Hello there folks, and greetings from sunny, dry Arizona! Tucson, AZ to be precise.

As my name implies, I'm a bit rusty at the hinges, though I still would be considered a young man.

New to Taurus with my gen2 PT-111. First and only polymer pistol so far, as I generally prefer all-steel guns and compliment them with leather (yes, I'm one of THOSE people lol :D).
As I like to say, "I like my women like I like my guns: all steel, no plastic, and with a natural finish.";)

I carry about 50% of the time due to my work*, which unfortunately has a strict "No self-defense tools allowed" policy.:(
When I do carry (read: whenever I'm not at work or in Federal buildings), I'm usually OCing a full-size 1911 in a leather OWB holster. I usually tuck in my shirts and carry a trusted folding knife on my weak side, though lately I've begun to wear looser shirts to CC my PT-111 on my weak side. I don't know what this OC & CC combination is called, or if it even has a term. May I propose "Hybrid carry"?;D

Hope to stick around and enjoy everyone's company and conversation.



*Prior to my new job, I attended the University of Arizona down here in Tucson where the students are required to surrender any and all means of self defense in order to attend, courtesy of the Arizona Board of Tyrants, er, Regents. The policy is more of a "do as the criminal says, don't hurt them or fight back, and use the Blue Boxes to call in if you're getting mugged, beaten, or raped. :(

Welcome from Northern Illinois! I tried to relocate to Tucson in the early 70's as a young sprat...couldn't find a sustainable and substantial enough livelihood to stay and so returned to the socialist state of ILL.

Hello from hot, humid, muggy North Carolina. Next week, after the cool front comes, temps are going to fall into the nice cool mid 90's
