    Hello from VA

    Hey all. I am retired Army and just purchased my first Handgun(almost ashamed to say that here), a Glock 17. Anyway, I have completed paperwork for conceal carry, but will spend some time at a local range before submitting. I have fired a weapon for 21 years, but I'm sure you all will agree that shooting an M16 hardly qualifies me to carry a pistol. Anyway, I'm excited and the site is very interesting.

    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.

    Welcome from Alabama
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
