    Hello from Colorado

    Over the past year or so, my wife has gone from being uneasy about keeping guns in the house to owning her own M&P 9mm and shopping for a family membership to a gun range.

    She grew up on a farm and is a heckuva shot with a rifle or 12 gauge, just never been around handguns much.

    It's not even recent shootings that have changed her mindset--it's all the anti-gun media attention out there.

    So now we visit gun shops and gun shows and go shooting for fun and practice together. What a turnaround!

    Now to find some other influence to stop me from buying whatever new toy I want--I'm not sure how long the checkbook can handle both of us drooling over that 1911 in the display case...

    Anyway, hi from northern Colorado!

    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
