    Hello from Nashville.

    I'm from a suburb of Nashville and am saying 'hello.'

    I'm not too well-read on firearms; however, I have a few friends who carry handguns... With the increasing crime here (gangs, stabbings, shootings, robbery, etc), I feel that I may need to protect myself from external threats.

    Just the other day, here in Franklin, we had a young gentleman smash a woman's head in with a bat. Man Accused Of Fatally Beating Ex-Girlfriend - News- msnbc.com

    I'm researching the right handgun for a concealed carry, so I'll be around here quite often in the future.

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
