    South West Michigan

    Hello all. I'm new to the site and thought I'd just say hello and introduce myself. I live in the city of Kalamazoo [yes there really is a Kalamazoo] which is in southwest michigan. I'm also very new to carrying a concealed pistol, as I've been a CCW holder for about 2 months. I take this fact and my training extremly seriously and engage in training as much as humanly possible. I've really enjoyed reading forums about this topic for the sake of advice and opinion. Hopefully I can be a active participant to this forum.

    Hey d2 - welcome along.

    Glad you have your CCW and do share all thoughts with us regarding your new status - plus ask any questions you wish, in case we can assist.

    Good bunch here but beware the occasional funnin' - it keeps things lighthearted.
