I am a new member from central MA. My fiance is a member... and I got sick of having to ask him to log in to read the forums.
I have grown up around guns used for hunting and I am slowly adjusting to the idea of guns used for personal defense. I am going to take the class in less than a month and will apply for my permit soon after.
Actually, surprisingly I am finding myself looking forward to having "my" gun to bring to the range, and get comfortable with and maybe (that's a big maybe) to carry someday.
So that's my hello! I am glad to be a member and am looking forward to all that there is to learn!
