    Hello everyone!

    I have been browsing this forum for the better part of six months now, and I finally decided to join. Figured I'd give you guys a quick introduction.

    My name is Colin, I'm 22 years old, and I'm a freelance audio engineer. I love music and cars, and while I've always adored firearms, in the last two years my interested has increased from curiosity to borderline obsession. I also have interest in (perhaps) one day becoming a LEO, as it runs in my family. My grandfathers on both my mother's and father's side were police, and my great-grandfather (a respected detective from Texas) was at one time involved with tracking Bonnie and Clyde. I still have a news paper clipping framed with his medals I'll have to dig up some time and post for you guys if you're interested (I myself love history and have always had an interest in criminal justice).

    Though I am fairly young, I have spent my life around firearms and I consider myself to have decent firearms knowledge and excellent safety practices (I have always been a safety nut, and that translates into how I drive my car, my finances, and the people I involve myself with). Needless to say though, I have much to learn and fortunately I LOVE learning, which is the main reason I am here. I've had my CCW permit for a couple months now and I try to carry at all times (where legal, obviously). I also came here to get your feedback on a story that just happened to me yesterday, which, in the interest of organization, I will post separately in the appropriate section of the forum.

    I also love my family, love God, and have some of the best friends a man could ask for. I have a girlfriend too (which I may be proposing to in the near future, SHHHHH!) :)

    That's enough for me, I do apologize for the long introduction but I just wanted to say hi to everyone! I look forward to chatting with you all!

    Cheers.

    Welcome from the MS Gulf Coast.

    Sounds like you've got a great background for building a life long firearms obsession!
