    a new member here, but...

    just introducing myself, downrange, but those who get to know me can call me Dave. i'm new into the CCW (in PA born and raised) because of 6+ years active army (but now national guard to end the 8 year obligation which comes with a 2 year stability clause. 2 years in Iraq is enough for me). i was combat arms in aviation and then company armorer in that time. firearms became a way of life for me and not only do i enjoy them, i'm glad i was introduced to them with discipline and respect. there are many sites/forums out there focused on guns but i found this one to be straight forward and well balanced. when i first joined i had a question and got a great response from current members and right away i was glad i became a part. basically... hello and thanks.

    Howdy from No. Dak. I've learned (and learning quite abit) from everyone here. The mods do a great job keeping things adult.
