    Hello from North Colorado

    Howdy All,
    Great looking forum you have here. Lively, active and a wealth of great information.

    I'm a native Texan who lives in Big Elk Meadows near Estes Park, Colorado and works in the Peoples' Republic of Boulder. I applied for my CCW 42 days ago. Larimer County said that it would take 2-3 months to receive my licence from them, but I've read that some get their's in 45 days. Looking forward to taking that first trip to Wally World.

    Thanks for having me.

Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides...” (Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria)

    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.
