    Hello all

    First post, first handgun...

    I will be receiving my CWL in the next week or so. Due to two unnerving events in the past two months I've decided exercise the 2A. There is nothing more important to me than my family and I don't like the feeling of helplessness in those situations. I pray to God I will never need to use it, but don't we all.

    Anyway, there is some great information here that I look forward to. Also, I see I am one of only a few that will be carrying a wheelgun!

    Couldn't afford a Glock...

    Welcome from Michigan!

    Now, reading some more, you'll see there are LOTS of folks carrying wheel guns here (see several threads on the S&W J Frame recently, and the Ruger SP101 is a favorite too).

    Onto the issues that prompted you to exercise your rights, make sure you get as much info and training as you can to see that you do it safely, correctly and legally. If you can't afford the professional training, read the writings of professionals (Jeff Cooper, Masaad Ayoob and a host of others come to mind).

    Best of luck, and enjoy the site (lots of good info here too!).
    Regards, T Bone.
