    Recovering Californian

    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.

    Welcome to the forum Blinky.

    What do you carry and what did you do in the military?

    I was a military linguist - Russian, Serbian, and Croatian. Served eight years (SSG).

    I carry a SIG P239, NAA Guardian .25NAA.

    It's good to see someone else has decided to leave the Republik of Kalifornia and move back to the U.S. I remember living there back in the early/mid 70's when it was still considered part of America.
