    Bryan from Minnesota

    Bryan here - originally from Indiana, now living in Minnesota.

    I worked briefly in law enforcement in Indiana before getting lured over to the private sector where the money tends to be better ;)

    Was a permit holder in Indiana - and then unfortunately lived in several states where permits weren't being issues - or were "may issue" - such as Massachusetts.

    I recently got back into shooting and am taking my multi-state permit class this next weekend here in Minnesota. My trusty Glock 19 will likely be my carry weapon.

    In any event, have enjoyed being a lurker here for a few weeks and looking forward to learning more.

    Bryan

    Welcome from Montana, Bryan.


    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 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.
