    New guy from Florida!

    Hi folks,

    Can't remember how I came across this forum, but glad I did. So much experience and knowledge on here so far and I haven't even broken the surface.

    Been around firearms most all my life. Mother and Father both held CCL. I'm primarily a handgun guy, but own a few rifles and want more. I own several handguns. Don't know that I have a favorite. They all have a purpose. Current carry is S&W M&P .40 compact, but that changes every now and then depending on what I' wearing or where I'm going.

    I am a former Air Force weapons tech and have a son currently in the Marine Corps. He is deployed now so I stay a little on edge, but not too bad.

    Just wanted to introduce myself.

    Welcome from SE Florida! Thank you for your service from a bunch of us Vets! Retired jet engine tech here and my son is active duty Airborne getting ready to go back to the sanbox for the second time. It's just as hard being on the staying behind crew as it was on the leaving crew.
    Socialism tries to give the slave all the advantages of his security together with the benefits of freedom, and, in the process, destroys both the free and the enslaved.
