    Salutations from Virginia.

    Good evening, ladies and gentleman.

    My name is Jason and I live in Roanoke Virginia.

    The snowy weather led to me digging around for carry information and I found this forum, which seems to be very informative and full of camaraderie.

    Just some basic information about myself: I'm twenty-six years old, married and have a daughter who will be turning three very soon. I currently work in retail and am enrolled in school full-time, pursuing a degree in English and a teaching license.

    I grew up around firearms. Hunted through my childhood and teenage years. In recent years, as I struck out on my own, I grew separated from the world of firearms and that is something I want to correct.

    After doing a little research, I purchased myself a used Hi-Point C-9 pistol for about $140 last week. Critics can hush - it goes boom and puts the slug pretty close to where I want it to when I pull the trigger, so unless you're sending financing for something fancy, I don't want to hear it.

    I'm also going to be applying for my concealed weapon permit and joining the NRA as soon as finances allow.

    I'm starting to get a little long-winded, so I'll wrap this thing up. If there's anyone in the western Virginia area who can provide some advice to me as far as reasonably priced firearms dealers, I'd really appreciate it. As you can imagine, working in retail puts quite a restraint on my budget. Anyway, I'm glad to be here and looking forward to interacting with everyone.

    Welcome to the forum. You are correct, there is a lot of info, and some great conversations here. By far the most civil forum I have ever been on.

    And welcome back to the wonderful world of guns.

    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.
