    Hello

    Thought I should pop in and say hello to everyone. Been lurking since I got my permit about 8 months ago. After about 6 months my wife finally accepted having a handgun in the house so I recently purchased an XD9SC. Love the gun!!! I'm not really sure what my overall goal is in regards to carrying but I find the info here to be quite awesome! As soon as I can scrape up the cabbage I'll be taking a CCW upgrade class not necessarily to get my restrictions lifted but more to become a safe owner. I've been around guns all my life but have had a hiatus for a few years with the only gun in the house being my Ruger10/22 which was my first gun as a kid. So anywho.. Hello all!!

    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.

    Welcome from Michigan!

    I went through a similar thing; put my guns away for years while my kids were little (rambunctious, nosy boys) and I concentrated a lot on my career, master's degree, and martial arts.

    Put them away I'd say about 1998, came to my senses about the summer of 2008. Cleaned them up, got my CPL in December 2008. Now I feel somewhat naked without my SW 3913.
