    Hello all. I was invited to this site by Taurus. I mentioned to Taurus that the recent Silver Comet Trail incident has me worried about the safety of my wife and daughter. I was thinking about purchasing a sidearm for me and my wife but I am worried about the carry and conceal laws. You'll have to excuse my ignorance because I honestly know nothing about gun laws and not much about guns either. I am here to learn. Thanks!

    Also, notice there is a search function just above the threads. Feel free to ask any questions you want on any thread already existing or start your own.

    You won't find anyone here attacking you just for asking a question.

    Step one is to get your firearms license, though, because without it, you cannot carry outside of your home, automobile, or place of business, and carry in your automobile is restricted without the license.

    Since the counties are taking 4-6 months to issue, sometimes longer (although people are working on fixing that), there is no better time than the present to apply to get your license by next spring.
    :lol:


    You can find out where to go, how to do it, and even the process for your county by clicking on the yellow "Firearms License" tab at the top of this page.

    Hey Sparky. Welcome. I'm a newbee to this also. Just applied for my GFL yesterday. I don't even own a handgun yet, but with the time it takes for some counties, I'll have lots of time to pick one out and take it to a range.

    I know how you feel about Silver Comet. I take my three boys out there, and sometimes my wife comes too. We usually drive to the Coots Lake trailhead or at the Chamber of Commerce trailhead. I won't let them go alone. Sorry to blather on....

    :welcome:

    howdy, dont be afraid to search and ask any question. These guys are nice for the most part,...aside from the joking once you are around for a bit....kidding, its the best forum I have ever been on. Very knowledgable people giving accurate and quick responses.
    Not to mention a good break in the day from work!

    If you are still around, now would be a pretty good time for post #2! and if you are still around, :welcome: To GPDO! And, if you are not still around, it won't matter what else I post on this topic.
