    Greetings from the Gunshine State...

    I recently began practicing my 2nd Amendment right about two weeks ago. I had always been meaning to get a firearm but finally got around too it after dabbling with pacifism in my younger days (It happens...). I picked up a Kahr MK9 w/ Crimson Trace Laser grips. Put a 100 rounds through it (100 more to for breakin period) and wow, it was love at first pull.

    At the most recent gunshow in Orlando I took the Conceal Weapons class so in a few months I'll be getting the permit. Better late than never I guess. In the meantime, I keep the weapon in a safe in my car (not for quick access, just to have it relatively with me until permit arrives (getting holster soon). I'll use the next couple months before I am able to carry to do some more research, try to pick out a carry holster, basically, just get ready...

    I'm almost finish reading the Gutmacher book on the Florida Firearms law. Next I think I might look into a book on Knives or close-quarter combat, we'll see. Just thought I'd say hello, I have been reading through the scenario forum, trying to take in as much experience as I can. See ya around...

    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.
