    Greetings from N.O.

    Yep, another newbie. Hello, all.

    For years I've relied on the Mark One Eyeball to avoid trouble...but between my still sparsely-populated neighborhood and a job that requires me to carry expensive tools and electronics about, I've decided I'll feel much more comfortable with something to back it up. At the moment I'm deciding on what weapon to purchase: it's going to be a considerable investment of both money and time, so I'm trying to get as much input as possible first. To that end I've been reading every book, site, and scrap of info on the subject I can get my hands on, which brought me here.

    So far, I must say I really like what I see here, and I look forward to learning what I can from you all.

    Welcome, Logicalmob from your hometown. You have stumbled upon a great wealth of info. My time here has been informative and fun.

    When it comes to deciding on a carry piece, the best advice around says to try every different gun you can get your hands on and see what fits YOU. Caliber choice is easy, anything above .380 in a semi-auto or .38spl and above in a revolver. They will all do their job if you do. Carrying a gun daily is another story. You will find too many choices in holsters, that will require more homework on your part and probably more of an investment in the long run than your firearm. I believe this is where the old saying "you get what you pay for" comes in to play. A good holster and a good belt will pay off in comfort and durability.

    Once again, welcome. And as always, stay armed-stay safe.
    FREEDOM MATTERS!
