    Howdy from Colorado

    I've been lurking for a while and decided it was time I stepped up and joined in.

    I'm on day 44 of my wait, and have been told it will be the full 90 as allowed in Colorado. My county calls you back in for prints and pic, and I'm still waiting for that call as well. I've sent an email which has gone unanswered so far, and will call next week.

    Primary carry will probably be my USP Compact .40, and so far probably in a Bianchi owb with thumb break.

    What else about me, I'm a middle aged, bald, fat guy. Pretty typical, though fatter than most LOL.

    I"m looking forward to getting into IDPA, though as yet I haven't dragged myself out of bed early enough to make a match.

    Dave

    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.

    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.
