I've been reading posts in this forum for the last few weeks. My CCW is pending. You guys (and girls) have helped my choose my carry weapon (G27), my holsters (Galco Summer Comfort, and a Milt Sparks VM2. I've stocked up on practice ammo, and purchased a membership at the local shooting range. I've convinced my gf and two friends to submit their ccw applications as well. I'm not really a "gun guy", just someone who wishes to protect myself within the limits of the law.
