    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.

    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.

    Thanks! I love Montana and Idaho. My daughter married a great guy from Helena and has lived there for almost five years. Having been born and raised in South Florida, it took her a while to adapt, but she loves it. If the economy goes further south, I may move up there myself. Can't beat the hunting. Lotta big bore shooters there, too, which I enjoy.

    Absolutely. Safety is a state of mind.
