Hi @Thomas53, you are definitely in good company here. @Robert8 has it correctly, my husband was Special Forces in Vietnam. And we’ve got a surprisingly high number of women here as well. Hope you will both find a conversation and jump in :grin:

Ex military, Pro 2A, open to debate almost anything. I firmly believe in the Constitution , in its entirety, not just what benefits me. All of it, to me it is a living and breathing document.

I met a couple of new people while I was waiting for some paperwork. They were new to CC so I asked them if they had heard about the USCCA (as I pointed at my shirt).

I gave them both a brief explanation of what it was and told them there is no cost to check it out and at the very least they should joint the community for some great conversations and information in a safe non threatening environment.

I think we will have some new members soon :wink:

Thanks John. Appreciate it!

Hey Guys:
My name is Anthony Marchese and I live in Florida. I’ve been carrying a firearm for several years. I am by no means an expert. I’ve been shooting since I was a kid. I used to shoot regularly as a teenager, but I went several years totally away from the firearms community because of finances, life commitments, and living in a city (NY) that makes it extremely difficult to legally own. I always feel like a novice when I’m around guys who really know their stuff. With that in mind, be ready for some possibly stupid questions. I feel like I have so much to learn yet. I want to join the USCCA, but still dealing with short finances.
I hope I can learn more on this site and when I can contribute something from my life experience I hope I can make a difference to someone.
