    This just in... me

    Hi folks. Been lurking a few days and liked what I saw, so here I am.
    I used to be really into guns, buying at least one/year from the time I was 21 until mid-thirties or so. Kind of got out of it, sold some, some were stolen (my Berreta Jetfire and my..... sniff.... HK P7) and decided I needed a gun and a carry permit in lieu of 911. So I bought a Kahr P9, but didn't carry it as much as I should. Just picked up a Ruger LCP last week with a CT and this baby is going to go with me everywhere. As soon as my pocket holster comes in on Monday.

    So... here I am. I hope you can put up with my questions.

    Oh, BTW, I took a couple combat handgun courses back in the eighties held by John Farnham and wasn't half bad. I'm looking forward to starting to shoot regularly again, too. No sense owning a Ferrari if you don't know how to drive fast.

    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.
