    Hello from MA

    Hey All-

    Found this board totally by accident-Enjoying reading it so far. Greetings from the People's Republic of Massachusetts. There are some normal people left here, believe it or not.

    I carry either a Glock 23 or a S&W Model 60, depending. Is there anyone else out there who still carries a Model 60? I bought the 60 used from a friend in 1978 and have pretty much carried it for the last.. let's see... carry the one, multiply by six....Holy c***! Twenty-seven years! How'd that happen!?

    Well- you're never to old to learn something new. Looking forward to learning a few new tricks in here.

    sdb, welcome from another PRM inmate!

    I hope you enjoy it here. This is a well run forum for CCW issues.

    BTW, you might want to take a look at the following:

    - www.neshooters.com - opportunities to train with world-class trainers in Tyngsboro, MA. I'm heading off to a Gabe Suarez class on Friday.

    - www.northeastshooters.com - a forum dedicated to all aspects of gun ownership, focused on folks in the Northeast corner of the USA.

    sdb29,

    Welcome aboard from a fellow Model 60 carrier (occasionally, at least).


    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.

    thanks for the welcome everybody. uudl, where in Kal are you? Back in the mid 90's I lived in the East Bay for a couple of years. I miss the weather out there in the land of fruits and nuts, but the politics were even more liberal there than they are here.

    well, again, thanks for the warm welcome, see you all in the funny papers!

    Hey Hotguns! I'm right down the road from your old neighborhood, over here in New Beffid!

    Do they have cawfee milk in Ark? or linguica?

    Anybody who got the heck out of Mass has made a wise move. I'm locked in here for another six years, five months and thirteen days, and then we're in the wind too.

    sdb29...

    I used to go to the zoo in New Bedford. I also lived in Tiverton which wasnt that far down the road.

    No coffee milk in Arkansas. I went up to Mass. a few years ago to see my grandmother in Somerset. I bought a gallon of coffee milk back with me. My kids loved it...unfortunately, they hadnt seen it or even heard of it since, its a New England thing I think...

    I had forgotten how good it was and could get addicted to it...
