    Hi from Baton Rouge

    I'm the new guy from down on the bayou! Long time outdoorsman. Love hunting, fishing, and camping. I've always been around and used sporting guns but not really into handgun/defense guns until recently. Started shooting and becoming more interested as my family has grown. About two years ago I started buying a few handguns and getting interested in conceal carry. Just recently I made my mind up for sure when I was shopping with my wife at our local mall. An internet message turned into over 1000 youth congregating at this mall withing a matter of an hour. Fights started all over the place and then someone pulled a gun. We got locked in a store and evacuated by police officers. Quite scary since my wife and son was with me. I am now registered for my CCL class this Sunday. Very glad to meet you guys!
