    Smile A little about me...here it goes!

    I'm from South Dakota, in my 20's, have 2 daughters, and am a single mom.

    When I was 12, I went through NRA and completed that training. I went pheasant hunting for one season, and it was okay, but I'm kind of impatient :)

    I am on this forum for a few reasons...I have some gun accessories to get information on to sell. And also because I've been contemplating getting a pistol for safety/self-defense from someone who I have a restraining order against, but he's violated it enough times that he ended up in prison for so many violations, and is now free. I don't trust a piece of paper...he obviously doesn't care about going to prison, only trying to get to me.

    I grew up and still have tons of family/friends who are avid firearm buffs, for hunting, collecting, and I have a few family members who are in law enforcement. So I have a lot of knowledge on how to use, just not knowledge on the types, sizes, prices, etc.

    Open to questions and comments!

    Welcome Aboard! By all means, stay safe, seek all the knowledge you can so you can make an educated decision as to what's right for you concerning firearms. Lookup and study your states laws as well...... pretty important.

    .....and by all means, enjoy being here at DCC. This is a good, knowledgeable group here.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! You're right - a gun carried constantly & by your bedside at night is a lot more protection than a piece of paper.

    Welcome from Louisiana.

    I've never been to SD, but I know that ya'll don't border Canada, apparently our "indispensable" Senator Landrieu thinks it does. Along with not knowing her US Geography, and anti-gun stance, we'll be doing everything we can to vote her out in 2014.

    Check out this website, it's designed for ladies and gun related info. It's a very good resource.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Welcome to the forum, from Virginia. You are wise, paper won't help much. The police can't be there until after. Learn to defend yourself, train, train some more, and when you think your pretty good, train some more.
