    Newbie from Oklahoma!

    Hello! My name is Matt. I'm 29 years old, been married for almost 10 years, and have two kids. A 9 year old boy and 15 month old girl. I've been in the Air Force for 10 years and I am currently a flight engineer on the E-3 AWACS. I have quite a few hobbies such as dirt bike racing, powered paragliding, mountain biking, and I'm even turning a full size school bus into an RV. I also do quite a bit of hunting. Mainly wild hogs and ducks. When I grew up, the only gun in the house was an old break over 12ga that my dad used to scare stray dogs off the property. Anyways, I have an assortment of shotguns and rifles that I use for hunting. I also have a Colt .32 semi-auto handgun. I am planning to take my concealed carry course in January when I'll have some time off work. I have always been a firm believer that if there were more, responsible and armed citizens, we could avoid situations like the one in Omaha today, or Virginia Tech earlier this year. If not avoid them, then at least stop them before the death toll is so high. I use quite a few other forums and figured there might be one for concealed carry. Low and behold, a quick Google search got me here! I'm hoping to get some good info! Thanks!

    Matt

    Welcome from Montana.


    When youíre wounded and left on Afghanistanís 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.
