Hi all, and Merry Christmas!
It was Christmas 2008 that I found this forum and signed up. I had a couple of years of CC before I came here as well as a good bit of hunting and shooting as a boy. That said, the knowledge I have gained here in the last year on laws, on caliber and firearm and holster and gear, on defensive scenarios, and on smart and polite activism have been incredibly helpful. I would go so far as to say that this forum has really made me the gun nut I am today!
Thanks to the mods for keeping the place friendly; I've interacted personally with JD and Bumper over forum issues and they have been fantastic to deal with. I have also made friends and met people IRL that I first met here on DC.
So thanks for a great year, and here is to year #2 being even better.
