    Hello from VA

    Hello from VA!

    I'm 36 years old and live with my wife and dog. For most of my life, I never felt the need to own a gun and always thought if there was ever an incident I would let my fists do the talking. Then, as I got older and less naÔve, I came to the realization that there are many crazy people in this world that do not have the same moral standards as I have and do not live by the same rules as I do. Also, my wife and I plan to start a family soon. The need to protect myself and my family feels stronger than ever. I figured I better get started right away and become proficient in the use of firearms before there's an addition to our family.

    I've been browsing this site and these forums and felt this was a good place to get educated on the proper use of firearms and get information on any products I may need; I hope to learn a lot from here and meeting great people with similar interests will just be a bonus.

    Here's what I currently own - Glock 19 is for home defense and the P938 is my CC:
