    Old Chick with a new schtick

    Hi All, I'm a newbie on the forum and to firearms but not new to this earth (been around for 60 years). Been lurking on this forum for a couple of weeks and already have found a wealth of info and insight. Very impressed with the civility here! Well, OK, most of the time. My interests are personal defense, IDPA, 2nd ammendment issues and handguns (I can't handle a rifle - too heavy - so I leave that to my better half). Being a gal has it's issues - mainly treating "buying firearms" like "buying shoes" - Imelda Marcos comes to mind. Seriously, my motivation has been being a victim of a near-deadly, violent crime (when I was 20), my vunerability as an old lady and my apprehension in these unsettling times. So, thank you for inviting me into your home, so to speak, and I promise I'll be good.

    Welcome, from SC. Hope you learn all sorts of great stuff like I have. But, don't be TOO good. People that behave too good can't be trusted.
