    New and looking to learn

    My name is John, I am from San Antonio but I currently live in Alabama and I served 4 years in the Army. I got out of the Military last year. I'm looking to learn about self defense. I don't own a gun but I have a few knives, a kubaton, mini-koga and some OC.

    Welcome, and get you a gun, your gonna look funny in Bama without a gun.
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    Welcome John,

    This is a very good forum to discuss self defense.

    I would highly recommend some additional self defense training by a certified NRA instructor.

    Obtain your permit or endorsement for concealed carry first. It just takes about 8 hours of training and in most states some range qualification.

    Your military service is commendable of course and I thank you for serving our country.
