Hello!

Many of you seasoned gun owners may be appalled to read my introduction but here it is.

 

I have made my first ever handgun purchase and I bought a Dan Wesson Valor .45 cal (stainless). Everyone around me told me to get a Glock 9mm and everyone said I am crazy for spending $x amount on a handgun.

 

So why? If this is going to be my first and last gun then I wanted the best that I could afford.

Bet you can’t eat just one. Oh  wait. That’s potato chips. Bet it won’t be the only one. Buckle up  it is going to be a wild ride.

Beware the man with one gun, he knows how to use it…  or he’s married and has kids.  Welcome to the DWF!

Thank you all for the warm welcomes. The funny thing is I am already pondering what my next gun will be. But I should spend a whole lot of time with my Valor first.

Welcome from Florida. Is the Isaac Walton League still up &running in Leesberg? If you don’t know about them, find out, terrific place to shoot, camp, fish on 90 acres.

 If you're going to drink, don't drive. Don't even putt.
