    Greetings from the dirty Vegas...OR soon!

    Hi all, just joined up today...thus far this looks like an active and informative place...

    Anyhoo, about me...I've been in Vegas for 6 years now but am on the verge of being relocated to Portland OR for work.

    Looks like the CCW laws (as we call them in NV) are similar in OR so am looking forward to carrying in OR when I get there and go through the certification process. OR residents please feel free to chime in here, I could use some feedback if there’s anything I need to know about the process up there…

    As bad as things can be here in Vegas, I've never had to draw on anyone, fortunately...the closest I've been I suppose to anything like that was when I swept my house after my alarm went off while I was at work...big fun lol...

    As you all know, 99.9% of personal protection is about awareness...using your weapon is the very last step in a series of things we can all do protect ourselves.

    I am also proud to say that I convinced my g/f to exercise her legal right to carry a few years ago…she works in a casino and carries large amounts of $ during the long walk to/from her casino's employee parking lot. Also got her a pink taser a few years ago...you know women and their need to accessorize lol...there's no shortage of scumbags here that would do just about anything to get their hands on easy $ from a small woman...they're in for a surprise or two if they try to get the drop on her lol, but I digress...

    Oh and if you're wondering, I carry an 9mm HK P2000 SK 99% of the time, modified w/a custom grip and a trigger pull of 2lbs…nice and light! Traded a Mossberg SPX autoloader and a Glock model 19 for it, a fair deal in my book. The other 1% of the time I carry my FNH 5.7...which is a fantastic weapon if you're considering one...20+1 capacity, very light and incredibly accurate...just a bit too big for everyday carry in my opinion. Plus after squeezing the HK’s trigger so many times I can hardly tolerate the feel of the 5.7’s factory trigger…

    I also own an FNH PS90, a Mossberg 17 HMR and Marlin .22 LR for plinking…that gun has sentimental value as it was the first gun I ever bought, the day I turned 18…ah how time flies…

    Oh and about the 17HMR…perfect gun for Tannerite! Those that know Tannerite are probably getting a good chuckle right now lol…

    So thanks for having me, see you around!

    Thank you sir...OR is a well-kept secret, at least as far as I can tell.

    Absolutely beautiful up there...clean and 'normal' from what I can see in my few recent trips to the area...the opposite of Vegas, and that's just fine by me!

    Just check out my signature line. I carried at the NRA convention in Phoenix last month and ended up getting interviewed on NRA news on that topic.

    Ah...wow, no kidding...that's something.

    If I recall correctly, NV will issue to non-residents as well...amazing, you can carry in more states than I can, and most Americans lol.

    What a shame...needless to say, gun laws (yours AND ours) are nothing short of ridiculous, generally speaking.

    On the plus side of things, at least you're exercising your rights, as much as possible given the circumstances...

    You’re a case-study in the failed policies of our bureaucracies, my friend.
