    Hello to all, glad to be here

    Let's see... I've been around guns since I was 6 years old. That does not make me an expert, but I am both familiar, and comfortable with them. If that wasn't enough I spent 22 years in the Army and retired form the service 21 years ago. That means I'm old. I believe it is a right for law abiding citizens to arm themselves for their protection. (what we need protection we can debate on later). I do not like the way Americans seem to give up their rights, and mine, because they falsely believe they will be better off with someone else in control of their safety. I have no doubt in my ability to defend myself. I do have my doubts about our politicians.

    I came across this forum while searching out information on both new guns, and gun laws. It is very interesting and the variety of topics is good. Hope to both learn and contribute.

    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.
