Congrats on your CCL and welcome to a responsible and security-minded group of citizens.

I have a question....does them beer bottles have to be in one piece to be recycled? They do make great targets for shooting practice if you have the range space.

Unfortunately, yes, they do have to be in one piece for recycling around here, so sometimes I'll throw a few rocks in a plastic bottle and plink at that, but otherwise, I just use paper bullseye targets. We have a great range out here and are usually the only ones there.

You must be high-falutin'. Drinking that expensive bottled beer.
Good for you on the ccw.

I haven't received my custom DM Bullard holster yet, so when I went out yesterday, I carried my Ruger SR9 in my purse. Not wise. While I felt just wonderful having that extra protection on me, as I walked across a dark parking lot to pick up my Chinese take-out order, all I could think of was how useless my gun was in my purse.

I can hardly wait for my holster!!! This is great!


Michelob??? You are UPSCALE there lady! CONGRATS!!!

I went back to reread that since I was able to read it before, and now I cannot open it. NO access allowed? what;s up?

Congrats! My hope is that every gun owner that has their sh*t together, i.e. no freaky people, gets their ccw license. Multiple state if possible. It's great to own firearms and even better to be prepared by having a chambered round in a weapon that you can ccw almost everywhere, legally.

I applaud you on your decision, too. I've only once felt that I might have to use a weapon in self defense, and managed to de-escalate that situation, but it is comforting to know one has that option if needed. Right now I have both of my handguns on consignment with my local shop, and almost feel naked without one of them nearby. lol
I have a new one ordered, though, so maybe I won't be naked for long...
