    Intro

    Greetings from Virginia Beach, VA.

    Because of a home intrusion incident in my neighborhood last summer, I acquired my first handgun for home defense -- a Ruger GP 100 revolver.

    I have since secured my concealed carry permit and acquired three more handguns -- Springfield XD.40, H&K USP Compact .45 and S&W 60LS.

    I stumbled onto this forum doing a google search trying to find a Ruger LCP .380, as both my local shops sold out of them very quickly.

    I practice law here in Virginia and have begun carrying most places I go.

    I look forward to participating where I can and to learning from those much more knowedgable than me.

    Welcome to the Forum from Texas!
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    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.
