    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    Here are a few of my carry tools. I just picked up the Glock 30 - these are fairly hard to come by in MA. I'm loving it so far, very accurate.

    The revolver is an S&W scandium .357mag snub-nose with crimson trace laser grips - I've been very please with it as well, although the close to $1,000 price tag was a bit much.

    Those will serve well MD tho - indeed the snub is ''lotta bucks''! Can't help thinking that the grips can be bought for around $179 IIRc so what does that make the gun price?!

    Anyways - you are well equipped and that is what finally matters. Thx for the pic.

    Yup, in MA any new gun must be approved (a BS process - backdoor gun control etc). For us, we can only buy glocks that were registered in MA before '98. So, while for most people, in most states glocks are pretty cheap - for us (espically for compacts) they are hard to find and expensive.

    In fact, there are tons of pistols we can't buy, for example, we can not buy ANY new kimber or ANY new H&K :( we can also not buy one out of state and transfer it in.

    We have real gun control here, it's unreal. Don't let it happen where you live. Never, ever vote democratic.

    Right now that are tying to force you buy lifeinsurance for each firearm you own Ibg bucks). They are also have recently tried to ban "cop killer" hollow points. Ammo taxes are another popular tactic here.
