    Hello from Oklahoma

    Hello fellow concealed carry ladies and gents. I must apologize for my lousy spelling, my user name should actually be Gun Loving Liberal (not Liveral) but such are typos. I will correct the spelling within days, once I figure out how to work everything.
    First, my name is true, there really are a few of us, who are basically political liberals but disagree with gun control laws. I guess I harken back to another time (I am almost 54) when politics were less polarized. People were certainly liberal or conservative, but it was common for, say, a Democrat to agree 80% with the party but break with them on a few key issues. Likewise for Republicans. Now it seems most people are 100% one way. I think we got more done the older way and that is the only political argument I am every going to make here!
    But it is true that gun ownership in Oklahoma is far from strictly party line!
    My avatar is my most frequently concealed carry piece, a Charter Arms Tracker, 5 shot in .357 magnum with 2 and 1/2 inch barrell. I usually load it with .38 plus p federal Hydrashocks as I found the use of .357 regularly made the gun a little loose. Charter Arms is a good pistol but would not hold up well to steady diets of magnums. My wife and I received our concealed carry permits last year and I have felt much more relaxed, especially when traveling.

    In Oklahoma, even we liberals like guns!

    Heck keep the handle it's pretty cool the way it is, since we all carry because we celebrate life here, no matter what anyones personal philosophy is

    Liveral:

    This is a great board, for all persuasions; folks disagree without getting disagreeable.

    Probably more folks on here lean right than left, but there is a delightful absence of rudeness and stridence about it.

    When I saw your name, I wondered if you drank too much...

    I'm Democrat, too....but I'd just love to see ol' Hillary or Diane or Nancy come and try to take MY freakin' 13-round XD45 magazines off of me....
