    New from St.Pete, Florida

    Thanks for having me here. I found the site while searching on google for waiting times on the CWP in Florida. I plan to take my cwp safety class in late November then apply for the license in person at the Tampa licensing office. Seems like there's a lot of helpful people on this site, so I decided to join. I work here in St.Pete and attend the University of South Florida's Criminology program. I've been around handguns and rifles since I was around 3-4 years old and understand the responsibility of owning a firearm. I look forward to talking with all of you and learning new things.

    Welcome from Savannah
    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".

    Welcome

    Welcome to the place for people of all ages, beliefs and colors! (Sort of sounds like a well run shooting range, doesn't it?) Glad to have you as a member.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.

    Why would I do that?! I went to grade school from Kindergarten-8th grade in the middle of "South St.Pete' without issue. I have friends who live in the "hood", in very bad areas, etc. From my understanding its a good idea to be aware of your surroundings at anytime while you're in ANY area, not just South St.Pete. Yes, there's more theft in this part of the county then others, as well as domestic violence (a lot of crimes are also not reported). I don't act like an ass hat and talk crap to people, its all about respect, your actions and your awareness of your surroundings.
