    N Huntingdon, PA saying Hi!

    Hey everyone...

    Wow... only been on this forum for a few hours and I have learned so much. I'm maily here because I want to be more consistent with my concealed carry but haven't really had the gear to do so (in PA we are required to have a CCW permit, which I have had for a couple years now.) I am a mortgage broker and title agent (one of the good ones, not one that rips people off) and got a CCW mostly to protect myself because I can leave closings with a considerable sum of money sometimes on my way to the bank. I would try and carry my Bersa Thunder .380 with me but it would weigh down whatever pocket I put it in, kinda taking away from the "concealed" part, and it was never very easy to draw. However, after this last tragedy in the heartland, and seeing all the "sheepeople" having to hide behind clothes and in dressing rooms praying to god that they wouldn't be a victim I have really woken up. I have gone through the concealed carry forum and have gotten some great ideas for clothing that will allow me to comfortably carry my weapon of choice while still meeting the dress attire my line of work requires.

    A little about myself: I am not a gun nut (the same can't be said about cars, especially Chevy Small Blocks and classic BMW inline 6's... I have them lying all over the garage), but I do enjoy the many makes and styles of pistols, revolvers, rifles and shotguns. I have a pretty specific philosophy when it comes to a fight: If I can run, then I will run to fight another day; if I must shoot my shots will be quick and accurate; if it is too close for a gun fight then I will rely on my decade plus of martial arts training. A fight with rules to me is just a game, and when it comes to my life or my family's protection, I don't play games.

    Anyway... thanks for all the great information on this website. If anyone has any recommendations for my kind of CCW situation please feel free to do so.

    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.

    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    It's not what you go thru in life, but how well you go thru it.

    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.
