Hi all, I am Steve. Found this site on a recommendation from a friend. I am looking to buy my first pistol and he thought I could get allot of info here. My wife and I do allot of hiking in bear, cat, and scumbag country. I hunt and have had a couple close calls with cats and bears. I used to work downtown by the train station and had a couple, too many brushes with dealers and users. Starting the CCL process, too. When I am not doing those things, I work (surveyor), brew beer, obsess too much about football. (NY Giants fan) I am not much of a "poster" but will certainly ask questions and appreciate all the info I have already gotten and expect to get.
