There may already be a post or article discussing this, but I can't recall one that I've read. I have always been a casual, tucked-out sort of guy, unless of course I'm wearing a dress shirt and some…Continue

Hello there! I noticed on one of your previous thread posts that you carry a gun with you either concealed or unconcealed. I thought you might be interested in joining my new group called the Concealed Carry Club. Here is a link to the club:
