Just wanted to say hi and that I am glad to see so many people on this forum. I have my permits in both Washington State and Oregon state as they neighbor us. I have been carrying for a little over a year now, and am trying to get into law enforcement. I also wanted to share a great quote from Thomas Jefferson:
‘‘Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.’’
‘‘To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.’’
— George Mason

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.
