Greetings from Central Florida...
I am a Miami refugee, having lived there for 36 years, mainly. Just found this forum as a link in another forum I belong to.
I am an NRA life member and an SCI member. I have strong personal beliefs about sustaining concealed carry, as I once used a revolver to defend myself from three thugs. Didn't have to fire it, but if I hadn't had it, only God knows what would have happened. That incident was the last straw that moved me north from Miami. When one has to pull a gun while walking his dog in front of his home, it's time to seek safer climes.
I live in a boring little town near Orlando. The winters are colder here, but the atmosphere is more conducive to personal safety.
Regardless, I carry my .45 or a back-up .357 Sig at all times. Someone still may mistake this gray haired old man as a soft target.
