    Greetings from Western KY

    Just throught I'd throw out a hello. I'm 26 from Western KY (Near the Henderson/Evansville twin bridges) and after completing the state-required CCL course, 15 days ago I submitted my paperwork at the courthouse for my CCL. Now's that dreaded wait until my CCL is here.

    As for me, I'm big on gun collecting. I've got my collection up to 38 firearms of various types. My current flavors of the month are my Glock 19 (which I intend to CC), my Springfield Armory Loaded .45 Stainless, and my old Smith & Wesson Mod. 66-1 6".

    I've been using the Glock 19 for about everything, from range use, to defense, and I even plan on using it for IDPA once my CCL comes in (since I'd need to go into Indiana for a close IDPA location).

    Waiting for your permit is the worst part.

    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.

    Welcome. It sounds like you are not too far from the Owensboro USPSA range (Practical Shooters { www.practicalshooters.com })
    I'll also bet you've made the trip to Whittakers Guns!

    I've been to Whittaker's often. If they didn't close, I'd probably try to move in there. I didn't know about the Owensboro range, though, but I'll check it now now.

    I'm sure the G19 would do well for you for IDPA matches. I used a G17 for my last match, but thinking about my G22 for the next one to do major class. My local club holds IPSC matches once or twice a month and they host one major USPSA match once a year that I did in April. Surely there is something closer to you.
