    I'm pretty new to guns. Shot my dad's shotgun a few times and things like that but a couple of months ago I was in a situation that made me afraid of not being able to defend myself (not much of a big deal just worried about a drug addict that was pretty unhappy after I called the cops on him for stealing from my purse - this guy knew when I was at work alone and what time I closed the store)... So I bought a handgun and took a class at the shooting range to learn about it and how to use it. I've been practicing with it and got my carry license a couple of weeks ago. Now I don't leave the house without my S&W Bodyguard.

    I like to be as informed as possible and this place seems like a fun place to ask questions and have conversations. So hey from West GA :righton:

    Welcome! And congratulations on becoming personally invested in your own protection. There are lots more women carrying these days, and I think that's great.

    Welcome! Be forewarned - we have a pretty high ratio of grumpy old men here, but the information's still pretty good!

    I've got some experience dealing with grumpy old men so maybe it'll be alright! LOL
    I'm really digging it so far. It's the .380, seems really smooth. Only problem I had was getting a grip cause it's so small but the extra clip is a bit longer and makes it much easier.

    Apparently they were already looking for him because he had warrants and they did finally catch him a couple of weeks later. According to the Douglas County jail website, he's still there and the judge denied bond. I imagine he'll be doing some time in prison soon.

    Oh, I'm there. I just don't let him out to play very often.
