Ol' Jim here....

From Columbus, Ohio. I am working at being retired. That is to say, I have a job so I can afford to not work...no, that wasn't right....
I carried a Colt .45 as an Army MP for seven years and as a small town cop for eight. I spent twenty three years as a corrections officer, and then was medically retired after a traffic accident. I have carried concealed for nine years, plus the civilian police years. I presently own an LC9S Pro 9mm, my winter carry, and just got a Kimber Micro Carry for my summer carry. I previously owned a Springfield XDs .45 and a Keltec 3PAT .380. I carry all the time, everywhere.

I know!! I was surprised you let any of us in! My cheapest hobby is sitting in the Mall and seeing which old fart is carrying.

Welcome from Northern Ohio. Thanks for your service, PD service and lastly CO service. I hope you got out of the CO job with half of your sanity ! Thats an insane job. If only people knew what you went through being locked in with the roaches. Listen, when you go to the mall take a five pound magnet with you, and you'll easily find who's carrying !!!!

Thumbs up

Welcome Jim. From a retired LEO who used to patrol the Fresno streets.

Hey 'brew, not sure how "calm" this part of the state is. Maybe describing it as a lot less liberal than LA or the Bay area might be more accurate.
