    Hello all. I was googling around looking for a place to purchase a handgun locally and stumbled upon this place. I am not much of a gun person...but I figured it was about time to look into something for home protection. Im not new to guns really...I was in the army where I qualified expert with a M16, 45 and 9mm....but that was 20 years ago and I havent fired or even thought of a weapon since.

    Anyways..I will be looking around...reading up...and hopefully asking some intelligent if not very informed questions.


    :)

    Hey-o.
    Very pleasing to see you have revived your interest.
    In the past 20 years, there has been considerable change in this "hobby".
    In my opinion, the future of firearms revolves around concealed weapon licenses AND a CWL is just as essential as your first handgun. The two go together!!
    The pistol cartridge of The Future is .380ACP. Revolver - .38Spl.
    Happy Trails,
    Fritz
