Glad to hear you escaped both the Ex and MD.

I am an active duty Corpsman stationed on a ship here in Norfolk. After deploying all over this great world I have come to treasure what I have taken for granted all this time. As an American and as a woman.
I am from Maryland and although I love my home state I do not like the restrictions placed on me as a gun owner. As a domestic violence survivor I was told that I was unable to obtain a CCW permit because his repeated death threats were not a 'valid reason'. Thankfully he never carried through on his threats and I was able, after time, to close that chapter in my life.
I am with a wonderful man for 5 years now who after hearing my story presented me with a Bersa 9mm for my birthday.
I am going to city hall here in Norfolk tomorrow to apply for my CCW and I am pretty excited to leave the victim class once and for all.
Welcome to the forum. Glad to have you aboard.

Wow! I went off to explore the board a little more and didn't expect such a warm welcome. Thank you all!
DaveH, no I am not an FMF yet but I am stationed on an LHD and have earned the respect of many a Marine (an still count quite a few of them as good friends) the big one being my grandfather. It seems that old Marines will still listen to a Corpsman! LOL
What part of SW VA are you from? I have family scattered from Lynchburg to Roanoke.
Welcome from MI
Glad to hear you could get out & everything is going well.
Good luck on the CCW
Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
