Greetings everyone, I am currently living in Florida and will soon be moving home to the great and beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am a native of the Tacoma area, but have been living and working in Vero Beach, Florida as a corporate pilot for a private company. I have decided that I love aviation to much to do it for a living, so I have decided to go back to school at Oregon State University to study Forestry. It is my hope that this will allow me to spend more time with my beloved family and to enjoy everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer...and with luck I will someday be fortunate enough to own my own small airplane so I may continue to enjoy the freedom of flying and teaching others the skills to do so as well. I am the proud owner of a small collection of Beretta pistols, in addition to a collection of high quality family heirloom long guns. It is my hope that this forum will help me to understand the laws and culture pertaining to firearms and concealed carry in Washington and Oregon. Happy and Safe Shooting!
