    Howdy from KY

    Hello from Central KY-
    Nice site here and would like to learn as much here as possible and maybe even contribute here and there.

    Been around firearms most of my life shooting only long guns until the mid-90s. Bought a Ruger P85 9mm and got pretty proficient with it but nothing to write home about. Went several years just shooting here and there, nothing consistent... got married and have a family. After 9/11 it got me to thinking about taking care my family and the things I could do toward that end. Joined the NRA and got to reading the "Armed Citizen" column regularly seeing that even though we live in a relatively safe town and area that we aren't immune to someone trying to randomly do us harm.

    I've had my CCDW permit for a year now and carry daily. Although I shoot often, I still am looking for additional training with my XD40 Service and my 870 Tactical. Always looking for good info and thought-provoking conversation about guns, situational awareness and our 2nd amendment rights. Sorry this was so long...

    Welcome from Michigan!
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
    Train hard, live easy.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    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.
