I was referred by my dad, PhilGoings. Maybe I can get him to be more active.
I pretty much grew up around guns. We hunted and shot for fun, reloaded even archery for a few years. The past 10 years or so though I've been more or less out of the firearm loop as other than work I focused mainly on different bands I played in. Now I've retired from that and with things getting worse rather than better I'm getting back into firearms. My wife just bought her first gun and we plan to take a class mid-March and get our concealed carry permits.
I'm here to be a sponge and catch up on 10+ years of information.

Thanks everybody. Parrisk, where I live it's actually fairly urban, but even though I live within pistol shot of Ohio across the river I can drive about 20 minutes in any direction and be in the boonies. It's one of the really nice things about this area.
