    Greetings from CA

    Hey all, I'm new to this forum, not new to guns. I own a Springfield Armory XD 9mm and love it. Also have an old Mosin that I got on sale. Fun rifle, hard to find ammo though. I've been planning on buying a shotgun but damn to those things have a kick.

    I, unfortunately, live in LA county so CCW for me is damned near impossible. Only reason I could have is that I travel a lot but doubt sheriffs' here would allow it anyway. Still, I plan on taking a CCW class if I can find a local one if for nothing else other than to gain knowledge.

    I've been reading a couple threads on this forum and am liking the thoughts some of the people have here so figured I'd join. Hope to gain better insight into any self defense as the area I live in, while safe for the most part, isn't exactly the nicest area. Then again, not being in the safest area I would hope bad guy's wouldn't bother with running up on me or mine.

    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.
