    Thumbs up Hello from Jacksonville, FL

    Hello everyone, I just joined Defensivecarry.com today but have been reading a lot of post here for a while now as a guest. I live in Jacksonville, FL and I just received my CCW permit in the mail a few days ago. I'm new to CC'ing but not to firearms being a Deputy Sheriff for 6 years now. Being new to carrying, I recently got a Glock 27 Gen 4 and have really been enjoying it. Shooting it when I can at Gateway, I became a member there recently and I will be entering my first IDPA match in April. Glad to become a member to a great forum.

    Welcome to the forum Got family down that way actually. Glad you're here!
    Carry means carry. That means all of the time. If you don't, you're just kidding yourself and opening up options for someone to take you down.

    Hi Jblud1986! Welcome to the forum from Texas. This is a great place to learn and to share! Congrats on getting your CCW permit. I'm curious - as a Deputy Sheriff, can't you carry off-duty?

    Jblud1986: Welcome. I live in Ponte Vedra and belong to Gateway. I won't mention out loud how long I have been a member. I hate to get tears on my keyboard.
    Shoot me an e-mail and maybe we can meet up sometime at the range. ted@tedtyndall.com

    Welcome from Orlando. G27 is a great carry gun....what is your duty weapon? A lot of the deputies down here carry a G22 and G27 as backup.

    Welcome from East Texas. Had many a fun bike run from Jax to St. Augustine back in the '70's in the Navy.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! I was wondering why a Deputy needs a CCW license, too. Every Deputy & PO I know locally carries automatically & with HR 218 carry about anywhere in the US. As a matter of fact I gave my LEO son my Glock 23 & 21 to carry off duty.

    Come on - spill the beans. Your real name is Barney Fife, lol.
