    Smile Hi everyone!

    Runningman here...

    I'm another new guy. Been lurking for a few days and I liked the friendliness of the place and thought I'd stick around.

    About me: I've been carrying a concealed firearm legally (with permit) for about ten years, and I've made my share of mistakes. Maybe I can contribute once in a while. I'm a middle-aged white collar former Marine. I've taken some formal firearms training, but nothing very recent (should sign up for some recurrent). I've carried a compact Springfield 1911, Taurus PT-111, and a beautiful little Detective Special. Each has its place, and I can't complain about any. My favorite hobbies are camping, fishing, running, and shooting. I'm teaching my kids the same.

    About DC: Just happy to be here. Hope to contribute sometime. Thanks.
    Christian. Father. Marine.

    Welcome from PA. You are right. Some of the friendliest people you will find. Crazy part is that they carry evil guns.

    Welcome from South Carolina.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    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.
