    Hi from new Michigan (Detroit burbs) member

    I've been shooting my buddies hardware for a few years and decided to jump in. I bought a Springfield XD 9mm sub-compact and picked up a S&W 642 for the wife (newbie shooter). We both took our CPL class this past weekend and applied for the license Monday. (I'm told it's currently about a 4 week turnaround) Looking forward to gaining additional knowledge on this great site.

    Welcome from Virginia.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Yes since he owns 14 hand guns and 21 long guns he's always ready to share the wealth. (Oh wait - I guess that's redistribute the wealth)

    Welcome from Nebraska.

    Serve my country, swear an oath to protect it, pay my taxes, fly old glory in the front yard, love and protect my family, honor the vets before me and help fellow americans in need.
    By definition my country now calls me a radical
