Hello from Free New England (i.e. NOT MA, CT, or RI)

I'm an old gun enthusiast (both long time and chronologically 'old') who enjoys the freedom to carry "personal protection devices" [that's what they call them at border crossings into nearby Canada!] here in northern New England (i.e. ME, NH, & VT). I've carried concealed for decades, but only recently decided to try revolvers. First one was a S&W 642, a nice gun but so light & small that it makes the humble .38 feel like a 20mm round. I started to look at the Kimber K6s when I realized that some adjustment was needed if I were to both conceal a small firearm and control the recoil when firing it. The K6s accomplishes both goals admirably and...that trigger! Nothing like somewhat clunky S&W (not Pro-Series). It's a handsome gun and the 4" sight aperture means I can actually hit something without training to Jerry Miculek's level of competence!

Jack welcome to the site from Tennessee. Sometimes for a change of pace I have been known to CC a revolver but it is usually a Charter Arms .44spl Bulldog or .38spl Police Undercover.

Welcome Jack. I'm a transplanted woodchuck myself. Crossed that border many times in my youth to pick up a case of Brador or Molson Ale or just to head to the Forum for a concert. Wasted more than a few Canadian dollars on St Catherine Street in those days too.

I'm sad to see VT moving towards "common sense" gun control. I used to think that would never happen in a state full of deer hunters and outdoors people.

But I guess with a city that could elect "Bernie" as Mayor when he unabashedly ran as a Socialist, I shouldn't be surprised.

Welcome to the site. Mostly nice people here......... )
