    Hello from Illinois

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm a new forum member from Illinois. Have been hunting, shooting most of my life, but as you know we can't carry in Illinois. I'm planning to move to Texas in a year or two with my new wife and am looking forward to carrying responsibly when I get down there. My Florida CCL is in process. Home protection weapon right now is FEG Hi Power 9mn but will likely look for a more concealable gun when I get to Texas. My main reason for joining this forum is to learn as much as possible about concealed carry, home defense, etc.. in the remote (hopefully) chance I am forced to defend my family.

    Hi 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.
