    Newbie from Texas

    Hi everybody. I'll be 21 years old on 3 August and I'm getting a Glock 23 for my birthday. I took my CHL Class a few weeks ago in hopes that I can carry from the day I turn 21 until the day I turn to dust. I joined the United States Army when I was 17 and went to war in Iraq when I was 19, and I firmly beleive that every citizen ought to be armed. Anyway, that's enough rambling I hope to soak in as much of the knowledge that I can from the posts in these forum. Ya'll give me a holler if you'er ever in Texas.
