    Hi from the wrong side of the atlantic

    Hi from Europe, that god-forsaken gunless continent over there best forgotten.

    Seeing as gun rights are fairly nonexistent, I haven't gone through the troubles of jumping through all their hoops for gun ownership yet. There's a 21 year limit for the handgun too so I'm not even old enough for that if I tried. All my gun experience is from the brief draft stint in the military. I do have signed papers proving my proficiency with this thing, though. Anyone got a good IWB recommendation for that..?

    Seeing as carry issues are fairly redundant/hypothetical for my purposes until I finally get into the situation where I can flee this country, I'll mostly lurk, although I'll probably pop in like a curious monkey now and then.

    Greetings from Pennsylvania USA



    I used to be in UK - I know all about crazy gun laws! Feel sorry for folks there and in many Euro countries too - oppression thru control seems alive and well.

    BTW - I am not aware of any suitable IWB as yet - for the Bofors LOL I think a big rig 18 wheeler might be best, then plenty of room for ammo as well!

    Well, some places can grab you for mere lurking, so be happy!

    Uh, nope. Gonna have a tough time hiding that thing, to be sure. You'd have to drive a dump truck to carry the reloads.

    Welcome to DefensiveCarry! Jump right into the discussions, if you've got anything to say. The more the merrier. Always nice to hear a different point of view.

    Welcome from NE Florida. I used to carry mine in this holster, but as you can see it doesn't conceal very well.

    Welcome from Montana, USA.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Norway, the second most gun-littered country in Europe next after Switzerland. It's all hunting rifles and target shooting though, they hate evil black rifles and evil black pistols just like the stereotype goes.
