I'll be 60 next month and have had a permit since I was 21. Just thought I would be a responsible gun owner and if I wanted to carry I could. Only had to pull a gun once and it scared away the bad guy.

I was 40 and I can thank Obama, thought I would get it before he took that right from me.

We seem to have a serious problem with new member who choose to use the word Glock anywhere in there screen name.

Given recent rants and the resulting locked threads associated with them I feel that we, as a community must identify and deal with this issue. I'll leave the treatment options up to the wisdom of our illustrious moderators BUT would offically like to classify this new phenomenon as...

"Panties in a Bunch Syndrome" or PBS for short.

I got mine just a couple years ago, never had the money to do it till then. As far as why, personal protection for myself and my fiancée when we're out. And FL is no innocent state, if you don't carry in the "Gunshine State" something is wrong.

I was 23. It was just after that nut job took a shotgun to the SLC mall back in 2007 and killed 5 people before the cops made sure "he got his." I don't go to SLC much, but one of my favorite restaurant's happens to be in that mall. The Rodizio Grill. Awesome. "Ain't no whack job gonna go messin up my supper. " And let us not forget, Hillary was runnin for president...

The only thing that i will say is that i participated in this thread without being disrespectful to nobody (exept with
Stupid gun laws). I just wanted to share the experience i had in getting my permit to carry which was the original theme. I did not mean to start any controversy or conflict. However expresions like "you live in a bubble" which was not related to the thread, are, in fact, disrespectful (even if i have a wrong idea like Tack thought i had when he implied that i thought PR was a state). Maybe I should not have taken as a personal insult but that is because i am an educated man who came from below and hate to be treated as dumb, maybe more than any insult, so i felt the need to defend myself. I would love that an intelligent moderator take a look at this thread so he or she can see who is the one or the ones with "the problem". I also hope moderators are as woried as i am for issues other than usernames, such as prejuice and bullying...

Seriously, elglockeroloco30...calm down. Tack was just being funny with the burst your bubble comment. He and Marlinman have been around a long time. I dont remember reading anything bullying from either of them. Some of us here just have a sense of humor. Don't get offended.

Oh i bullied the trolls...a little. But the one that kept coming back w hnadles like c3isafag is the one im refern to and he lit my fuse w his gun advice question then throwing a tantrum. And i wasnt being mean just trying to lighten the mood a little.
