    Just wanted to say hello,

    Hi everyone. Name is Alex. 33 years old. Very cool site. Just recently received my CCW permit here in Nevada. Looking forward to learning as much as I can, I have lots of questions and thoroughly enjoy learning from other knowledgable people who have years of experience.

    I'm still very new to the world of handguns. It was only 6 months ago that I had ever even shot a gun, was never really interested in them, and honestly I had a bit of fear towards them. After seeing how things are going with our awesome government over the past few years I figured now was the time to exercise my right (before its taken away) and become a responsible gun owner. With how crazy the world is these days, protecting my family, my home, and myself has become very important to me.

    At the moment I own two hand guns. A Glock 17, this is for home defense. My EDC is an XDs45.

    I recently sent the XDs back to Springfield for the recall. Although this is a good thing, it kinda sucks since the recall came out literally 3 days after I received my permit, bummer. So at the moment I'm without a carry. Looking to get another 9mm in the meantime, possibly a Glock 26, or an M&P Shield.

    Anyway, look forward to being apart of the board, thanks,

    Alex

    Welcome from the PRM!

    You could definitely carry the 17 while you are waiting on the Springfield to return, but just as good a reason to pick up it's little brother the 26 and carry the 17 mags as well....


    Happy shopping!

    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.
