    Greetings from ST. Charles county Missouri

    Greetings fellow Defensive Carry Members,

    I am a 69 YO Male recently moved to Missouri from Alabama. I have been carrying open and concealed (where legal) since 1966. I just recently attended the required class in Missouri and have applied for my CCW permit. I am married and my wife and I are living in a small 1BR apartment while our house is being built. I retired two years ago and just a couple of months ago sold the home in Alabama and moved back to Missouri. I have two married daughters and a married son living within 5 miles of my home here in St. Charles county. I have 8 grandchildren.

    I am interested in carrying concealed because i want to be in a position to protect my family and I refuse to be a defenseless victim. I carry a Glock 27 in a Fobus paddle holster and also carry a Ruger SR1911. I have taken many defense classes and i shoot both handguns every week. I practice shooting with both eyes open and in daylight and in the dark with a flashlight. I also practice magazine changes.

    but greetings to all and glad to be a part of the forum.

    From the 60s to late 80s there were few laws regulating concealed or open carry. It was not at all unusual to see someone carrying open.
