    Hello from West Virginia

    Hello. I just registered to the forums so I thought I'd take a second and introduce myself. I grew up around guns. My dad hand several handguns and a few rifles. On rare occasions, we would go hunting or to a range. While my handling was limited, I did know how to treat guns. My first gun was a small .22lr semi-automatic. But I sold it when I got married at the request of my wife. In the eight years since I sold my gun. many things have changed and my wife and I decided to purchase a gun and get carry concealed permits. We recently purchased a .38 special S&W snubbie and anxiously awaiting our class. I am excited at concealed carry, but also a bit nervous. I hope to share information and learn a great deal on the forums. Thank you.

    Johnny

    Welcome! IMHO even if a woman isn't going to carry, the Spouse having a permit with gun left in car could otherwise be a problem. Glad she is onboard. Nervous is not unusual. One step at a time.
