    New in South Florida

    I moved from NY to FL about a year and a half ago, and had every intention of obtaining my concealed carry soon thereafter, but kept procrastinating... the VT events pushed me to finally get the process going, so it's just a matter of weeks now. Already joined the NRA too.

    I'm very green when it comes to firearms, being raised in NY and all, but in the short time I've been lurking on this forum, I feel much more knowledgeable already!

    I'm not a big guy -- 160 lbs, 5'9", so I will probably be leaning towards something fairly compact (XD, Kahr, small Glock if I like the grip?). Plus, at work, I'm a victim of having to look very professional, tucked button-down shirt and dress pants, so a very discreet holster will be a must.

    Enough rambling for now.

    -Andrew

    Welcome to the Gunshine State and the forum. I too started out in NY but saw the light in '57 - been here since. If you haven't already done so, check out www.floridashootersnetwork.com .
