    Another Newbie From Ohio

    Been lurking on here a couple weeks and have learned a lot already. I'm retired USAF (24 years) and now an AF Civ working from home in NE Ohio. I grew up hunting in Ohio with shotguns, but 12 years flying F-111s gave me a good appreciation for overwhelming firepower (ya gotta love 2,000 lb LGBs ). I plan on getting my CCW this Spring and have been searching the site for ideas on carry pistols. I enjoy Walleye trolling in Lake Erie, but you aren't safe anywhere these days (last Fall a Perch guy got jacked up by 2 BGs while anchored fishing out of E72nd in Clev). I want to be prepared. Glad I found this site.

    Thank you for your service
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    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.
