    Greetings from Michigan!

    I stumbled upon this forum about a month ago as I began thinking about applying for a CPL. I found a number of sites around but this one has loads (pun intended) of good information on it and from what I have read thus far, a seemingly great group of folks! Thanks to whomever was responsible for getting this off the ground.

    I have been around firearms since I was a young boy (I am now 38) but have only recently begun thinking seriously about carrying one on my person. I took my CPL course a week ago Saturday and sent in my application on Monday. If all goes as planned, 6-8 weeks from now I will not only be a card-carrying member of the CPL club but will no longer be forced to keep my arm in shape and ready to throw rocks at 1000 fps! Since this is primarily a "meet-me" thread I will save the details and deeper thoughts for another day and another thread. However, I have four very good reasons for wanting to carry. I could tell you, but I'd much rather show you!

    Welcome from Pennsylvania. That's a beautiful family you have there, and one of the best reasons to carry!

    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.
