    Newbie Old Guy

    I am a retired h.s. music teacher who decided the following: too old to fight, too tired to run, perhaps it's time to buy a gun! And learn how to use it of course. That was last March. Last week I bought a Kahr K9 and am in love. Following the Heller Decision I joined the NRA! and joined an indoor range. In order to afford my ammo habit I am now a part-time process server. I am looking forward to learning from the folks on this forum.

    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.
