    Going to apply for my CHP tomorrow, and as soon as that tax return comes through, I'm going to purchase MY first handgun. I write it like that, because I have friends that own and CC/OC, but I don't have my own.

    I'm going the revolver route, for now at least. I'm sure everyone agrees that
    more guns>less guns, but for a first, I'm going revolver.

    Because I'm a large guy. (large is an understatement) I have decided on a Ruger GP100. I want to CC/OC whenever possible, depending on the location. I have held several guns, and fired a few, Browning .45, my buddies Sig 228 9mm, some .380's, and found a nice medium frame revo. feels good in my hands. I have concealed a few in my younger (ignorant) days, and I like the feeling of a shoulder rig, and with my size, and the cold Seattle weather (right now) wearing a large coat is fine.

    I have several months to find a nice gun for extremely hot summer weather, and when that time comes, I will have plenty saved up and more experience. I would like to get one of those leather vests with the carry pocket. IDK yet.

    My buddy who is an ex army ranger suggested I start reading/posting on this site, and I'm happy he did.

    Questions/comments?

    Are you in Seattle? You should put your location under your icon tag.

    Hey Coupe ;

    Welcome !



    Your friend is right there IS a lot of useful information on this site everything from a "gun law library" to lists of businesses that don't exactly think too kindly of you carrying a slingshot in their places, let alone a firearm.



    Just read up on what you can and if you ever have questions, that's what we're here for.



    The pistol you have in mind is a nice choice! a lot will agree

    I just keep in mind - there may be an instance where I MAY or MAY not have to defend myself with more than 6 rounds.



    Just don't be that person shooting rounds into a fleeing car!!

    There's nothing wrong with OCD. We all have a form. Maybe us military have it a litte worse. It's USUALLY NEVER a bad thing.

    Little off topic. But yes. Washington calls it a C - concealed . P -pistol . L -license

    Hey all you new guys, don't forget to come to the Washington Arms Collectors gun show at the Puyallup fairgrounds next weekend ( 20th and 21st ). We'll have our new OCDO sing up. Come by and say hello, put faces to names.

    What do you need?

    I don't know that tune, can you hum a few bars?

    But serially, we do have gun shows over here on the dry side. Don't know if anyone else would be interested in having a table in Spokane but, if so, would it be possible to borrow the banner?

    I know C#, and VB.net and C#.net are practically the same with different grammar. What's your issue?

    Table for Puyallup show is not secured yet. The show is up in the air for me, I might have something else going that weekend. I'll know more Sunday night. Remember, we need donations for the table guys... M1Gunr, please post that donation link on this thread. I think it would be a good idea if any extra donations above what is needed for the table should go towards pamphlets.

    Table cost is $40.00

    Donation link thru paypal: washingtongunrights@gmail.com

    No matter what you have heard about paypal NOT being gun friendly, I can tell you I have had no issues using my paypal card to buy my last several guns from Mary's Pistols. I also got 1% back on every purchase. My last 3 guns earned me enough to buy a box of ammo.

    Right when I saw the list of places, I was a little excited. I stay near Beths Cafe, and go to the Sharis on Aurora often. Good to know that OC is welcome there.

    And you're right, about the 6 rounds. the last time I had trouble, it was with 9 BGs that thought using my face for a football was a cool idea. I will definitely be in the market for a nice semi auto as soon as the funds permit.
