    New Member From RVA

    Hello everyone, I am a new member who has been carrying a G19, my first ever gun purchase, for one year now. I carry pretty much all the time, even at home.The only exception is at work, which I am in the process of figuring out. Before I got into firearms and defensive carry I already had a self defense mindset, since I was and am still a serious student in the art of ving tsun.

    In addition to the G19 in chronological order of purchase I have a Remington 870 express 12 gauge 18.5" barrel, a Colt LE6920 socom AR, and my most recent addition a S&W Shield 9mm. A modest collection indeed, but I also earn a modest (at best) wage. I plan on growing this collection over time with my next intended purchase being an ak47. I am looking at the Centurion 39, or a Yugo.

    I joined this forum to communicate with other defensive shooters and to learn as much as possible. Firearms, self defense, ballistics, being prepared etc. are all subjects which I would like to be versed in. This forum looks awesome I look forward to being a part of it. Thanks to all senior members and administrators for making this place awesome.

    I'm assuming RVA is the Richmond VA area. Welcome from the West End.

    Welcome from Norfolk, VA

    Sounds like you're off to a good start. BTW, I have my eyes on the S & W Shield. Trying to decide if I want it in the 9mm or 40 cal. Enjoy and stay safe.
