Great forum you got here Bumper. I've been lurking here for weeks now and decided to introduce myself. I've been carrying with a CCW permit, on and off now, for about 12 years. I took a job near DC about three years ago working for the government as a mechanical engineer. Prior to that I spent about five years getting my college degree and eight years in the army as a combat engineer & paratrooper. Most of my hobbies revolve around firearms, cars and other mechanical things.
