    Hi from Michigan

    Hi from the over-educated confines of Ann Arbor. I'm a Spartan by the way. 46 years old, lifelong but not life member of NRA. Just got my CPL in mail last week and have been carrying whenever not on the job (explicit policy against firearms anywhere on property). I'm a medical technologist working in solid organ transplantation. Married 25 years with 3 kids only one left at home. No LEO or Military service. My late dad was a Marine though so I guess that makes me half-human. Primary carry is Kimber Pro Carry II and secondary is S&W 642. I'm probably more of a lurker than a poster and have been learning plenty here. Very impressive is the mutual respect and civility displayed in the posts here. That's not the case on many forums, although gun owner as a rule seem to be a higher form of being compared to your typical head in the sand hoplophobe. Well, thats probably enough about me. Hope to talk again soon.

    Welcome from South Carolina.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Welcome from Big Sky Country.


    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.

    Like it alot better with the Spegel Boot Grips. Carries nice in the front pocket. Recoil is attention grabbing with FBI loads though. Carrying with a Nemesis till my Pocket Concealment systems holster arrives.
    Good accuracy and no internal lock. guess I'll have to settle for the safety between my ears.
