    New to the Forum, not to a CCW.

    Hello to all!

    Longtime pistol advocate, baseball player, and motorcyclist. I graduated from Harrisburg, PA Police Academy in '94, but found that I just did not have the patience for part of the job, (courts;judges;lawyers). Just settled for being an above average, informed/trained, private citizen.

    Met a lovely lady 6 years ago with 2 young children and sorta stopped carrying due to some emotional problems of one of the children, (father was/is a SOB). Felt better with the gun safe kept locked and not opening it. Have been married for a little over 2 yrs now and things have settled down nicely. Boys are better and older.

    I now feel comfortable to start carrying on a regular basis once again. I have kept my CW permit current and been plinking around the range during the fall season to get the feel again. Fortunately, it's like riding a bike, but is always a great idea to stay sharp!

    Look forward to soaking up and catching up on all the buzz!!

    Thanks in advance & see ya' around!

    Big Dave
