Hi-

I am a 70-year old "old newbie" from Michigan. "Old Newbie" because I used to "fool around" with guns 40 years ago, and am now getting back into it following a recent worrisome confrontation in a parking lot. I have owned several guns strictly for home defense (12ga., .38,.9mm),but never really considered carrying. The aforementioned encounter convinced me to be prepared to carry, should planned circumstances recommend. I am presently awaiting the issuance of my applied-for CCW; I am practicing weekly (weakly? :D ) at the target range, and was lucky enough to find and claim a new Walther PPS for my carry-arm. (My 40 year-old Browning Hi-Power is a bit too big to conceal; my 5-shot .38 snub-nose is a little too small for my taste.) I hope to learn a lot more about the ins and outs of armed self-defense from this forum.

Welcome from Denver! I'm waiting to get my CCW too. I am expecting to receive it around May 5th. :(

Welcome from the NW.

May I ask what city in Michigan that the encounter occurred?? Was this Detroit by any chance?
