    About Time! Greetings From AZ!

    I thought it was time I post my official "hello" after lurking around here for while. I applied for my concealed weapons permit on January 15th, was approved on the 20th, and after after discovering my permit was sent with the incorrect address the first time, finally received it today. Not that I am complaining. I know many have waited much longer.

    I did make the traditional trip to Wal-Mart. I was unable to buy nachos or ammunition, however, so I hope I can be forgiven. Between purchasing a Smith and Wesson SW1911 and an IWB holster for it, I'm broke for a while! Nothing outstanding to report from Wal-Mart. I wouldn't say I was nervous about being "made" in a store where most of the customers and employees barely understand other people exist.

    I'm certainly not bitter from many sessions of Wal-Mart cart dodging on my way to the ammunition counter.

    I have learned much from this forum already about concealed carry, and I hope to learn even more .

    Oh yes, I almost forgot. Dancing banana!
