Hello all! I have little to offer and much to learn, unfortunately. I have always been interested in firearms but my wife has been less than enthusiastic so it's always been something I've had to keep on the backburner. Recently, with the shooting at the Aurora movie theater here in Colorado followed up by the shooting in CT, my wife now sees the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. I have been reading up on reloading and would like to get into that as well. I've recently bought a .40 cal handgun and am signed up for a conceal carry class toward getting my carry permit. We live in some very unpredictable times and I want to do what I can to put the odds in my favor that should shtf, I'll be more ready than where I am now.
