Thanks Defensive Carry, from STL
Although I've posted on here before, I never got around to introducing myself.
Three months ago I made the decision to get my ccw. Not knowing much about guns I have been very fortunate to find this website, which has led to other websites, excellent YouTube videos, blogs, etc. After visiting pretty much every gun store in the St. Louis area I purchased a Springfield XDS.
I've gotta admit, my first time at the range I was nervous. Now I have 750 rounds through my gun, have worked with an instructor & shot some other guns (revolvers are fun!)
Took my ccw class and waited 19 days to process. Paperwork came back yesterday along with my black mamba holster (mail delivered at 4:30, offices close at 5:00, boooo) so first thing today headed downtown.
I've got a quick run across the river to our property in IL and then it's off to Wally World. Thanks DefensiveCarry.com
