    Just checking in here - great forum!

    Some of you may already know me from other forums as CWV or Downrange (that name taken here, lol!). I'm fairly recently a CCW, and celebrated the SCOTUS ruling Thursday with a purchase of a PPK/S, something I've always wanted, anyway. Working through the initial reliability issues now, but it looks promising. Primarily a 1911 guy, I also carry a S/W 642 CT, and have even been known to tote an old Raven Arms .25! If it shoots, I love it.
    Hope to learn a lot here, as that's truly the purpose of the internet "gun culture." I like Ross's term, and identify with it personally.
    Thanks for having the forum and making it available to us!

    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.

    It's not what you go thru in life, but how well you go thru it.

    Welcome from Savannah
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
