Was raised in California, but I live in Texas now. I've lived a a lot of other places while in the military.
Fellow member over at Sigforum.com recommended I check this site out.
Got my CCW permit the moment I stepped onto Texas soil (ok the moment I purchased a house on Texas soil).
At first I thought I would only carry when I was going to high-risk environments, but have learned that it makes more sense to carry all the time.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to sharing information on CCW with all of you.
