    new to site

    during online shopping for a gun, I came across this site.

    I am very new shooter, got my concealed carry last November after someone made me believe he was going to shoot me in moving traffic through the back window of his pick up truck.
    Owned a semi automatic for a short while, but it just didn't have my name on it and I sold it again.
    I have it narrowed down to a Taurus Ultra Light, 38 special.

    Two days ago I guy decided to snoop around my backyard at 8.30 pm. It turned out to be a neighbour a few houses down the street looking for his cat, but he had a baseball cap pulled deep into his face so I didn't recognize him. The entire police department was looking for him. He is lucky I didn't have my gun any more or he would have been close to getting neutered.

    Anyway, I guess I needed this incident to finally push me to seriously hunting for a new gun.

    I will post my wanted ad in "market place".
    Question: can't post wanted ad. Any ideas why?

    Welcome from Montana. Wave:

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,

    that sucks because I will mostly be lurking and learning more about guns and concealed carry. There's not much I can contribute at this time. As I mentioned in my introduction, I am a newbie to shooting and owning a gun for self defense. Luckily I have friends that have been doing this for years/grew up with guns and they are all very supportive and helpful.
    But I thought trying to educate myself, too, by joining a concealed carry forum is a good idea.
    Bummer I can't post a wanted ad.

    Welcome from a fellow Buckeye and new guy. Here is a forum for Ohioans, Ohioans For Concealed Carry Discussion Forums • Index page. I am posting this link because they have a b/s/t forum with no post count required plus all sales are in Ohio so no need for shipping.
    We can't stop here...this is bat country.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome.

    This site seems to be extremely busy.

    And I tell you, everywhere I go, people are stocking up and guns and ammo. The shelves are empty. As soon as a new truck comes in, people are ripping it out of the store's hand.

    I can't even buy a Taurus Ultra Light, none available, unless I pay $ 450 at a small, local gun store. But that seemed a bit steep.
    Lock and load and let ‘em tell it to the judge. It’s good to be insured by Smith and Wesson.
