    California Kid

    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.

    Welcome from Oregon.

    Um, er, since you, um, er, chose a G27 (nice choice, BTW) you won't be needing that 9mm ammo. I know of a needy forum member.

    Welcome from Louisiana! Did you leave enough ammo in the stores for the rest of us?

    That's just what I got at Wally world on Friday. I have a little more than that stored up

    I also have a SW9VE (9mm) that makes my range sessions a little more affordable.

    I made the choice to give up my cell phone ($100/month) for guns/ammo/range action instead. Had to get my priorities in line with my budget.

    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.
