Newby from Upstate NY

Hi Gang,
I'm from Webster, NY. I bought my first pistol, a Kimber Ultra Carry 45 back in 2000 after getting advice from a now long gone friend, a Vietnam vet who introduced me to this whole new world. My EDC is a the much smaller Kimber Micro 9 since I was going to EDC and needed something that would conceal better then the 45 in our hot, sticky summers. Using a Desantis pocket holster I have not had anyone look at me odd or ask questions. This includes in my suit and tie job. I also have an Springfield XDs 9mm because I really liked it, though it was about the same size as my 45 so why bother? Lastly (for now...) I have a Browning Buckmark 22lr for cheap but good shooting. Long time married, many grandkids, was an automatic transmission specialist forever and am now a Realtor going on 10 years. Glad to be here!

I read that somewhere in NY State, they are having a gun show.
That's great.
The world's largest was held this weekend in Tulsa Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is a super gun friendly state. Takes about 20 minutes to buy a gun, if you don't have any hiccups in your background check (done on the internet).
Lot's of places to shoot. Several of my friends have their own ranges and I'm finishing work on mine.
1,000 or more are not uncommon because of the amount of land suited for shooting/hunting.
What's it like where you live? Places to shoot and laws?
Ok is a carry state. If you have your license, concealed or open is just fine.
