    Hello from South Florida

    I grew up in the mid-west so I have always been very familiar with guns. I was an avid hunter for years but never gave a second thought about defensive carry until this past year.

    The past few years here in South Florida have really opened my eyes. There are alot of great people here in South Florida (from all over the country), but there is also alot of crime, especially drug related (and it seems to be getting worse as the economy collapses further).

    Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and thank everyone for their contributions. The information has been very informative and I look forward to interacting on a regular basis.

    Cheers!

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
