    New member in Michigan

    Hi,

    I just joined because I ran across your forum while searching for something, and saw some great responses to a woman looking for help with gun selection.

    I've been shooting since the mid-1970's, did military service (infantry) in 1979 and 1980 in the Israeli army, and started shooting again about 3 years ago after a long hiatus.

    I now have a carry permit and carry my Sig P6 daily, have a .22 rifle, a .22 pistol for practice/training/teaching, and a 12Ga for Trap. Trying to decide on my next carry pistol, but jeez, there are just so many choices!

    I just passed (this weekend!) the instructor courses to become an NRA Instructor in Basic Pistol and Personal Protection in the Home, and am exhausted, but proud!

    I live in the NW suburbs of Detroit.

    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.
