    Hey folks!

    Escaped Chicago 2 years ago and now live in the Carolinas. Dad had a gun business growing up but I bought my first as an adult 2 weeks ago which included a G45 MOS 9mm GEN 5 and a Ruger 556 "Pistol." Having fired innumerable kinds of firearms over my lifetime, the Glock feels like an extension of my arm and I couldn't be more pleased with my choice. I'm looking forward to learning a lot on here. Thanks for having me.

    Chicago is safe & sane, their laws are proof that laws do not work. The mayor has nothing to worry about, as she has armed security 24 X 7.

    I can't tell you...It's crazy when you look back at some of the things we thought were normal. So happy in the Carolinas.

    Congrat, and welcome from North Carolina!

    Make sure you continue on with your discovery process - with such a wide variety of suitable handguns available from very reputable manufacturers there's a very good chance that you'll find others that will suit you and your needs better :)

    20% of Chicago is awesome. I just can't afford to live there and even then the winters suck.
