    Smile Joining the ranks, from WA

    Hey all,

    I've been reading the forum for a while, decided to finally join. I'm in WA, work in Seattle but live out in the boonies. Being out in the middle of nowhere has its perks, but it also makes one very aware of the dangers of seclusion. In an attempt to be prepared for wild life and BG encounters, I decided to finally exercise my 2nd Amendment rights. I believe it's time for me to leave the ranks of the unarmed and uninformed and join the ranks of the armed, prepared and ready.

    I'm in the process of getting my CWP, shopping for my SD weapon of choice and researching training classes. I want to thank you all for the many useful, informative and eye-opening threads I have read since I found the forum. You guys made this choice much easier to make and justify.

    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!
