New member

I am new to this community. Being 66 years old, a veteran and have concealed carry now for three years. I am a member of USCCA. I have not participated in any self defense training (I know, my bad) and just learned today that the next USCCA expo will be in Kansas City in 2020 and I do plan to attend that and am looking forward to going. Got interested in CC when my daughter talked me into taking a CC class with her. No regrets. Now I have purchased a small autoloader for my wife and am working with her to teach her to shoot. All for fun. Looking forward to learn from all of you even though I don’t have much to contribute. My mind is like a sponge and desire to soak up all I can from all of you.

Welcome @Patrick3, you’re in the right place! Glad you’re here!

Thanks. I have been following for the past week or so but never got my bio out there for review. I have enjoyed what I have been reading and look forward to rubbing elbows with like-minded, responsibly armed citizens.

Welcome, KS is good country if you can stay out of the cities HA!

I’ve spent a lot of time around Eureka, Wichita, and over in west, particularly SW KS on good bird years.

KC area has some great ranges and gun clubs too.

Welcome. I did some work with a couple of FFL units back in the 80’s and developed much respect for the French SF’s.
