    Thumbs up New Member from MN

    Hey folks, new member from Minnesota. I've been lurking for a couple weeks. I'm taking my CCW permit class sometime next month (May) and will be carrying a G22 loaded with Federal Hydrashock. I've got a Serpa Level 2 holster for OWB carry, have yet to find (or look for!) an IWB hoster.

    I've attached a couple images from my exploits at the range. First (single shot) target is a slow-aim. Second is the other 49 rounds of a 50 round box in fairly quick succession. Not shooting from the hip, exactly. All were at 7 yards.

    I'm not a law enforcement officer at this point, but will probably be one of those 40-something folks who changes careers.

    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.
