Hello gentlemen, and ladies too!

My name is Mike, I'm 61 years young and I have been a gun owner and supporter of the U.S. Constitution most of my adult life. I just recently decided to take responsibility for my own safety and the safety of my loved ones. I have completed the required training and certification and passed all background checks and have been issued a CPL from the State of Michigan.

I found this forum quite by accident but, I have found some good information and thoughts from like minded individuals who have made the choice to be responsible for their own safety. I am not going to get on a soapbox (I know, politics are VERBOTEN!..) but, lets just say that I am very dismayed over the paths that this country is taking and the seeming lemming-like acceptance from the general populace.

I'm lucky that I have a supportive wife who goes to range with me quite often and has become quite a good shot herself! In fact, we took the CPL class together and I finally got her to shoot her qualification and get her paperwork turned in for her CPL. While I take my responsibility for CCW seriously, I still find that shooting and talking guns and gear is a lot of fun. My brother-in-law is quite the pistol fanatic and he and I go to the range every chance we get and we have a good time! I wish more people would see what an enjoyable time the shooting sports can be instead of listening to the crap and lies from our elected officials about how "evil" guns are and that anyone who defends guns is a nut case or a terrorist.

I'm also lucky that I live in a rural area, where my neighbors think nothing about having a gun or guns and believe that we do have the right to defend ourselves. Plus, we live on 50 acres and I have a small berm set up where we can shoot if we can’t get to the range.

Okay, enough! That's my story and I'm sticking to it! I'm glad to be here and I hope I can bring a little something to this forum. To paraphrase a guy on YouTube that I like (Hickock45) - "Life is good…"

Mike :biggrin2:
