    Hey from SW Missouri

    Firearm experience mainly from Vietnam infantry duty and new to handgun and concealed carry. Getting concealed carry permit soon. Where do I look for suggestions on how to carry?

    You're here Bill. Ask away--hint: be specific if you can.

    Welcome from Michigan!

    Yours was a war where your country largely cheated you out of a proper "Welcome Home!" you so richly deserved. I'd like to offer a belated thanks for your service, it WAS (and is) appreciated by more than it seemed.

    As to where on the site to go for your information, the "Concealed Carry Discussion" area is loaded with good information on what/how to carry. Check out the Holsters and Carry Options Forum for advice on that, and Concealed Carry Guns for info on weapon types (not sure if you've already made your choice there).

    Concealed Carry Issues and Discussions can range from great info on where/when/how to carry, to "the politics" of carrying to just getting to know other members better.

    Further down the page, you'll find info on Tactics and Training, Defensive Scenario's, ammo and other related fields. All good stuff.

    Have fun and enjoy the site!
    Regards, T Bone.

    Welcome from another RVN vet in Montana.

    Drop by the Veterans Roll Call thread when you have the time and tell us about your service.


    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.
