Your comment "if I can find the courage to bring her along." was expected to be "the courage to leave her home." lol

With CHL I am guessing?

Love your furry friend too... not gun shy?

The furry friend was my first-ever greyhound -- she left me for the rainbow bridge 4 years ago this past August Crying

And yeah, I have a Georgia Weapons License -- we're allowed to carry open or concealed, and I generally just don't carry at all, but I have a lot of friends who do, and I'm about ready to try it.

I'm going to retire and live off of my savings. Not sure what I'll do that second week.

Your greyhound appears to have been a charmer. I thought it was a Whippet.
We have a customer with a Whippet and I thought it was a greyhound when I first saw it.

Carrying is a responsibility not taken lightly. It sounds as though you have been considering your options. That is wise.

A lot of people get whippets/greyhounds confused, until they see them side by side. Angie was special...and yeah, I still miss her. Crying

Guns are fun, but just like cars, they need to be treated with respect. Happily, all mine are well-behaved, and have no desire to hurt people.

I love to shoot too. I usually resort though to plastic milk jugs & the like. It's a great stress reliever!

The artist did a good job. Thumbs up
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Thanks, Ann!

If I could shoot in my back yard, I'd do the plastic milk jugs, etc. But I"m too close to the neighbors, so I have to go to a range
