    Hey everyone, been surfing around plenty of gun forums lately and thought joining one specific to my region would be the best help. My name's Phil, and I live/work around the Olympia area. I grew up in Washington, traveled all over the country, and finally came back here. Since I'm more settled down now, I've been getting more involved in my gun hobby. Although this whole gun ban nonsense is not helping! Luckily I made a few purchases last year and have a little bit of ammo saved up for shooting, so I'm not hurting yet. Although I'd love to find more 9mm for my Walther PPQ if I could! Everywhere around here has been cleaned out. Anyways, looking forward to contributing and getting to know some people!

    Phil

    Welcome. IMHO you got one more step........if you didn't do it already........get a CCW. It's sort of an instant "badge" to carry around. Showing that you're one of the "good guys." Of course, it's still up to you if you choose to go around armed. But, I've found it useful when making a firearms deal/purchase face to face.

    Not to mention, that you'll probably p%$$ off a LIBTARD.

    Aloha, Mark

    Yep, I already own a CCW/CPL. It was actually the first thing I did before I bought my first gun! I also concealed carry on a regular basis because I think it's important to use your CPL if you have one and feel comfortable doing so. Although, when I first started I felt weird going into stores and wondered if people would notice. I hear it's like that for a lot of people, but I'm glad I got over it with practice. Thanks!
