    Post New Guy - 12-31-2007 - Firefighter194

    Just wanted to say hello to everyone. Just found this site and its pretty interesting. I have just recently decided to practice this right of ours to carry. To be honest with you I never thought I would, but after all the shootings at malls and of all places churches. I decide it was about time to have some way to protect my wife and I with out having to rely on a LEO....



    Anyways, I just put in for my CWP because I think I will feel more comftorable CC'ing, but its nice to know if I dont want to CC I can carry open!!!:celebrate

    Welcome to the board....

    You will learn a ton of stuff here... Always remember to always verify informationyou receive here for yourself.

    We are not always 100% correct but often times have a good idea. Often times we will actually provide you with a cite so you can read things for yourself.

    Believe nothing that you read or hear unless you verify it yourself or it fits your pre-existing world view.

    Welcome, 194! Also, look into joining VCDL. They do a lot for us here in Virginia.

    Welcome, firefighter.

    Don't let the occasional "mine is bigger than yours" spats about LEOs, political candidates, or individuals' actions get to you. Most threads that go more than 2 pages are worth ignoring (IMHO).

    But there are some fantastic insights here, some really fine, upstanding people, and a lot of fun to be had.

    OC, CC - that's up to you. I'm pleased to see you will be accepting the responsibility for protection yourself and your family. Remember, practice, both physically and mentally, and have fun.

    Aaah....hay guy. You welcomed him over 4 1/2 years ago on this same thread!

    Your previous post is just two before your latest greeting. A good rule of thumb is to read the thread first, post afterward.

    Well marriages can be a lot like Wal-Marts..........easy to get into, but much harder to get out of AND you'll leave some of your earnings behind too

    But did we say "Welcome" to crossfireltd?

    He's newer than Firefighter194.

    I don't recall seeing either of them at an OC breakfast or OC dinner. Anybody know how come they have not shown their faces?

    stay safe.

    Now that's funny. On a related note, how do people even drag up these old threads?

    In this case I think he was away from the forum for a good while and maybe had a saved email notification on a shut down computer. The he hooked it up again and walla, there's a thread response notice.

    Either that or he used that great big digital dart board where you can check all of the threads on OCDO.

    I hope he doesn't think we're all that upset with him - I thought it was funny

    Hey, I'm not drivin' this bus and I've got to sit part way back near the door - might need to exit quickly if the questions get too tough
