    Another hello from FL

    I'm not exactly sure why I didn't post a "hello" before, since I've been around for a bit now, either way...

    Hello!

    I'm new to guns (< 1 year), although my dad had an old shotgun around the house that he used for hunting as a boy, so I was never against them, just wasn't sure I needed one.

    My wife said we needed a gun around the house in case of a disaster. I still wasn't sure, that's until I saw the mess in New Orleans after the hurricane. I went out and bought a SIG P229 .40, and shortly after got my CWL. My wife then went and got her CWL, and a new Glock G19.

    Well long story short, I loved that G19 so I went out and bought one too! I now carry as much as possible (not at work, I'm a teacher), and wonder why I ever had a doubt about it all.

    We use a safe at home, and I am teaching my son (5 years old) to respect firearms. Interesting that my dad simply said, "don't mess with the shotgun" and it was just sitting in the closet. Of course when he wasn't at home I once took it out of it's case, but oh boy was I careful and didn't do anything but look.

    He has since passed away and I now have that old Remington 11-48. I took it out once and shot a few shells through it, but it's basically stored away at this point.

    I want a Remington 870 (or Mossy 500) and a Marlin 336 lever action rifle to complete my collection for if/when the SHTF.

    Well, that's enough ramblin'...

    This is THE finest, most civil gun forum I have found. I read a few others from time to time, but this is the one I follow the most.

    Greetings from Northern Michigan
    When the messenger arrives and says 'Don't shoot the messenger,' it's a good idea to be prepared to shoot the messenger, just in case.

    Welcome from SE Missouri.

    When I outgrew the .410 starter shotgun, my second shotgun was a new 12 guage Remington 11-48. I hunted ducks, rabbits, squirells and quail at that time. I used it so much it got worn to the point of not being dependable but a lot of ammo went through it. I liked the gun a lot.
