Firearms are not required to meet. Don't let that hold you back. I know your situation from the other thread, don't be discouraged. I think must of us like to get together with other freedom loving folks.
Heh... I should actually have my gun here in a few more days. I ordered my smith and wesson M&P 40 on the 1st. Unfortunately, because of the holiday, the order didn't get processed till tuesday. The store manager told me that it should be in about the 10th or 11th but I then still have to do the background check. I'm also applying for my CPL come monday the 10th so I'll be able to CC and OC within a month.
