    New Member in the Wilkesbarre Scranton area!

    Hey guys, just saying hello from mountain top PA. Hoping there are some nearby members on here! Currently in the market for my first handgun that will legally be mine as I turn 21 in a few months! For a little background I am a fire fighter in my community and am friendly with most of the local LEO's, for that reason I am hoping me starting to open carry responsibly will go smoothly and I won't have to be so nervous about it!

    I'm in the Wilkes-Barre area myself. If you ever want to meet up, and walk around town to hand out flyers let me know!

    Was not there a Pittsburgh Plate and Glass plant in your area? They stamped TV picture tubes there.

    How is OC in that area? I grew up (3rd grade through graduation) in Tunkhannock but left shortly thereafter for college and never did make it back that way. I often wonder how the smaller towns around there respond.
    "The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good" - George Washington
    "Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest." - Mahatma Gandhi

    As always, insert standard IANAL disclaimer here.

    I have only been asked to leave the mall as it's private property, and they don't allow weapons. Police did not try to ID me. Didn't ask me for any info. They even let me finish my subway. That has been my only run in so far. I have been OC since October when I turned 21. Once the warmer weather hits I get out a lot more I'll see where it goes from there.
