    Hello From NY

    Hello,
    I've been lurking here for a month or so. I live in Orange County, New York. I got my NY pistol license in 1979 when I was 20. Carried my guns mostly for plinking, and general outdoor fun use.

    My wife suddenly mentioned last summer that she would like to get a pistol permit, so she went for it. She got it in a little over 3 months, not bad for around here, but not so good in general.

    My guns have been mostly for fun, but times are changing and I think it's time to also routinely carry for protection. So that brings me here. I researched a few guns, carry methods and general attitudes/recommendations on carry. Lot's of great info here. I ended up getting very interested in the right to carry and the widely variable and sometimes unfair firearms laws around the country.

    So that's the story. I just wanted to check in and say hi.

    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.
