Nice to meet all you out there who make this site what it is. I'm just an average SW Washington chick who is a God fearin', gun lovin', gun learnin' gal. Nothing particularly interesting or special about me to share, or I would. For gun sake--I own some guns. I pack at least one every day, wherever I go, at home and away. I started into this after some rude awakening encounters... particularly one with a "friendly" neighbor. After a close encounter, vowed I would never stand in front of that guy or any other again without a fair fight, should the need arise. Vowed I would never put a gun in my purse as way of carrying, because I know myself too well to know the purse wouldn't be there when I needed it. I have my children to raise and protect and they are my first priority. Looking forward to hearing what you all have to say on here--looks like a great site!
