Just wanted to stop in and say hi! Though I am living in South Carolina I am proud to say I am originally from Alaska (20 years, 3rd generation). I have a Taurus PT 111 9mm, and took my CCW class last weekend. I have been practicing at the range and spent a weekend with a former Marine DI/Weapons instructor/Police officer who really helped me a lot. My CCW instructor told me after we were done shooting that I should pursue competition shooting, so I felt pretty about that.
I am a 32 year old returning college student studying nursing. I am also a member of Students for Conceal and Carry on Campus.
Great site all, and I hope to contribute.
