    I am new to this forum (never even realized OT had a weapons subforum really) and just wanted to say hey. Have been reading a lot of the stuff posted in here and it all seems pretty sound.

    Backstory: I have a few shotguns (my Dad gave them to me as a kid when we used to go pheasant hunting in NE), which are back home in CO. I have been shooting those for quite some time and definitely can't imagine my childhood being the same without a proper education in shooting. I am currently in the Bay Area, CA for college. I am also a pretty big knife fan and carry a Cold Steel Recon 1 on me daily (mostly because I am a stagehand and that entails lots of instances where having a knife on you is quite handy, but there is always the protective element about it).

    I plan to take a lot of training classes for handguns in the near future so I can a) learn to use a handgun effectively for protection and sport and b) so I can get my CCW back home once I turn 21.

    My name is Mike, by the way.

    Sup mang. You've been here for almost 4 years and never noticed WMD? LOL, wow.
    It was the first thing I went to when I signed up.

    I spend most of my time in the Mac Shack, OT and OTAH.

    Which still is a weak answer cuz Mac Shack is like right below this forum.

    Whatever the case may be, I am glad to be here. :wiggle:

    In the bay area, you can basically kiss getting a CCW goodbye

    Welcome :wavey: I didn't find WMD for a couple years after I joined OT so don't feel too bad.

    Now I barely post anywhere else.

    Aha, that would seem to be the problem. I do not plan to get a California CCW. My permanent residence is technically in Colorado since I am a dependent of my parents, which will still be the case when I turn 21. And CO is shall-issue state. Wooo!

    Won't reciprocate but that's alright. I don't plan to stay in the Bay Area after I graduate from college.
