    Hello from Florida!

    Hi all,

    I've been lurking for a little here and a few other places, decided I should register finally :) .

    I don't currently own any firearms but I've been heavily educating myself over the past month or so and are continuing to do so. I still have yet to actually fire a firearm but hopefully I will be able to do at some point.

    I decided some while ago that would think about getting a CCW, and have decided that I will. However, I also decided that I should learn a good amount and educate myself as much as possible (including experience!) before pursuing that route. Plus, my finances have taken a tumble recently so it'll be a while before I can spend any "extra" money anyway .

    Anyway, nice to be here! Maybe one of these days I can meet up with some of the Florida folks if someone would be gracious enough to show me around a handgun and pump shotgun! :)

    Well... I'm a little too far away to show you around personally, but there is a lot of information to read here and we have a lot of Florida members that might be willing to help you out.

    Welcome from another Floridian.

    I have a pump shotgun but can't show anyone how to use it as don't know how myself yet. Sad but hopefully remedied soon enough (look at my babbling under shotgun heading).

    Welcome from South Carolina.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    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.
