    Hello from Waterford, MI

    Hello all,

    I'm new here, but not to guns. I hunted as a teenager but not thru college or after.

    Starting to see urban sprawl from Pontiac into my community. The wife and I are preparing ourselves to protect our two young girls (and therefore ourselves too). Michigan is still depressed financially and people are becoming more desperate and brazen.

    I've always kept "notice" of my surroundings, but my CPL course, forums, and videos have really switched that to situational awareness. The more aware I am, the more I realize how dangerous and depraived this world is. I now watch the news saying, "That could happen to me, what would I have done", where I used to say, "Wow, that's terrible. I feel bad for those people."

    So as I wait for Oakland County to mail me my CPL, I'm concealing on my property, practicing safety, learning, and visiting the range.

    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
