really happy to finally sign on here, wanna blab a bit about why i have:
i've been reading online about various gun topics both in terms of the hardware itself but also in terms of the useage of such for personal safety as well as the general human-rights concern that we be allowed to own and carry.
and in my years of reading on those topics online, a small few number of gun forums keep popping up in my searches with a lot of helpful info, and good fair discussion.
this site has always been one of those. i've read countless pieces of good info and discussion on this very site so always knew i wanted to sign up here eventually whenever i got around to signing up *somewhere*.
so i wanted to say thank you to everyone here, you have a great forum and i've been reading here for several years now.
the boring stuff about me:
live in Georgetown KY.
owned a gun 1987.
got my ccdw in 2000.
i'm not as into the guns themselves as some, i'm not the kind of person who will be reloadng or customizing my own gun; my main concerns are personal safety from criminals, and 2ndly from possible government oppression such as witnessed in the wake of Hurrican Katrina.
but as far as the fun aspect of guns are concerned - i've basically been playing "army man" since i was a kid and my whole life
and have an affection for anything olive drab. if it's green, i probably like it.
i hadn't yet owned an XD but just recently online purchased one and will pick it up this weekend: an XDM .45 4.5" barrel, nightsights. also plan to buy an XDM 9mm 3.8" soon.
see ya around the forum!
