    New from IL.

    Great forum first of all. My name is Ken, I am new to handguns but have been a lifelong hunter and outdoorsman. I recently took my CCW class for the state of Utah. I do quite a bit of travel and wanted to protect myself and my family. Hopefully someday soon the State of IL. will pull their head out and pass our conceal carry law.
    I have learned a ton from my past month reading the forums and soon will be buying my first handgun. I have taken advise I read on here and have held and shot alot of different guns and have it narrowed down to a few. I am sure I will have a ton of questions but will try and use the search function as much as I can.

    Greetings from N KY. I grew up in Peoria, have been in your town on occasion.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    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.
