    New from Los Angeles County

    Hey All,
    I've surfed across this forum many times in the last few years and decided to join yesterday because I really wanted to read some posts and couldn't get to them without an account. I don't CCW because frankly I'm 27, live in Los Angeles County and don't think it's even a possibility for me, just based on what I've read and heard (basically that it's very hard unless you're a gunsmith or a jeweler etc), despite one or two potentially qualifying attributes (just not sure if they would be good reason). I am however very interested, and pro-gun. Growing up in some of the not-so-good parts of town, as a kid I had a gun pulled on me on two occasions. As an adult, it almost happened but I didn't stick around to find out (I'll probably post this situation in the "what would you do" section). I work in I.T, and have done so for the last 10 years but am an aspiring LEO as I have a burning desire to do something that makes a more meaningful contribution (for me) to society. I've got 4 kids, I'm married and like learning more about many aspects of self protection when I'm not working, in school or of course being a dad. Thanks to everyone contributing to make this forum a great one, I'm certainly impressed with it and hope to contribute also.

    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    Welcome from South Carolina...Good luck in your pursuits...Stay safe..
    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.
