidance on where to confirm the legality. Nobody's knowledge is photographic and encyclopedic, particularly since so many municipalities, counties and states change the little buggers from time to time, often frequently enough folks simply can't stay abreast of each little change. BTDT, myself, once or twice.

    Plus, the mere fact we have the discussions in public helps to show the sort of thinking we all go through, helps to identify the online resources one has available for checking out such things, helps to show where case law can matter in certain situations, etc. Often, some folks bring particular knowledge of a given case or example to bear, which pertains to the question. Useful, for all those reasons. Plus, it's the rare CHL introductory course that presents all this stuff clearly and correctly across the entire spectrum of statutes that apply to us (both for arms and use-of-force).

    Welcome to the forum!

    Since signs do not carry the weight of law, in Georgia, I pretty much carry anywhere not listed in Georgia statutes, unless I see a gunbuster sign.

    Welcome. Hope you don't quit when you read those questions, because they are here also.

    But mostly there are lots and lots of great thoughts and idea/experience sharing threads. Pick and choose the ones you want. My first experience here was when I found a thread on line which talked about a particular holster that I had ordered. After I got the holster and found it was totally useless for me I returned, joined the forum, posted my review - and have been hooked ever since.

    Welcome from the Palmetto State.

    Laws change,some may want a refresher on what is right or wrong.Some may be looking for opinions on carry situations.

    I've asked a couple of things,i thought i knew but just wanted to make sure.The members on here have been helpful.

    Welcome to the forum.

    There are things most CCers know,but i have 2 more years to go, before i can get mine.One of the reasons i joined is to ask and learn.I've probably asked questions that may seem dumb to some people.These guys have helped.

    I know i have to read the laws and keep going over them,but i like hearing from people,and not just reading from a website.I don't want to be in the dark when my time comes to get my CCP.

    Welcome from Wisconsin!

    The only dumb question is the one that goes unasked. I've asked plenty myself, lol. I consider myself to be educated with lots of world experience but try reading things written in legalese & it's like reading a foreign language. What I can't decipher chances are someone else can & a lot of gun laws may not be fully covered in a concealed carry class or glossed over at best & by the time you finally understand it the clowns change it, lol.
