    Newbie from FL

    Hi all!
    I am a new member from Tampa, going to school at FSU in Tallahassee. I am looking to begin carrying and becoming good with a handgun for a future venture a freind and I are launching in Guatemala. I currently own a beretta cougar 357sig and am looking to buy a XD compact 45 in the next couple weeks. Also as the screenname says I am an avid spearfisherman with both tournaments and commercially to make some extra $. Anyway I love the site and hope to learn a good bit from you guys!

    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.
