    Cool New Member from West Texas

    I'm a college student from West Texas. I grew up around guns and developed a fascination with guns at a young age. The next logical step was to get my CHL, so I bought a Glock 19 for my 21st birthday and took the CHL course three months after. I carried that for around a year and decided I liked the Glock 17's larger frame so I bought one and have been it carrying ever since. I recently purchased a Taurus CIA Model 650 2" .357MAG. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but so far, everyone who finds out I haven't shot it yet just laughs and says "good luck." Anyway, I look forward to hearing others' thoughts on different topics.

    Welcome from Arizona! Take your time and decide what gun is right for you. Just remember, if it's not a 1911, it's wrong!

    Welcome from Oregon. I almost settled in Texas. Maybe I should have.

    In any case, what AZ Husker really meant to say was if it's not a Glock...

    Welcome from Kentucky! Boy, I remember those college days. Working crazy hours and trying to go to school full-time. Can't say I miss those days but it was worth it. No one can take that education away from you. Just suffer through it like the rest of us have. Seriously, glad to have you on here. Look forward to your posts!
