Had to make my first post in the Sam's Club thread as I'm so excited about West Coast Armory taking that over. I have been shooting for about 1 year. I never had any desire to get a gun, let alone 4 of them no, but my wife and child are too important to me not to have some form of self defense at home so I spent HOURS researching and studying and then bought some firearms for home protection. I am an avid outdoorsman...kayaker, climber, traveler...but sit at my desk all day as an accountant dreaming about my next adventure. I hope to instill that outdoor desire in my son so he can explore and enjoy the world as much as possible. I have been reading this forum for a few years but finally decided to join...have learned a lot from many people and hope to learn so much more in the future. Merry Xmas! J.
