    Default Texas here

    Hi everybody!

    New here and just getting into firearms!

    What spurned me to consider ownership was an acquaintance of mine from high school was shot and killed in a parking garage near my house. It was a tragedy for the community, but what got to me is that it has been a year and the shooter has not been identified, let alone charged. I always assumed even if you couldn't protect yourself from all threats, in this day and age, the police would certainly be able to identify someone who brazenly gunned someone down in public and bring them to justice. Guess not.

    Sorry if that was dark, but this has me wanting to take my protection into my own hands. I am looking to buy my first gun soon and plan to get my concealed carry license as well. Was hoping to come here to lurk and ask questions to get better informed!

    Welcome from NJ! Get some safety and shooting training and lots of range time. Know your laws and your exposure if you carry, print, draw and fire and especially if you take a life. It’s complicated.

    This is good advice.

    Welcome. Sorry for your bad experience. It's unfortunate that at times something like this needs to happen for people to realize the police cannot protect us. At times like those that people realize the importance of our freedoms and why they are framed in the constitution.

    Welcome to a great forum.....
