    Just another new Kentuckian

    Been hangin around for a while, trying to learn more from other's experiences, and have enjoyed the forums thus far, so I figured it was time to make an account.

    I got my permit back at the end of July after starting the application process as soon as I turned 21. I have a few reasons I am starting to carry.

    One time, when I was about 14 or 15, I was at a UDF (gas station) and some rather shady looking individual came in to the Ice Cream parlor part of the store, and was appearing to stand in line, when suddenly he moved and his gun fell right down his pant leg and onto the floor. Being as young as I was, this terrified me. I had been raised with only a slight bit of experience with guns (my mom isn't fond of them, though not really an "anti" either, and my dad wasn't really in the picture and is a felon so it wouldn't matter if he was), and so all I could do was casually go up to the cashier and tell her what I had seen. That stuck with me, and I never wanted to feel that helpless again.

    The second event was when the girl that lived in the apartment above me was found dead. I never really learned what happened, and I was away the weekend that it occurred, so I really have no idea as to even the circumstances other than that they were having some pretty good parties the night before. It could have been suicide, drug overdose, or a ticked off boyfriend. Who knows. However, it shook me up a bit and that cemented my decision to get my first (and so far my only, though I hope to change that) pistol.

    I look forward to being a member and participating on this board, as it has helped me learn that there are more people like me in their desire not to be helpless victims, and educate myself a little on laws and gain some knowledge.
