    Hello Everyone,

    The name is Mike. I live in New Hampshire and I am a recent gun owner (just bought a Glock 19 over the weekend it is presently unloaded and not available for home defense until I hit the range with it and my intended defense rounds). Also new member of the NRA.

    I decided to carry after thinking about my responsibility to protect myself and my growing (two young kids under 4 and wife) family. Also in the decision was my love for this country and our constitution and really thinking about the Second Amendment. I pray I will never even have to draw it for defense of self, family or others but I would rather have it in that unlikely event than not have it and be wormfood or see my family become wormfood.

    I'm one of them Bible believing types so I guess this new gun friendly state of affairs in my life makes me a "Bitter Clinger". Oh well :)

    I have taken the 101/102 handgun courses from the sig sauer academy up here in NH. I will be taking some of the NRA courses and will not even think about carrying concealed until I have more time on range and take the concealed course(s). Plus I need to see if I can actually manage to tuck in a shirt (business casual dress for me most of the time) with a Glock 19. If not well then there's an excuse to make another purchase
