Hi everyone
Been lurking for awhile but decided I should say hi and introduce myself.
I am relatively new at concealed carry but am very interested in doing it. I just picked up a new CZ rami 9mm yesterday for summer. Pretty nice little gun. Had a few fail to feeds today for the first few mags but then it seemed to due well for next couple hundrend rounds.
I think it should work well for a good CCW.
Been alternating between a G17 and FNH FNP-40 over the winter but they are just too hard to hide when only wearing a t shirt.
I am lucky enough to live in VT where I am FREE:smile:
I grew up in MA and now realize how lucky I am up here. I tried to get a LTC class A there when I turned 21. I was told that I did not have enough reason for it and that I could only get a class B license. :rant:
So, thats me
James:bier:

Hey everyone,
thanks for the welcome!
I am limited in my circle of friends on who likes guns. Some do, some are indifferent and, of course, some really don't like them. I think this forum gives us all a place to gather to talk about issues without having to guard our thoughts and to get feedback about our behaviors.
I have yet to formally inform my girlfriend that I carry so I am trying to find the right way to tell her. I generally don't carry when I am with her but I want to. This past winter we were walking back together from downtown (.5 miles from our house) when a car full of guys drove by and one yelled out " hey, I f****d that b****". I yelled back on impulse and anger. They stopped the car, backed up, and yelled some other nicety out the window, then took off.:boese51
Needless to say, I was quite nervous when the car stopped and backed up. There were three or maybe four people in the car. All I had on me was a 3" CRKT knife. I took karate for six years but still, 3-4 people. What if one had a gun? That freaked me out enough that I try and have one of my guns on me as much as possible. I am a grad student so I cant take it with me to the university so that freaks me out a bit as I do tend to walk or take the bus (1 mile from home). My point to this is that my girlfriend is not fond of my guns but understands that I have them. She doesnt really know that I carry. I know I should let her know but...well, you guys know how hard it is to argue about it with your wife or girlfriend...right?
Any suggestions about breaking it to her without a fight?
Cheers: :hand28:
James
