    New member from East Central Alabama

    Ladies and gentleman, greetings from Alabama. I've been reading this forum for some time now but due to some technical issues have been unable to post. This being my 1st post I just wanted to say hello and thanks for all the useful information and I look forward to more. I do, however, have 1 question. Why does everyone keep refering to thier sidearm as a "gun"? Maybe it's just my military training or I have been watching too many movies, but my "gun" is used for fun when the lights go out. My sidearm is a "weapon". An instrument which I will employ in a hostile situation to agressively neutralize an opposeing hostile threat to myself or my loved ones. Again hello & thanks.

    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.

    Welcome from South Carolina...I agree...my sidearm is my WEAPON...this is a subject of ongoing discussion and will never be resolved.
    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.
