    Howdy from Dallas

    Hiddy ho neighbors! Was in LE for several years in my younger days, but that has been many moons ago now. Recently took the CHL class after deciding to get back involved with guns, and was surprised at how all of the past training came rushing back. Guess it is like riding a bicycle.

    I am truly amazed at all of the compact 9mm choices now driven by the concealed license market. I don't remember that many choices when I was on the street. Anyway... I recently picked up a Beretta Nano for my carry gun for now. Just waiting to get to the range to see how it does.

    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.

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