This is just a quick post to introduce myself to this group. The status of SB 396 is what brought this forum to my attention, although there are tons of useful information in these forums and at GeorgiaPacking.org. I am a 46-year-old male from Conyers (Rockdale County, just east of Atlanta) and have lived there my entire life. Yep, I'm a true Native. I have owned various firearms in my life, although today I only own a Remington 870 for home defense. I am looking for a good personal defense handgun and am considering various calibers and prices. I certainly won't get into the ".45 vs. 9mm vs .40" debate but I will watch y'all discuss it and hopefully learn something about it. I would use it both "in the nightstand" as well as CCW. But I'm not going to spend a whole paycheck for it. Anyway, thanks for allowing me to visit. I have just finished my email letter to Perdue about SB 396.
