Hi, all! I just moved myself up to Portland from Las Vegas, Nevada, and I'm trying to figure out the local pistol scene. I'm by no means an expert, but I'm familiar enough with my Springfield XD 40 that I could communicate my disapproval to a home intruder at indoor combat distances, and I've got about 2,000 rounds through it. I also just got my Oregon CHL, which I'm very happy about. Glad to find a forum for like-minded folks up here... perhaps I'm spoiled by the overwhelmingly permissive attitude of Las Vegas, but it seems like the general population up has the opinion that handguns are a little unsavory? So, thanks for having me on the site!
