    Hello from Ohio!

    I'm aquired my new CCW today. I took the class a few months back after talking it over with my husband who had taken it a year before me. He encouraged me to take it based on incidents in my past, and I also decided that I never wanted to be a victim again. I am a tiny 26 year old lady who is now ready to defend herself and her family if need be. My first weapon of choice was the S&W BG 380. I could handle it, and it's size was good for my smaller hands. I came to this forum a lot before signing up and received a lot of good information which I was incredibly greatful for.

    Hi kayaly2004! Welcome to the forum from Texas. This is a great place to learn and to share! I carry a 3rd Gen Glock 30 SF. Congrats on getting your CCW permit and for deciding to defend yourself and your loved ones.

    Good things come in small packages, and that goes double for a well-armed citizen. Absolutely!

    Glad to see you're taking full and complete control over your own safety and security. There's nothing like the responsibility, and the accompanying realization that you have every chance of surviving violent attempts on your life or the lives of your loved ones.

    Congratulations on the new CHL. Welcome to the forum, K. Glad to have you.


    BTW, if you haven't already done so, pick up some good reading material:

    • In The Gravest Extreme, by M. Ayoob.
    • The Gift Of Fear, by G. de Becker.
    • On Killing, by D. Grossman.
    • Just 2 Seconds, by G. de Becker.
    Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.
