Howdy, I'm Mike from Ohio.

I've joined this forum because I'm considering getting my CCW and researching everything to decide if it's the best thing for me and if so what type of handgun will best suit my situation.

I'm also a bit of a "prepper" and am also looking into options to better fit my situation and what I view as the most likely scenarios that I feel I need to be prepared for.

I acquired a Mini-14 this spring and although I like it, I'm not thrilled with it (I deam its accuracy to be barely adequate). When finances permit me to do so, I'm thinking of getting something more accurate, that uses AR compatible magazines. I'd then like to put a folding stock on the Mini and make it a trunk gun, which I think its better suited for.

I'm a former Army Infantryman and an old farm boy who grew-up hunting so I'm definitely not new go firearms.

However, I've never really used handguns that much. When it comes to rifles, frankly there is SO much on the market for the AR-15's these days that its overwhelming and I can't really tell a good one from a bad one.

SO, I'm doing my due diligence by reading up on things so I can make informed decisions.

ANY,how, Hi I'm Mike from Ohio lol.

Warm greetings from The Great State of Texas. Welcome to D.C.com. Where the majority of its members strongly believe in the 2nd Amendment and doing away with the infringements recklessly tied to it through history.

Texas, One of eight States that refuses to label college campuses, "Gun Free Zones." One of the few areas of our Nation which continues to allow it's gun owner's to carry more than an empty gun and one bullet in their pocket. In Texas, it is an everyday occurrence to see a horse tied to a post downtown with the owners loaded long gun hanging off the saddle and no one will touch it, other than it's owner. Okay, obviously one of the above three statements referring to Texas is not exactly true any longer.

Enjoy your time at D.C. .com. You are among good people here. :smile:

I think we already have a Mike from Ohio. Sorry.
There is always room for another infantry farm guy named Mike from Ohio here. I think he'll work out OK once we get him behind a Glock or two and an AK.
