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.

Welcome from a fellow new member, and I gotta ask my first question on this forum.....
you said you have a pre-ban Glock 30...I just got my new 30 last weekend.....what exactly is a 'pre-ban' 30? or is that something thats specific to your state?

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?

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.
