    Newby from Oregon

    Howdy all..

    Dave from Oregon here. I'm married with two kids, did 8 years in the Army (4 infantry/4 cav. scout) and currently working in the semiconductor business.

    Don't have my CCW yet but the app has been submitted and I go for my appointment to get finger printed next week. A friend of mine is the Northwest sales rep for S&W so he hooked me up with an unbeatable deal. Somewhere in the mail, I have a M&P 45 & and a M&P 9c coming - both from the factory and equipped with night sights and 3 mags each. I'm pretty excited about that to say the least. Currently the only handgun that I have is a Ruger P90 45 which is a bit on the large and heavy side for carrying.

    So that said, I'm glad to be here and i'm looking forward to reading the many posts.

    Hey, DV. Nice to see another Oregonian.
