    New guy from Illinois

    Hi all, been lurking for a while, thought I'd better be polite and introduce myself. From downstate Illinois (St Louis metro east). Long time hunter, new to handguns. I have recently purchased a Ruger GP 100 4" stainless for the home, and am learning to use it as effectively as possible. I appreciate all the information and opinions that are shared on these forums. Thank you!

    Mike

    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -

    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.
