Just to introduce myself, My name is Mike, I'm from Lafayette, IN and just purchased my first firearm, a Glock 22, Gen 3. For my age, I'm late getting to the game at 39 years of age. (Well, I will be Sept 29th) My wife and I filled for our carry permits a month ago. She's received hers, I'm still waiting on mine. My wife is the biggest reason as to why I'm just now getting a firearm for personal protection. We have kids and she doesn't want one in the house along with in her mind, she sees a gun of any sort as a weapon of death, not protection. She's come a LONG way and will now hold one on her own accord. Before, or her first time holding a handgun, she literally cried, it freaked her out that much. So I'm very proud of her. I get to go shooting for the first time tomorrow. We've signed up for beginner courses at a local respected shop. I've watched as many youtube videos as I can and have quickly seen the right and wrong ways of holding, handleing, aiming/stance....So tomorrow will be a fun experience. I'm a father of 3, husband of 1 (that I know of, lol). Car audio in my hobby still to this day and my music of choice is 80% heavy metal and I don't mean the average radio type either. The biggest names on the radio I listen to are Five Finger Death Punch, Metallica, of course PANTERA though they don't get much radio play here. The bands I like are Killswitch Engage, Chimaira, Eluveitie, In Flames just to give you an idea. The other 20% are of the likes of Tori Amos, Flogging Molly, Mumford and Sons, Flyod and the likes. So PLEASE, feel free to discuss music with me, I'm always looking for something new. My sports of choice, Racing. Not just the over hyped NASCAR, but WRC (my favorite), F1 and the NHRA.
