Hey all. Fairly new to firearms, and brand new CPL holder from the suburbs of Detroit. Just wanted to introduce myself and say that the past few months reading topics on this site has done a lot to prep me for my first experience carrying.

I have to say that carrying daily is one of the most calming things I've ever experienced. It gives me the confidence to live my life knowing I have what it takes to protect me and my family. That 911 is no longer my one and only recourse.

I am a proud owner of three Springfields (9mm XD sub-compact, 45 ACP XD sub-compact, and 40 S&W XDM 3.8 inch service pistol, all of which I carry according to dress code) and two Rugers (357 LCR and the LCP, both for lighter days). My long guns include a DTI Sport AR-15, Mossberg 500 and Mossberg ATR 100 in 30-06 chambering.

Oh and I have a .22 heritage rough rider revolver for cheap fun.

Anyway, glad to be on board and to continue my learning.

Chris

Fellow (former) Detroiter

Hey Chris - Congrats. on the CPL. I was born in Motown, (Women's Hosp., now Hutzel) and grew up on the "East Side". Graduated in '67 & moved out about 2 mos. later. (Right after the riots). Don't know what suburb you're in, but I'm sure I'm familiar with it, especially if it's East of Woodward, & I certainly understand why you got a CPL. Was sure glad when MI became a "shall issue" state. Again, congrats. & hoping you never HAVE to use your CW.
