    Hey! Newbie here.

    Hello, everyone. My name is Josh. I'm 25 years old, lifetime resident of Indiana, lifetime carry permit holder, automotive tech, Jeeper, outdoorsman, etc. Typical guy stuff. I've been a non-paid member of this forum for about a year, maybe two...I dunno. But, as life changes, different questions arise and prioities get rearranged. So, I've decided it would be a good idea to let everyone know who I am since I'm going to have some different questions and don't quite know where to look on the board here. So, after I get a few replies, I'll ask my questions and hopefully become a more active member of this community.

    Thanks for the welcomes! I guess it will only be a matter of time before I get asked, I carry a S&W Sigma .40 with an IWB holster. Yes, I know it has a heavy trigger pull, no I don't plan on changing it. I don't really know why the Sigma gets such a bad rep. It's been reliable for me. So don't flame me too much for carrying it. It was the gun that I was most comfortable with in my price range.

    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Welcome to the forum Josh!
    The forum is for questions....and learning. It's open. I want to know who asked you to start "paying" for the information or how you figured you should.
    Hope you do become a more active member. That's up to you.
    "Life changes"
    Indeed it does. You tend to grow with it. Changes never set you back.

    Welcome Josh. Your an automotive tech? I've been a service writer for many years,...nice to have other folks working in shops here on the boards.

    Sheer curiosity; Are you a Firestone fan or do you work for them (going by your sn?)

    Another "welcome" from AZ!

    Questions are always welcome, since the big value of this forum is an open exchange of information and opinions. Darned few of us were born knowing how to shoot - we all had to learn one way or another. Don't be bashful.
