New from central Iowa
I've owned a shotgun since a teenager but got my first handgun last November. A M&P 9 mm that I really like. Just picked up a Nano last month. (Btw, if anyone in the Des Moines area has a short barrel laser bore sight tool I could borrow, please let me know)
Taking a CCW class in a few weeks. Despite having a break in while we were home many years ago my wife was very against handguns in the house and is really on me about wanting to carry. She thinks I'm "gun crazy" over my new hobby and wanting to protect our growing family.
Anyways, a lot of great info here. Glad I found it!

I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.

Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
