I don't think I had a chance to post here yet. I've honestly been reading through all of the forum posts to get caught up. Gotta say, I love the forum. Don't know how I've missed it for this long.
A quick about me..
I'm from Grand Rapids, MI. I've been carrying since they changed the law. I was one of the first to stand in line at the County SD to get my forms.
I believe carrying concealed is a lifestyle and you have really be into it to do it right. You shouldn't just carry one day because your going into a bad neighborhood. Its about conflict avoidance and being prepared for what might happen to you or your family.
For fun, I'm into ham radio, shooting and spend a lot of time helping in the community. I would love to find others from around Grand Rapids to communicate with.
Thank You for the forum and for having me here.

The purpose of fighting is to win.
There is no possible victory in defense.

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.
