I've been shooting and carrying for about 6 years. Shot as a kid with my Dad, but then was not involved for many years in between. Had a great friend that was a LEO that got me interested again several years ago. I've really enjoyed the shooting hobby! Became very active in our local Conservation Club and am a board member now. I am always interested in learning new things. I retired a little over 2 years ago, so I've also taken up reloading. That has been a slow learning process, but very relaxing and productive. Glad to be here on Defensive Carry! I'm sure there will be plenty to learn from the experience here.
