    Hello from Rhode Island

    Hello,

    I am relatively new to CCW. I have been carrying for a little less than one year. I recently started carrying a Rohrbaugh R9 which I am very happy with. I was previously carrying my Beretta 8000F Model L which I still love, but I just wanted a true pocket pistol.

    I have already learned quite a lot from lurking. Thanks a lot and hello everyone.

    Greetings from PA



    I also have an R9 - which is generally relegated to BUG or occasional primary.

    It's a shall issue State. You can get a permit from the Chief of Police in your town, but most do not issue. Otherwise you can apply to the Attorney General (AG) for a permit.

    I got mine through the AG but I had to meet with the BCI Chief first. The Chief is a reasonable guy and CCW friendly, but he does want to size up who is asking and why.

    Once the current administration changes, it may revert to a non-issue State again. Lucky mine is good for 5 years.

    Wow......I take my hat off to you guys........

    Nicest forum greeting I've ever seen.

    I think I need to visit Tenessee..... I almost had a business trip to Nashville but it got canceled. Seems like lots of conventions have been moving that way since New Orleans got hit. Maybe in the future.

    Thanks again for the warm welcome.
