Welcome to the Community! Please Introduce Yourself

wow that’s very interesting I just purchase a 380 Ruger and I definitely need to get my CCW but with this pandemic you’re not able to go in and actually take the physical course I’m looking for an online class which I know it’s going to take eight hours I can get involved with to speed up the process. I live in Missouri

Thank you for the loving welcome

Hey all, Hagan here. Happy to finally be part of this community and looking forward to learning a lot from you all! Some background - I’m new to the US (from South Africa originally) - we live in Colorado and love it out here! Never met more friendly and kind people.
Also a first-time gun owner. I’ve been impressed with the focus on safety first. I was quite nervous about handling a gun but have received nothing but first class training from the folks at Iron Horse Armory and Centennial Gun Club. So if you’re in Denver and you need some training to build your confidence and skills - hit them up. (I don’t work for them and they don’t pay me!)
Great to meet you all!

Hi, I retired from the Marines (24yrs) and am currently living in Maryland. Even though I can’t carry in MD, very frustrating, but I finally decided to join USCCA because my sons are getting to the age that I can start teaching them proper gun safety. I look forward to learning more and gaining better skills. Glad to be here. Thanks.

There is not an app for the site (yet) but you can view it on a smart phone. View the community on your phone through the web and then make a shortcut for it (almost as good as an app).

Unless something has changed and I have not heard about it Missouri is a Constitutional carry state. I do not believe (could be wrong but I dont think so) you need a permit to conceal carry in Missouri as a resident of the state.

The only reason you should need a permit is for reciprocity for other states when you travel.

My go to person for all things CC in Missouri is @Zee (she is extremely knowledgeable) but has not been online much during the stay at home orders (internet issues).

I am sure she will eventually get a chance to read this and I am sure she will respond to give you the answers you are looking for.

Ok, maybe I should start a new topic, if so Dawn move this…

Question:
Who is the best drummer of all time? To qualify this, not just who your favorite was or who was the most popular, but truly the best. Definition of best: Unique style, diversity of percussion used, live concert show, and of course ,lightning fast!

#2 Neil Peart of RUSH, not only did he play drums and other percussion but he was also the band lyricist. He was the first drummer I remember who had double bass drums. He was a libertarian and it was apparent in some of the lyrics he wrote. (The Trees)

#1 Carl Palmer of Emerson,Lake&Palmer, with his unmatched speed and diversity of instrumentation I have only found Neil Peart fractionally below Carl in the standings. He was the first drummer to incorporate his drumming into a synthesizer as apparent at the very end of the song Lucky Man (1970). That part of the song absolutely blew my mind, amazing. Carl could play a role on 2 drums/cymbals at the same time using both sides of the sticks , with both hands!

ELP was the first concert I ever saw. ELP in Cincinnati with a live orchestra to debut their Works I album.

Look up some youtube of both and tell me what you think. :slight_smile:
