    New guy from S. Florida

    Handlebar aka Mike from S. Florida checking in. Saw the site while on the Bersa Talk forum so I thought I would chime in with you all.

    I am originally from NJ, but have been paroled from there. I have been in FL for 20 years and have had my CWP for 20 years. Hardly a day goes by that I don't have my weapon with me. I generally carry a S&W 637. Sometimes I carry my S&W 908 and recently bought a Bersa Thunder 380 for light days.

    I am a high school biology teacher which only proves that all members of academia are not flaming liberals, although I teach with a bunch of them. I love shooting. I have shot NRA bullseye for over 20 years. I also enjoy plinking on my banjo-I said plinking because some people don't think it is "playing" the banjo. I hope to learn a lot and contribute some. Nice to be here!!

    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.
