    New to the Forum

    Morning,

    New member here. I'm not new to shooting, but new to the CCW world. So far, this forum has been a wealth of knowledge when it comes to just about everything related to carrying a concealed firearm.

    My wife is a small business owner and was put in a potentially bad situation about 3 months ago where she feared for her life. It was shortly after this that she suggested that I teach her how to safely handle a pistol and shoot effectively. After she became comfortable with one of our smaller pistols, she suggested that we look into obtaining our concealed weapons permit. About a month ago we attended a class by a local instructor (who also happens to be a police sergeant). We both enjoyed the class and she applied immediately for her permit. I decided to wait a bit just to make sure that I was willing to accept the huge responsibility and the change in lifestyle. My wife received hers about 3 weeks ago and mine is on it's way. She carries every day and I plan to do the same as permitted by local laws.

    Thanks in advance for the community and wealth of knowledge.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Feedback heard on the training and joining a competitive shooting league. My employer actually sponsors a pistol club, which we have both joined.
