    Northwest Native

    I've been lurking here for awhile, and finally registered, so I'll introduce myself.

    I'm new here, but not to CC. Now in my mid-40s, I've had a Washington CPL since I turned 21. The license was more important to me than being able to legally enter bars! I have carried regularly for the last 20+ years -- I even kept my CPL when I moved to Alaska. Most of the time, "Don't leave home without it" is my choice. Work interferes with that rule, however.

    I carry a customized Colt Officer's Model 80 in stainless -- bought it and had it worked over when I did biological field work and ruined the slide on my PT-99 after taking a dunk in a creek. Ramped, beveled mag well, trigger job, widened ejection port, abidexterous safety, etc. After so many years, it is like an extension of my body.

    I'm fortunate to have acreage where I can shoot all I want and nobody complains -- there is always a torso target or two set up and a hint to trespassers!

    This is a great forum -- a lot of knowledgeable folk and good information.

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

    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.
