Hi all,

Orlando guy who is on the way to being strapped (but not in the "I had my wealth redistributed" way)! I just purchased a S&W M&P .40c at the Central Florida Gun Show, and am saving up to purchase the necessary accoutrements for concealed carry (like a holster and, um, ammo).

I am a father of three wonderful children (not including the M&P), who are home-schooled by my equally wonderful wife. I work as a Corrections Officer and I am a newly promoted SGT in the Florida National Guard.

I have always felt that it is every able citizens' RESPONSIBILITY to carry a concealed weapon, not only for their own protection, but for the protection of those around them. Soon I will finally be able to say that I am fulfilling my obligation as a citizen of the greatest nation on earth.

I purchased the M&P 40c about a week and a half ago. It's pretty nice and a good alternative to the glock I was looking for. I bought mine from Shoot Straight in Tampa. I was normally 650.00 but on sale for 499.00 with a 50.00 mail in rebate from S&W. Not to bad for the price.
