    New Guy from SW Florida

    Howdy from Venice FL.

    Stumbled upon this site when I was doing a little online research. I am originally from Canada, so I had limited experience with handguns until I moved to FL approx 15 years ago. For a long time, I never felt the need to carry any kind of personal protection, I'm sure this is due to my growing up in the Great White North. Over the past couple of years I have started to see the value of carrying protection and finally got around to getting my CCW. My greatest passion is riding my motorcycle which leads me to all kinds of far away places. I felt this could potentially put in into harms way as I seem to have a habit of ending up in the wrong sections of these little towns as I explore our countryside.

    I think I have stumbled upon a site with lots to learn from folks that have been doing this much longer than I have. Look forward to lots of good reading!

    Congratulations on getting around to your permit and welcome to the forum!
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    If you own a handgun and your state law allows it, please carry.

    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.
