New Member from North Wilmington (Pennyhill) Area
« on: February 17, 2021, 01:26:26 PM »
Hello Folks!

I moved to Delaware in 2002.  Originally I'm from New York (actually, emigrated as a youth from Soviet Russia).  My wife is the Delaware native so she brought me out here not too long after we got married.  Spent about 20 years as a practicing attorney, then had just about enough of it (largely because I was working for leftists), so now I only do that part time.  Full time, I am now a gunsmith and an FFL dealer.  I have been heavily into the shooting sports ever since I moved to Delaware (actually, it was part of the deal when I agreed to move out here).  I'm an avid hunter, competitive shooter (IPSC and CMP Rifle Mostly).  Currently I am on the board of a Rod and Gun Club.

Despite all this it wasn't until last month that I applied for My CCDW.  I have all the requirements in, including the course.  Now for the interminably long wait (I hear it is 6 months up in NCC).  Just wanted to bring some gun expertise to the table and perhaps learn something about concealed carry.  I have open carried, but as many of you know, that has its limitations.  So, once again, Hello!

Welcome.   You have found the right place.  By all means submit your questions here and I am quite sure will get both answers and opinions.   The powers that be do a yeoman job of keeping this forum decent and respectful to all. 

We may even “pick your brain” for legal items.
