    Amazing the timing of things!

    Thanks to Dr_cmg and his help I was able to choose and purchase a nice 9mm this past weekend at the Montgomery, Al Show. Me and my wife each got permits today and had not been home long when one of my Church Members calls and ask about any signs of break-in here. His explanation was that 3 inmates had excaped a local facility in the area today and a home invasion had already occured. At this point, little after midnight one is still on the run. Haven't even had time to practice with the gun but "Personal Protection" on the application was suddenly all to true.

    Amazing, the timing of things! Hope I never have to use it, other than practice but I feel better about things. I used to be a Security Guard while attending Seminary in New Orleans and all those accounts were "unarmed" accounts. There were some awful fearful moments in New Orleans and all I could do "according to policy" was observe and report. Few dead folks have ever done either. I am thankful to be able to defend our home if necessary. What a reminder today, as these folks were less than a mile from our residence at one point today, of how important it is to be able to defend and protect from those who would harm.

    Congrats on the 9mm and permits. Great timing indeed! Of course, we want to know more about the 9mm. What did you get?
    I'm always glad to hear of other carrying pastors. Blessing on you and I hope that they find the escapees.

    Congrat's on the arrival of both your permits. As you said, the timing could not have been more perfect. With those unwelcome visitors to your area you need to be careful. Be safe!

    Oh, and do tell us what 9mm handgun you bought. We'd love to know.

    Good on George for getting you hooked up.

    Good on you for recognizing your God-given responsibility to do what you can to protect you and your loved ones.

    BTW, after long, unproductive board meetings, shooting is a great relaxer. Just don't put ALL their faces on the targets!

    You have the weapon, the permit, now you need the training and practice...buy extra ammo.

    Stay armed...timing is everything...stay safe!

    Welcome, Boze. Always good to hear of another pastor protecting the flock in every way.

    Make sure you post your WWW!

    Thanks for all the great encouragement guys. Btw: the gun is a Taurus PT 111 Millennium Pro. I will have to do pictures of the PT later, sorry BradyM77 but thanks for the reminder.
    Thanks again!
