Hello from the Tri Cities

I was born in Grants Pass OR and raised in Cave Junction. I served in the military and saw the end of the Vietnam War. I've never owned a gun until 2 years ago. I saw Socialism starting to take away my Constitutional rights and decided to start investing in guns and ammo. When I joined the military I took an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, and I will hold to that oath until I go to see my Lord. I hope and pray that our military and law enforcement will protect us when the government attempts to abolish the Constitution, but I will stand with millions of my fellow gun carrying Americans if they won't. My other reason for owning guns, and obtaining a CCP, is that crime in the Tri Cities is creeping up due to the rising numbers of illegal immigrants and gangs here. My wife and I both carry and have taken several classes to help us. My landlord is a retired policeman, several men in my church are LEO's, and the County Sheriff is a very good friend who lives 2 blocks away. They all help us too. I've read hundreds of posts on here to gain knowledge about many things and decided it was time to join.

Welcome! Having grown up in Southern Oregon myself, and my first wife was born in Grass Pants. (Sorry!) When did you graduate high school? Just wondering if we might have some friends in common. Always thought I'd retire in Oregon, but the gun politics are wackier than Washington's.

"Welcome! I live just up the valley from Tri-Cities. Yakima county has become similar to the old west we see in the movies. Lots of shootings, gangs, trouble. I have a small collection of guns, carry often also.

I'm in your neighborhood quite often in my job.

TC64 Welcome from SO... I have some good friends that live up there in the Tri Cities area... Just too darn cold in the winter for me up there. I'll stay in Jackson county for the time being.

Welcome to the forum! I wasn’t born in Grants Pass, but my family moved there from Commiefornia when I was 1 year old and I lived there for 42 years, so I consider myself a native. If you’re looking to blow the cobwebs off your former military firearms training, check out Steve Shields at Cerberus Group in Goldendale
