    Yeah, I'm new.... be gentle....

    Just wanted to introduce myself as I am new to the forum. I'm currently waiting on my Michigan CPL and figured I could learn as much as possible ahead of time and this seemed like a great place to start. I'll be carrying a pair of Sig P239 DAKs (9mm and .40S&W) and just ordered a Milt Sparks Versa Max 2 that should arrive either tomorrow or Tuesday. Once that's done I'm going to pick up a gunbelt from the Beltman. At least I'll be able to practice carrying around the house while I wait for my permit to show up. I'm relatively new to firearms as I started shooting last April but I love it. Anyway, enough babbling.... I look forward to learning a lot from this site. Thanks for having me.

    Spiff:

    If new to concealed carry and shooting, strongly consider some good training. A good option might be to consider the LFI Judicious Use Of Deadly Force course. There's one coming up in June, in Kalamazoo.

    Congrats and welcome.
