    Howdy from N. Texas suburbs

    Howdy gentlemen. Thought I'd sign on and see what I can learn about CC for citizens.

    The wife and I don't live anywhere that we feel threatened. Plano, AHEM, West Plano is a world full of clean Hummers even when it rains, oversized homes, and freshly sodded lawns. Hell, since moving here from Kansas, I'm even picking up a British accent and starting to wonder why poor people just don't work harder.

    My wife is about to start staying home full time to raise a soon-to-be-born little girl and she's turning in to a security nut (see paragraph above). I don't know why, but apparently our safe surroundings, monitored home alarm, and 3yr-old Pit Bull mix aren't sufficient, so I taught her how to shoot a few of the guns in my arsenal. Perhaps it was upon hearing that my mother, a virtual stranger to my dog, was able to enter our home with her Yorkie while we were at work and was greeted with the wagging tail and licking tongue of my vicious Pit Bull mix.

    Has anybody noticed that when there's a story about a Pit Bull killing somebody or injuring a child, it's always at a piece of crap home and the dog lived full time tied to a stake in the yard? Oops, wrong forum for that rant...

    To me, taking a concealed carry course and getting the permit is more about picking up a new hobby than carrying, and as an American, I like to have the choice to carry if I felt like I wanted to. I don't know if I ever will even after qualifying. I'll probably pursue it this month or next.

    I hope to learn much from this forum.

    Thank you!

    Welcome from Montana.


    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.
