    Hello from Occupied America, New York.

    Decided to introduce myself after just reading the forums for a bit. Originally from NYC and moved "upstate" for school and still live here. I became more interested in the 2A as I became more politically aware. Went through all the hoops and over all the hurdles to get my pistol permit last summer and received an unrestricted permit the day before Sandy Hook.
    I carry a Bersa Thunder 380 because it felt good in my hand at the store, liked the safeties, and wanted a manageable caliber for my first pistol. I since gotten a Smith & Wesson SD40VE as a nightstand gun. I love shooting both and try to get to the range several times, which can be tough with wife, kids and a busy office.
    As a newbie I am always looking for good information and guidance from those with more experience as I did not grow up around firearms.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Welcome from Virginia.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
