    Hi from near St. Louis

    Hi,

    I finally joined after reading for days. Lots of good info here. I'll post what I put in my bio so you don't have to go there to read it:

    New to CCW. Wasted many years believing life was safe. I've got a lot of time and lack of preparation to make up for.

    I was negligent by not taking care of my family better. The Virginia Tech massacre and the home invasion/rapes/murders in CT changed my life forever.

    I will never be the same again. I carry every day, and will never stop. I've taken my family shooting and have plans to upgrade and add to our firearms at the earliest opportunity.

    If you see me around town, almost anywhere except the Sheriff's office, etc., I AM armed. When I sit on my couch at night, I am still armed. It is my goal to alway be prepared for an unexpected assault or home invasion. I expect it to come when I am least prepared, so I try to never be unprepared.

    One more thing--my hobby is saving for an XD-45. I've narrowed my choice down to a compact 4" or a compact 5". If SA comes out with a 3" .45, I'll add that to my list of options. Maybe I should buy more than one.

    If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
