    Hello from the U.P. of Michigan

    I am new to the ccw community being as I am only 21. I currently carry a Glock 19 as my EDC. Yet where I am bears have become a big problem so when I am out of the city I carry a Glock 20.

    I have been looking around and am impressed with what I have seen so far. It is nice to find a forum without the whining and bickering that is so common in the other forums that I have looked at.

    I am currently looking for a new ccw pistol and am looking for suggestions. I am looking for a compact pistol that is easier to conceal then my Glocks. Looking forward to any help I may receive.

    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.

    Welcome from Illinois. My mom's family is from the UP originally.

    Are you a student or could you actually find a job up there?

    Welcome from Lansing!

    Don't worry, I still have my Upper Citizenship. Got it when I was around 2 years old, and I renew it every couple of years!
