Default New Perspective CCW Buddy

A friend who had not fired a handgun in over 40 years purchased an LCP .380 w/the idea of getting his ccw. I sat down w/him and went over how to field strip and clean, then off to the range. He had trouble at first hitting a paper plate @ 3 yds., but settled down after a few rounds. After that we went to my house for another strip & clean, a little orange paint on the front sight, and I think he's ready to sign up for the ccw class at the range. I plan to talk to him more about the how and why of responsible carrying. It'll be good to have another responsible senior citizen who is armed.

The more of us armed seniors the better, good on you for working with and encouraging him.

My Grandpa of 79 carries and is my main source of motivation for getting my carry permit. He is a vegetarian and wouldn't hurt a fly; but he knows it's important to carry!!!

Regardless of their age.

I firmly believe that every law abiding citizen that is physically and mentally able should be armed, 100% of the time.

Nobody deserves to be helpless at the hands of a criminal.
