    Greetings from The Motor City

    I live about 40 miles north of The D and have done so my whole life. I am new to firearms as the wife controls the finances. After the last election failure though she turned to me and said it was time to seriously get a firearm and CPL before it's too late. Always listen to the boss

    After further prompting, just to make sure it was not some fantasy land I was in when I 'thought' I heard her say that I moved forward purchasing a handgun, taking my CPL class, getting in some shooting time and finally getting my CPL, with a few other purchases along the way

    She knows what she's talkin' about. Am assuming you're both doing the CHL two-step.

    Wow! Would not wish your locale on my worst dog (and I respect that you are holding firm there...). Be Safe! Train Safe and train to be safe = know your target and be on target.

    Welcome here! Ask questions - any questions. Be polite and know that the greater DC community is awesome.

    I'll loop back. Stay safe for you and your Ladie! God Speed (if you believe in that).

    Welcome to the Forums. Always use cash when buying arms/ammo.

    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.

    Welcome from Lansing!

    You've got the gun, you'll be taking the CPL class. Make sure you get some professional training on the use of that firearm. The CPL course does NOT teach that!
