    Greetings from Warm Florida

    LOL
    Well I have started out cheap. I also have another very expansive hobby, salt water reef tanks. But, I like the feeling of security that I have now that I can protect my family. My wife realized that very same thing just reciently, FINALLY. I'll explain.

    Its about 12:00 am and I'm sleeping because I have to be up in 5 hours. I get woke up by my panicing wife and our dogs going nuts. Someone is pounding on our door at midnight. So I reach over and punch in my code on our digital safe. Take out Mr. Persuasion and answer the door.

    It turned out to be one of my wife's crazy friends but my wife, for once, didn't shiver at the sight of my pistol. She said that it made her feel safer. I have been saying that for 6 months now and she has been fighting me all along untill now. Anyone that can get past 250 pounds of dogs then gets to meet Mr. Persuasion.

    Now getting my wife to the range to touch and shoot it is another story. I'm working on that.
