I bought my first gun of any kind about 4 months ago after many years of wanting one and never following through. My first purchase was a Kahr CW9 and that lead to a desire for many many more guns! But, you saw that one coming.
Originally I wasn't sure if I would ever want to carry it concealed, but ownership encouraged me to start paying more attention to the news, laws surrounding gun ownership, politics, history, national and international crime... and that solidified my interest in getting my concealed carry permit. I'm all finished with all of the classes and waiting on my permit in the mail right now.
After learning more about home defense and the effectiveness of defensive guns, I bought a Mossberg 500 to keep at the house.
So, I finally decided to sign up here so I could possibly get a more well rounded view of all self defense topics rather than gun centered forums that only have a single forum for concealed carry or defensive tactics.

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
