    New Guy from East Tennessee

    Hey everyone. I've been browsing the forums here for the past month or more, absorbing as much info as I can get. Never owned my own firearm before but have shot plenty of models and calibers at the range the half dozen times I've gone. I'm looking at buying a PT 809 as my first pistol, mostly for home defense and range shooting. I'm a big proponent of being ready for whatever the day throws at you, practically speaking (i.e. most anything but zombies), and carry a decently stocked EDC bag wherever I go. I've gone through some minor natural disasters like tornadoes and some flooding and have seen, even in more rural areas, how desperate the unprepared can become in a short period. I wouldn't consider myself to be a shining example for Ready.gov, but that's my aim. Becoming armed and responsible is the next thing on my list, and I feel like the people here can get me there.

    So let the welcoming commence!

    Welcome from West Texas! Glad to have aboard. I'd be interested in what you include in your EDC bag.

    Welcome from East Texas to the best gun forum on the internet.
    Always remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle your targets
    Reduce them to shreds
    Reuse shoot them more than once
    Recycle whatever is left over

    Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Stupid is the refusal to do anything about it.

    from the Florida Keys!
    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.
