    Hello from Kentucky

    I've been shooting since I was around 10 when my daddy took me out on the farm, flicked his cigarette but & advised me to use it as my target.I took my conceal carry class at Knob Creek in November 2012. My first gun was given to me by my momma, a S & W 38 Revolver she purchased in 1976. Since the revolver is a little more difficult to conceal, I bought my S & W Bodyguard w/laser at a gun show today. Although I've only fired one shot with it, I really like the size & weight of it. The trigger seemed a little stiff for me & I thought it would just need to be 'broken in'. However, from the little bit that I've read, the trigger is always gonna be a little stiff. I'll be picking up a paddle holster before my permit/license comes in. I plan to carry it on my left side, with pull from my right hand and will make pulling from the holster practice shooting part of my visit to our farm since I live in the city. I like the comfort of knowing I can protect me & my family, but I hope I never have to! Peace.

    Never challenge an old man, because if you lose, you’ve lost to an old man, and if you win, so what?
