    Thumbs up What I've learned at CombatCarry.com

    I've been here a little over a month have have been greatly enjoying myself. I try to add a comment when I think I can be of help and occasionally add something I think is funny in an attempt to lighten your day.

    Now I want to say thanks to the people here for the time spent and the help I've received. I've learned a great deal in what little time I've been around.

    Now, what I've learned:
    I've always tried to pay attention to what's going on around me, but reading through the threads here, I have found myself being more concious of my surroundings. I've noticed things around me as I go about my daily business that I hadn't before. I find myself playing "what if" and doing mental drills. "What if that guy pulls a gun out?", "What if that carload of deaf (they have to be deaf with the music that loud) gangster looking kids decides to check me out a little closer?", "What if...?" I've found exits I didn't know existed in stores I regularly patronize. I also know how the cell coverage is in these places, just so I know were I have to be if I need to make a 911 call.

    I've learned I'm not the only person around who thinks like we do. Not many people around me think like I do, but most of the people here are on my wavelength. If you find you are the only person who holds your beliefs, you start to think "It must be me that's not right in the head." Now I know I must be OK. (OK in a relative term I suppose.)

    There are many other things, but I won't bore you with them. Suffice it to say, I've spent a lot of time on this forum in the past month and it has been time well spent.

    Thanks to Bumper for the great site. Thanks to the moderators for keeping it cleaned up. And thanks to the members for keeping the moderator's job easy (that's me guessing at their job) and submitting posts to make such a helpful site. I'm happy here with my kind.

    Oh, yeah... and I love the dancing bananas...

    Nice post Copper. I second the "thank you". I have been a member for a few months. I sincerely look forward to reading everybody's post, gaining more knowledge, and getting to know the members.

    Copper - thank you from me - and I am sure Bumper will echo that.

    It is nice to know that folks do in fact benefit from all the assorted input - and it shows I think that we are a community, those who carry and take responsibility for their own well being.

    The accumulated knowledge and opinions will I reckon in most cases, manage to answer questions for those newer to the regimen and actually make us all stronger and even more responsible too.

    Great post, Copper! When you hear of all the bad things the internet is used for, it's nice to be reminded of all the good it does, also. I've met some great folks here. And yes, best of all --- you have to love those dancing bananas!

    I've learned more than I can list. I think the most beneficial for me is the overall knowledge of guns that I've acquired.

    And an added BUNUS that I've learned that it's OK to wear socks with sandals.

    KS Shooter - Thx for the mention re computer parts and donations - I think you will find tho that Bumper still chooses to run this from his own pocket, for which we are all most grateful.

    I am sure tho if needed at some stage there are many of us who would chip in to keep things afloat.

    I learn things everyday on this site! I love it. Whether they be from true stories, news stories, or information about CCW and 2nd Amendment rights! I have learned a great deal about what you can and cannot do once you have a CCW I never knew about before. I have learned that I do want my future Glock 19 from peoples threads. And I love love love reading all the success stories from people having CCW's.

    And....It's always fun to joke around about off topic things on the humor part, and discuss important issues on others. Many people supply useful websites with more information, and Combat Carry is a very nice friendly environment to be a part of!

    Thank you Bumper, P95Carry, Bud White, acparmed, QKshooter for making this forum possible!

    Here, Here!!! I too have learned a ton and best of all you can tell that there is a high moral character from most everyone here. Even if someone comes on here with a bit of an attitude they are still treated with respect and they usually see the error of their ways pretty quickly. I log on daily just to see what my new comrades are up to. Thank you all for the open and honest discussions and a place I feel really honored to be a part of.
