    Louisiana new member

    I just joined a few days ago. My son had found this forum while researching some CCW info, and sent me the link. I like the layout, group, discussion and so far everything I see.

    I just started exploring this site tonight and I see I should have probably come here first and introduced myself.

    Anyway, my wife and I live in Louisiana, our 2 grown kids live in state also. I'm a farmer, but have 25 years of experience as a reserve deputy, but have since retired that commission (25 yrs was enough!). A year or so ago my wife successfully completed arrest team training, connnected with her job. She brought home a DVD of part of her training where she had to take a blast of pepper spray to an eye, then be able to function through 4 different exercises, one was an attempt to take her holstered gun away from her. She did good, I was proud of her.

    We both have applications in for CCW. She is pro-gun, though she didn't grow up with shooter experience. She complains about carrying the extra weight of a gun in her purse, I wonder if she'd complain about the equivalent weight of a wad of cash in her purse??? <--- That's rhetorical, I know the answer :)

    Actually she'll carry once she gets her cc, the extra weight is a non-issue compared to other more serious issues.

    I've been a shooter all of my life, I've got quite a few guns, I'm even hesitant to list part of them. If it were up to my wife I'd only have two, according to her a man should have a long gun and a short gun only. Oh how wrong she is!
