    I've been lurking on this forum for some time, reading past posts and enjoying this well moderated and informative site.

    I've owned two P32 pistols (now sold) and currently own two P3AT pistols as well. The KELTEC are my preferred summer CCW pistols as I reside in AZ. I carry a SIG 239/9 in the winter months, a KAHR P9 in the spring/fall months.

    I'm a retired LEO, so CCW has been a daily routine for 26 years of active duty and 12 years retirement.

    George isn't speaking for me.


    I'll add my own welcome. ;D Welcome to KTOG!

    I see we have some things in common. I like my KT's pocket pistol to be in pairs also. ;)

    Thanks for the welcome. I'm looking forward to learning more and maybe passing on what I've learned.
    No, I'm retired from the state level. I worked with plenty of federal officers...hard working and dedicated. The border situation here is like a sieve.

    That's great! I loved going to work everyday. This is a great time to be a police officer in terms of potential income and career advancement...worse time in terms of what's expected of officers and what's experienced, everyday.
    AZ agencies are losing so many officers due to retirements, that they're actively recruiting from agencies out of state. That was unheard of a few years ago.

    I have a small collection of handguns. I carry the P3AT only during the summer months. I have other (larger) guns that I carry spring/fall and winter months. I'm never w/o something.
    In AZ, it's about the weather...which dictates what the clothing attire is. The P3AT is for summer months when clothing is almost optional... ;)

    Late coming to the thread, but another Welcome is in order! It appears our summer wardrobes have a lot in common. I'm just north of you in Saint George, sandals, shorts, Hawaiian shirt, and sunglasses are the uniform of the day! :cool:
