    Hello forum folks!

    Grew up in CT hunting w/ longbarrels. Now living in the firearm friendly state of FL. I own a home & range G17 and carry a G26. Love them both, as well as the obligatory 12ga :)

    The best weapon for protecting yourself is your brain. Use it. Be aware of your surroundings and people within your proximity. If you're in a situation where you don't even have time to chamber a round you've already made a series of mistakes.

    Welcome from Memphis. Tennessee is right on top this morning.
    Memphis -- No. 2 on the list of most crime ridden cities in America. Working on being No. 1 but we just can't catch Detroit.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! Throw your handguns away & keep the 12 ga. Your Vice President assures you that's all you need to protect yourself. It is a double barrel, isn't it?

    Welcome from Alabama
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
