Just came across this site a couple days ago. I'm pretty new to firearms generally - wasn't around them much growing up and just never really thought about them all that much. Then I had a daughter a couple years back and it dawned on me that I was now responsible for her protection as well. Bought my first gun around that time and discovered it wasn't just a means of protection and self-reliance but also a great new hobby. Have been slowly growing my collection since. I still have a lot to learn, and this site seems like a great resource. Glad to be a part of it.
