    An Introduction from Oklahoma

    I am a retired police Officer in Oklahoma, U.S.A. and have carried a concealed firearm most of my adult life. Upon leaving Law enforcement I obtained all required permits for concealed carry.

    I fall into the majority of police officers and ex-police officers who have never felt threatened by the idea of a law abiding citizen carrying a concealed firearm in my presence.

    I always thought a conscientious officer conducted himself with the presumption that people were likely armed and allowed the circumstances to dictate his response to that presumption.

    I recently had the pleasure of guiding my oldest son through the permit process in our State.

    This has probably been mentioned elsewhere in the forum, but if you are an Iphone or Ipod user they have an App called CHL (Concealed Handgun License) that contains reciprocity information for all 50 states. I think it is free or at most a buck or two and pretty handy for travel. It can be found in their app store. I like it but I have no financial interest in it. This is offered as an informational rather than commercial notice.

    I hope this suffices as a proper introduction to this forum.

    that definitely suffices

    Welcome from the Ozarks. Thanks for your service to society. Great tip about the app. I have been carrying a three ring binder with the various states guns laws. It is a pain.
