    Greetings from Iowa

    Hello all

    I'm from Jefferson County in Southeast Iowa, one of the few counties in this mostly great state where getting a ccw permit is not easy. I'm 23 years old. I do not yet own a gun but I've got more than enough $$ saved up and I figure it's about time so I've been studying my options.

    I have a bachelor's degree in Computer Science but due to my lack of work experience and sub-par job searching/interviewing skills I'm currently working at McDonalds.
