    Florida

    Just wanted to say hello to everyone for the first time. I have browsed through posts for weeks now. They are informative and entertaining. I feel privileged to have ccw in Florida as I have discovered from others out of state that they have more restrictions. I am 8mos. now into having my ccw license and it has given me a sense of freedom. I didn't pursue this CWP to save the world. It is only a last resort while all other security measures fail. I have gotten to the point that I don't know I have a firearm on me. The funny thing is that my spouse has no idea I carry while out of the house. I guess it is my test to let me know if I print. I have this problem, I can't seem to go to a gun shop and not leave without purchasing something. Does anyone have the same problem?

    I thought reef aquaria was expensive! This is an expensive hobby! It is nice to know that it really isn't paranoia I have. If so, then there are many out there like me here in Florida. I just know that mental illness and illicit drug use are a bad combination and seems to be the trend in news. There is no reasoning with crazy sometimes! You can't change crazy! What are your thoughts?

    from Ga. Welcome to Dc.

    I have the same problem at the GS. My answer to the problem is, I don't enter one until I'm ready to purchase, this is due to my compulsive gun buying addiction.

    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.
