    'Ello from Provo Utah!

    Hey everyone,

    I stumbled upon this site and simply can't get enough of it. What a great group of members with great knowledge!

    I'm at 24 year old student/programmer living in Provo studying Electrical Engineering. I'm originally from central NJ, but have been living in Utah for almost 4 years. Being from liberal NJ and growing up democrat, I never thought about owning a firearm. Hell, I was actually quite anti-firearm.

    Eventually, I stepped away from the dark side and saw the light. A good buddy of mine from Texas (yeah, leave it to a Texan) decided to take me shooting. A week later I purchased a Glock 17 (9mm) and have been going to the range consistently ever since.

    I've had my CCW for about a year now. I recently purchased a Christmas present for myself - XD-40 sc. It goes just about everywhere with me.

    Thanks for making this online community so great!

    Welcome from Kentucky! Now that you've seen the light you'll never go back to the dark side. Glocks and XDs... you'll fit in here very nicely.

    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.

    Rudyard Kipling
