    Hi from North Cntral Florida

    Not new to guns; but definitely new to CC. I have my Florida CCL. I have been around, owned and on occasion carried for over 50 years. Lived on the “dirty side” (NYC & Sullivan Act) and on the “shaky side” (LA the land of those wonderful folks who gave us bangers, car-jacking and home invasion).

    I have had weapons for home defense for more years than I care to remember and carried a weapon, in the car, for the last 15 (totally legal in FL, without a license). It just seems that over the last several years the BG’s are looking for softer targets and have become more violent during the commission of their crimes. As I no longer live in the big cities or even a smaller city with the close benefit of a PD or SO, I have come to the decision that “God helps those who first help themselves.

    I am looking forward to being able to ask questions and learn from folks on this board who are far more experienced, with CC, than I am.
    May you be in heaven 30 minutes, before the devil knows your dead!

    Ghost Host,

    I've been to McIntosh. There is no such place.
