    Newbie here

    Glad I found this forum. I just received my CCL and purchased my firearm. I live in an area of the state that is not the safest and I want to be able to LEGALLY carry my firearm in the passenger area of my car for protection as well as on my person when I feel I need to.

    I am NOT a police officer however, I have been through the Citizens Police Academy, am friends with our city officers and have a minister friend who is the police chaplain. He also carries a badge and has a CCL and encouraged me to go through the CCL training and application process.

    "love_my_glock" as a screen name makes you definitely welcome in my book. And I'm guessing that even the "other guys" are welcoming you.
    (Disclaimer: A lot of of us love our Glocks and also our other FAs, but Glock is good enuf for me)

    Arkasas is a good State to live in. A very "FREE-State".
    I moved to the Heartland myself from Detroit, to retire in peace & freedom.
    My Grand-children go to 'safe-protected' schools and our Pastor doesn't believe in 'Gun-Free-Zones'.

    Until I wrecked my back last year, my wife & I spent a LOT of time riding our bike all through AR.
    The Glock 23 was my favorite duty-issue sidearm.
