I'm from Grand Prairie TX and although I have been carring a gun off and on for about 20 years I have never had a CHL, nor had I ever bought a brand new gun... Not because I couldn't afford one but because I did not want to be registered with the Federal Government. Well I finally bought a new gun. It is a Ruger LC9 and I think I'd like the thing but I can't seem to find any ammo for it at the moment. I only have about 100 rounds and I want to wait until I can buy more ammo before I go put any rounds down range.
And since I have now bought a new gun and I am now on the Federal Government's "List" I thought I might as well be legal and go take the CHL class. I have completed the class and I'm just waiting on the state of Texas to do thier thing.
Anyway this looks like a very informative forum and I'm looking forward to getting to know some of y'all...
