53 y.o.......my 25 year old son and all of his buddies carry, and I thought it was silly. Then I started thinking just how much my area has and was changing, both around home and in areas of everyday life, so I went out and got mine.

I carry 98% of the time now.

21 when i got discharged from the Corps. Even though in MO your supposed to be twenty three. That was almost two years ago. In 6 daus when i go to renew it that wont matter though. And the reason is because im seeing more and more bad sh!t happen everyday. Grew up around guns and even carried a ruger single six on the farm since i was 9. So i guess you could say its an old habit i dont want to break. Josh and wray-do i need to find you old fellars a wheel chair?

God didnt make all men equal colonel sam colt did

Default I was 67

I got it because I wanted to, and could. Since then I haven't been out of the house without a pistol.
