    Hello from California

    I've been lurking for a while and making a few posts, but since my permit arrived today , I guess it's time for a more formal hello. This is a great forum, lots of good information. It's good to see the vast majority of posters here recognize that carrying a gun a serious matter, and using it, even when fully justified, is likely a life changing event. I hope I never have to use mine, and I will do everything I can to avoid being in a situation where I need to use it, but I refuse to be a victim, and I will do whatever it takes to protect myself and my family. Hmmmm, too late to go to wally world tonight, but first thing tomorrow...
