    Hello from Texas

    I am a retired firefighter with a P220 Carry on order. I have a Blackhawk .357 for potential hog encounters on the family property. I have owned a Sig Compact .40 previously a 220 something. Didn't worry about the model I just shot it. We got along well on the range but the .40 offhand without hearing protection made me flinch. Too many sirens and gun shots (.300 Weatherby to be exact) to the head. Look forward to getting info on the board. Lot of good people here.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
