    Hi! I'm Bob K from Western Mass.

    Though I have had a carry permit for more than a few years, I still consider my self a rookie at this stuff. I don't feel particularly threatened in my life, but I am retired and 60. (Never thought about being this old!!!!) I carry an old S&W M-36 2" sometimes, just to even the odds, should I run into some "young toughs" in my travels about my area. I live just north of the Hartford-Springfield-Holyoke area, known for gang-drug related crime. It seems fairly safe on this side of the mountain.

    I'm looking forward to learning something from you guys, but I won't have too much to say....since I am a rookie. Bob

    Welcome from Big Sky Country, Bob.


    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.

    Rudyard Kipling
