    I swear, we'll get concealed carry eventually!

    Hello all, I'm new to the forum. I just recently joined the firearm community several weeks ago by purchasing a SA XD-9 Service, and I'm pretty happy with it. I have about 400 rounds through it so far and the only FTE was an untrained shooter that limp-wristed it. Anyways, about me. My name's Jake, I'm 21 and unfortunately I live in Milwaukee, WI. I think you all know why that's unfortunate (I swear we'll get concealed carry like the rest of the country one of these times!) At any rate, I'm a US Marine (0311 for those who know) and I got back from my tour in Iraq about 5 months ago. (I'm the one on the right in my avatar) Umm, other than that, I don't really know what to say.

    Smile Welcome!

    Jake, welcome to our little corner of the internet. Thank you for serving our country, and I look forward to your contributions.

    A couple of questions - could you explain your screen name, and what did you do in Iraq?

    Welcome aboard Jake.

    Not sure but - did I see you'd joined THR too quite recently?

    Welcome Jake. Hope WI get their heads out of their fourth point of contact and allow CCW.

    Hehe, I just took my screen name from the comedian Ron White, he has a couple stand up acts talking about his alias 'tater salad' that I found quite amusing. As far as what I did in Iraq, I am a member of 2/24, a reserve Marine infantry batallion from the midwest also known as the 'Mad Ghosts.' We were activated June of last year, did a 3 month work up in Camp Pendleton, spent 7 months in-country (our A.O. was just south of Baghdad in the 'triangle of death' ) Anyways, I spent 7 months over there running offensive ops, security, vcps, etc. Glad to be home though. P95Carry, yes, I also recently joined THR as well, thanx for noticing!

    Yea, that would be nice. Who knows, as of recently there's a little suspision about a campaign contribution to Doyle from Adleman Travel that might disrupt his re-election campaign, that will give us a better shot for sure!

    Welcome to the Forum Tater.. ...Sempre Fi, as I know what your M O S is. Hope you played plenty of "Rock-N-Roll" with those toys that Uncle Sam lends out to you Grunts and groundpounders ( I say that with greatest respect ) My younger Brother served in the Corps, 78 to 83 with 2nd ANGLICO at Camp Swampy.
    Nuthin like callin in an Close Air Support or Air Strike, either with Cobras, FA 18s, Harriers, or a little A10 action. Remember, the perfect Marine battle is, a Marine Anphibious Landing, with Marine Air Support, and Navel Gunfire Support.
    Thank you for your service to your Country

    I do hope that WI passes their CCW laws. I also hope that the big towns do not nix CCW within their boundaries. If the state does it right they will preempt any local laws.
    Shoot well and be safe
