    Greetings from Sarasota

    Greetings from Sarasota.

    Transplant from NJ, having moved to FL full time in 2016. Got remarried last year, and my wife, a lifelong Florida cracker (her description, not mine!) bought me my first weapon--a Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0--as a wedding gift. Christmas brought me a KelTec Sub 2000.

    She was rather surprised when we started going to the range together. She just couldn't believe a Jewish boy from NJ could shoot.

    Gave up riding my Harley a year or two ago, as I've decided there are too many nuts on the roads. So now instead of blowing my money on Harley gear, I get to spend it on my guns!

    Anyway... got my CCW license in the beginning of the year. Looks like not a moment too soon...

    Looking forward to learning from all of you.

    Welcome from Jacksonville
    To speak without thinking is to shoot without aiming.

    Welcome again to FCC from Palm Beach County, SRQ!

    Glad to see you made back to America and left the Nanny-State politics of the Democratic People's Rebublik of New Jersey behind. You have a quite a few comrades here that did the same!

    Welcome aboard from Cape Coral. May I suggest, if you haven't already, Jon Gutmacher's book 'Florida Firearms Law. It explains the ins and outs of firearms laws here in plain English.
