    A Happy Hello from Southern Florida

    Hello there all. I have never been a truthfully dedicatedly "anti-gun" person, however I have recently undergone a transition from an "I won't carry" to an "I will carry" kind of person.

    Right now I'm going through all the growing pains that entails: choosing my first gun, preparing for my CCW permit class, entertaining thoughts regarding a wide variety of holster options, researching and considering legal implications and connotations and expected outcomes should I ever find myself needing to use the gun I choose in a defensive situation.

    I am very likely to be found posting about all of the above topics to solicit all of your thoughtful and experienced feedback. In fact, I have in some cases already jumped into the fray.

    I did lurk just long enough to be able to say this: I have frequented 4 separate forums and over the past week made the decision that this forum is the one that I'll make my home. The quality and considerate thought I find evidenced in the vast majority of posts here (whether I've stuck my nose in or not) makes me believe this to be the right forum home for me.

    Kudos to the experts and 'oldtimers', and to all told, newbies included: I am looking forward to the time I will spend here.

    Michele

    Welcome from Ohio
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.

    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.
