    <---- and another Newbie!

    Hello all,
    I also stumbled across this great website... several times in search of information. New to concealed carry, CCW "in process" currently.

    Just my nature to find out all the info I can relative to any topic I involve my self in. Everytime I did a search ... BANG, this website would appear. Had to join & Congrat's a lot of good info...

    I am a single dad, raising an awesome little boy in Southeastern Michigan.

    I still have my 1st gun, Colt Gold Cup .45 Stainless and every few years put a few more $$$ into it. I have also obtained two revolvers from my elderly father, both .38 S&W's: a 38yr old model 10-5 4" barrel "Military Police" & a 41yr old Model 14-3 "K38 Masterpiece".

    My new gun, intended for carry IWB - OWB is a Ruger SP101 model: KSP-321-X-LG (with hammer spur & Crimson Trace LG-303 laser grip). I know, I know... I have read all the info stating it's too heavy, don't get with hammer, get the hard polymer CT grip... I originally ordered a hammerless & a LG-111. But, this one came in first, and the dealer offered it to me for the same $$$. I took a look at it, felt great with the rubber overmold and hammer for SA. It's Mine Now!!!
    I will one day get a S&W Airweight, Scandium, or Titanium .38 MAXIMUM... I shot a handfull of .357 with a Airweight and I don't need to anymore.

    Sorry folks... rambling on a bit, on my second large mug of coffee.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Keep up the great work...

    Mund

    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.

    SP101 is on my short list of future acquisitions. Great choice if I do say so myself!
