Greetings from new member
Hi, all, from a new member.

I'm an attorney in his third decade of practicing law in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, with a particular focus on the law of self defense (hence, my user name) but I am looking to make my escape as soon as my oldest graduates high school. I began my competitive shooting activities as a youth, and today I'm a Life Member of the NRA and a Charter/Life Member and Master-class competitor in multiple classifications in IDPA. I've for many years been an NRA-certified firearms instructor in pistol, rifle, and personal protection, and have previously served as an Adjunct Instructor at the SigArms Academy. I have, or have held, concealed carry permits in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, Pennsylvania, Florida, Utah, and other states.

I travel through PA frequently on motorcycle road trips (my other hobby), and I have spent quite a lot of time in Philadelphia and Pittsburg for business purposes. Also, I went to college in Binghamton, NY, just over the PA's northern border--we used to drive over to pick up some of the high-octane adult beverage that wasn't available in NY state.

The threads I start are usually about legal-related events around self defense, and have a personal blog on the law of self defense, but I participate in all kinds of threads started by others.

Great to have you here. I look forward to some interesting conversation.

I broke loose from NJ almost 2 years ago, deciding to retire to a State that respects most of my 2A rights. PA is a good place, especially if you're a conservative.
