    Howdy from Central Washington

    Howdy from Central Washington!

    Newbie who is also new to carrying. After having one child almost abducted at a community event, and after having been robbed at gunpoint, I reached my limit and am now carrying.

    Thanks for having me.

    Welcome to the forum. Get lots of training and practice.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    Anytime, anywhere.

    If you haven't already done so, I'd recommend picking up a copy of the M. Ayoob book In The Gravest Extreme.

    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".
