I'm a late bloomer, and didn't buy my first handgun until around 2011. A friend took me to the range, and it brought back the enjoyment of shooting. Now I have a plethora of firearms, including a brace of handguns.

I open carry nearly everywhere I go. As a result of wanting to do something where I would not be denied my right to carry, I created my own business and carry at work on a daily basis. The boss never says anything, because I'm the boss!

After getting into handguns, I stumbled across this forum and have been a member since 2011. It's a great place to share experiences and learn about our rights and the laws that tend to infringe them.

Before I became an avid carrier, I'd experienced 2 burglaries and been held up at gunpoint once while doing my former job. Those are experiences I never wish to repeat, and have made changes in life to protect me and my family.
