    I'm new here

    Hi, from Reno...
    I am a former LEO from The formerly Golden State, escaped to NV 12 yrs ago. After a few years of being "un-armed", I now have three handguns: a Ruger P95 with a light/laser combo( our "house" gun), a Kel Tec PF9 ( will be my carry gun) , and I just bought my wife a Bersa 380 with Crimson Trace grips (will be her carry gun).
    We started buying guns because we are afraid of our government and believe in the 2nd amendment, we're also concerned about rising crime rates due to the growing unemployment and sliding economy!

    Rob, welcome to our forum! I've been in Vegas for almost 25 years. Once in a while I visit the "Golden State" whenever I have an urge for fresh sea food. Thank you for your service as an LEO.

    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.
