    Hello from Delaware

    Howdy Peeps, new to gun and new gun owner. had a bad work related experience. i work in medical records in a prison. had a recently released inmate/rapist/sex offender follow me from a Walmart back to my mother's house trying to pull me over on my bike. when i got to my mom's house and i figured out who it was, we had what i'd call an unpleasant exchange of words..so from that i felt it was time to arm myself. i just completed the process of applying for my conceal carry,not just waiting. so I've bought two guns so far, a S&W SD9VE and a Springfield Loaded 1911. But still looking at a couple others, i'm hooked!

    Welcome from Wisconsin!

    I second the suggestion to get training. Also brush up on all the laws concerning firearms in your state. That usually comes with concealed carry licensing classes. Safety for yourself & others is of then utmost importance. You don't want any unintended discharges of your weapon.

    Hi FreakShow66! Welcome to the forum from Texas. This is a great place to learn and to share! I carry a 3rd Gen Glock 30 SF. Congrats on deciding to learn more about defensive carry and firearms and making the decision to protect yourself and your loved ones.

    I'm glad you're here.

    Welcome! I am also from Delaware, Smyrna to be exact. I worked as a CO at JTVCC, then DCC, in the mid 90's through the early 2000's. Delaware being a small state, I still run into offenders a decade after leaving the DOC. I rarely have any issue with them, but there seems to always be that ONE! Carry safe and be alert.
