New to the forum. Got the fever last year on handguns. Have now reached a point that I've purchased enough for now(according to my wife). I love the training and the learning associated with the handgun world. So decided to join forums to get as much information as possible while I'm just sitting here in the evenings. Looking forward to learning from the more experienced among us.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
Welcome from the DFW area. You've found a great group of folks and a great resource. Since you're in Texas, I might also recommend TexasCHLforum.com • Index page for state specific info.

Thanks. Found the TexasCHL forum last night. Also from the DFW area, actually just north where the cows and horses still have pastures. But close enough to work "in town". Thanks for the welcome.

Welcome from SE Michigan. And I don't think there is anyone here that has a cure for that "Handgun Fever".

Hello, Docaw, and welcome from Missouri to this great forum. Good people and lots of info here. Great that you are getting training on handgun use. You may also want to check out the many free YouTube videos made by Massad Ayoob - a world-reknown exper who has recorded multi-video training on Use of Lethal Force, Shoot to Live, Home Invasion, Preparations for Home Defense, Stand Your Ground, On CCW Laws, and What to Do After a Shooting. You can Google Mas' name and these titles and they should pop up. If you can't find them, PM me and I'll send you URLs. Blessings!
