    From Eugene Oregon to Los Angeles Ca.

    Hello-
    Glad to be here in the constant California sunshine, but my Oregon CHL has the same power as a fake ID in my county. Having saved my own butt twice, and someone else's a third time; Now I am told here to just dial 911? Reported a car wreck last week and it took over 6 minutes to get a 911 operator on the line. What I read in the local papers is "just take all the guns away" and everything will be all right.
    These people here just cannot separate reality from some perfect concept that does not exist. Those idiots in charge do not get the non-perception of the criminal mind. Gang activity is the highest in the nation and they all believe they are above the law. Bad guys do not go to gun shows or gun retailers; They break into your house to get a serial numbered firearm registered to a legal purchaser.
    The stack of books I have read on the subject of CCW is over 2 feet high. I wanted to be as educated on the subject as I could. The weapons course I took in Oregon was very informative, however I learned as much in the chit-chat session after the last class as in the whole course. I lived in a commercial building where I worked and was 500 yards from the nearest house. I carried my Taurus 44 special ultralite snub every day since Dec '99. Now I half to leave it at home while I go out to try and make a living while I pray someone else's job is not to break in and steal it.
    I really enjoy this forum and a place to share thoughts about the subject. I also like to read THR.
    Thank You Kindly, bullseyebob.

    Welcome from the place you left.

    So why did you leave Oregon to live in California??
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    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.
