    Greetings from South Texas....

    ...after lurking for a couple weeks, thought it was time to chime in. Decided about a month ago it was past time for me to obtain my CHL. I have had guns for a long time, but never really took full use of them till recently. My dad gave me a 70 series Colt 1911 about 30 years ago, have maybe 100 rnds thru it, just got a Glock 19 4th Gen that have been practicing with, and my wife a Taurus .38
    Better late than never I guess, but with the way the world is now, things are just too outta control to assume nothing bad is going to happen to me or my family.....and I believe life is going get more difficult before it gets better.....just my humble opinion. Anyway, I have been lurking on this and a couple other forums that deal with CC an SD. I have my CHL class scheduled in a couple weeks, have already been getting my "head right" as far as being a responsible armed member of my community. I think I understand that walking around in public with a legal weapon may empower me to a degree, but with that empowerment comes great responsibilty to be knowledable and profiecient. I look forward to soaking up the info I get here as well as other forums, and in time, maybe actually contribute some positive influance to others, thanks for the vine, Kel

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