    New Gal from North Texas

    Hello everyone!

    I would like to introduce myself, my name is Juanita, I'm 60 years old, and l work as a consultant in the IT-Telecom field. Here is a bit of background about myself. Last year I started reading books like Female and Armed, Staying' Alive both by Paxton Quigley and decided for self protection I wanted to lean more about guns and how to shoot them correctly. I had bought a PPK/S 380 to qualify for my CHL and now I try to shoot at least 3 times a month at the range and attend gun shows when they are in my area. I also belong to the NRA, so I guess you could call me a pistol packing Granny! Love reading this forum and really appreciate the great feed back!

    Welcome to the forum. The ladies that we have here are great. I love to hear about weapons and tactics from their point of view. I teach CC to almost exclusively females and it helps to understand how they think and what their needs and desires are in ref to CC. I find that more women carry a concealed weapon than most people would think. Again,WELCOME. ----------

    What sort of rig do you use for your PPK/S?

    Welcome Juanita (texbell1 !!) from another in North Texas. Frisco is a nice city! Glad to see more women CC. My wife and I both shoot, both have are CHL's, and love seeing more of the same in Texas.

    This is a great forum with helpful, informative moderators and members that have tolerated this new guy with grace.
