    Welcome from South Carolina...Now that you and the wife have your permits, take a look at your calendars and schedule some PROFESSIONAL training through a REPUTABLE company/instructor. Congratulations on your decisions so far!
    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.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone. Good to see so many fellow Floridians here, too.

    I have a 36 YO son who is a lawyer and lives in Miami and he has still not come to that realization.

    I wouldn't say I got it quite that late - I'm a month away from turning 27. But certainly better late than never nonetheless. Funny, but I grew up in a gun-less household and now all three of my parents' children have firearms in their homes (1 LEO, 1 wife of LEO, and I the 2A civvie). Funny how things work sometimes.

    Agreed - and the dirtbag was sneaky about it too. Just a snip in the window screen and a radiating crack in the lower left corner where they appearently tried to use a punch of somesort. My guess is they saw the alarm contact sensor and thought better of it.

    Most definitely. Though I will say that our course certification was in itself above and beyond what Fla. requires for the CWL. The instrucor is a former Marine officer and was just an incredible wealth of knowledge. He offers a number of SD/tactical courses as well that I'll be looking into as time goes on.
