    Hi everyone from Tampa, Florida

    Hey there guys and gals. Just found this forum and it looks like exactly what I was looking for! I'm an avid "mil-surp" rifle collector. I've been shooting pistols for years, but never really thought about carrying until recently. Not sure if it's the state of the economy; the socialization of our government; or maybe I'm just getting paranoid! But, I think it's time for everyone to take a stand and do what it takes to protect themselves and their families.

    Having said that, we don't need a bunch of knuckleheads running around with guns, who have no idea how to use them. Carrying a weapon is a huge responsibility, and proper training is very VERY important.

    Part of that training is talking to your "peers" to find out what they do; don't do; have done and gotten into trouble as a result Soooo... Here I am! I'm hoping to learn a lot from you folks and, hopefully, share a few ideas that you might find helpful as well.

    Here's to you! Hope to hear from you soon.

    Rick

    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.
