Hi, I've been looking over Jim's shoulder for a long time in this forum so decided it was time for me to join the conversations. By the way, my login name will be understood by fellow ham operators, the XYL means wife (ex young lady) in hamspeak. We got our carry permits at the same time, I have a Smith and Wesson 357, short barrel, a Walther P22 and my newest one a Beretta Tom Cat, 32. Still trying to decide the best way to carry, don't like the purse thing or jacket that I take off when inside. Oh, well, maybe some of the other women here can give me suggestions.
