About me, well, I saw my 50th birthday a couple of years ago. Married nearly 33 years to a wonderful, beautiful woman, 2 grown "kids", a dog. Interests, I'm into Pontiacs, mostly GTO's. Still have my '67 GTO from my high school daze. I restore muscle cars and 50's classics for a living, so my Grand Prix will be my avatar for now.
Regarding my gun interests, I own an older ('96) Rossi 851 that I bought new. It's an excellent target gun, a stainless 4" w/adjustable rear sight. I recently acquired an S&W 642 Airweight. I've put a couple of hundred rounds through it since.
I got my concealed permit a few years ago, but the Rossi is too large for comfortable concealment, that's why I picked up the 642. Until recently I haven't carried. That's about to change, and that's why I'm here.
I don't have much to offer, so I'll be reading and picking your brains, if that's okay.
BTW, I'm considering a 40 cal. semi-auto next. Maybe a S&W M&P.
hey Steve, welcome to the forum! Looking forward to getting to know you!

Welcome from Montana, Steve.
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.
