    New Member from Upstate, NY

    Hello All! I've been lurking here for awhile and thought I should sign up and introduce myself. I'm a newbie to handguns and self defense. I had an incident a couple weeks ago that got me moving in this direction. My application for CCW is getting finished up and then the 12 month wait will begin.

    Hope to learn a lot from this forum in the meantime.

    Ben

    Welcome from Alabama
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
