I have the utmost respect for our country’s older generations, especially veterans! With age comes wisdom!!! Younger people can learn a lot from older wiser people.

Welcome Boyd. I too am in my early 70’s. I used to go hunting as a kid with my grandpa and uncles when I lived in Illinois. I have my grandpa’s 12 gauge shot gun that he gave me before he passed away. Miss going hunting.

Howdy! I joined the USCCA a few months ago on the advice of a good friend,. I carry pretty much anytime I walk out of the front door. Just found this forum today, so… I try to take a class from a different trainer every year, have been remiss the last couple of years, looking to start doing that again. Looking forward to chatting with you.

Hi everyone! My name is Sue and I’m currently living in OH. I grew up around firearms of all kinds. I’ve been carrying concealed for about 2 years, and shoot weekly at the range . I carry a 9mm Sig Sauer 365, but like to switch it with a 9mm Glock 48 now and then.

Welcome to the Community @SueS! Glad to have you here! So you’re a Glock AND a Sig person? Rare bread! :slight_smile:

@Dawn I’ve caught a bit of flak from my Sig buddies, but my Glocks are fun to shoot! (After I put decent sights on them, that is!)

I’m restraining myself from giving people grief about Glocks, @SueS :laughing: I’ve only shot one and that was a long time ago. I need to revisit them as a brand.

Hope you’re finding a lot of great conversations to jump into, Sue!

Welcome @Boyd and @SueS,

You have found your way to the BEST Firearms and Self-Defense Community on the WEB!

We are very welcoming and we love to share… Information that is. :wink: We have so many Topics to choose from if you are interested in learning something new or just want to communicate with people about… ANYTHING. Conversely, we love to get new information too, so if you know something that you think we haven’t heard before then drop it in a category or if that category does not exist, just make one and put it there. I am sure that someone will stumble over it and find it of interest.

So find a Category and Topic and Dive right in.

67-year-old, blue-collar sheepdog here. Been around guns and shooting since I was 10. Married (same wonderful woman for 45 years), 5 children (four girls and a boy), 11 (I think) Grandchildren. Moved to the most secure area I could afford and when I’m not working or playing, I’m watching out for my neighbors. Carry constantly and while in the house always have something within arms’ reach. Politically active in the online way (respond to any alerts I get from either G.O.A or the N.R.A - I’m a Member of both) and also an OathKeeper Member. Looking forward to being part of this and learning alot!

Hi everyone, it’s about time that I take a moment and introduce myself. I’ve been on nurse duty for my better half as she had to have a hip replacement.
My name is Russ, and live in SoCal in south Orange county. I have been with USCCA for more than 5 years and have appreciated every bit of education and awareness regarding CC and personal safety information they have made available. Can’t say enough about the magazine for sure.
I’ve been around all manner of weapons my entire life. I admit I have a few safe queens but that’s because I really love them, but I have a handful of others. My usual daily is a M&P Shield 9 or Ruger LC9. I enjoy building 80%'s (rifle’s) in my spare time these days when not being with my lovely granddaughter.
I’m glad to be a part of such a great community here and look forward to sharing and learning from all of you here.
Just curious if anyone else has a jacked up shoulder that is or causes problems with your holster draw? My shoulder is slowly getting worse due to arthritis, tears, and a large bone spur. How is it affecting your draw? Have you changed anything?
@Dawn thanks for checking in on me via Twitter. And she’s doing great.
