Hello from central Illinois everyone. You can call me Turp or anything except late for dinner. I've never "owned" a gun of any kind before yesterday. I have been researching the sport and all the weapons on the market for a couple of years. It started when I witnessed a gang style shooting within 50 yards where my wife and I were having dinner. at that point I hadn't ever paid any attention to all the gun debates and law activities. That being said I was going to go buy a gun and start carrying, only to find Illinois sucks butt and doesn't have a CCW on the books. But now that it will happen I pulled the literall trigger and started with something modest. Taurus PT 111 Gen 2.

I should be able to shoot it first time this weekend. Glad to meet everyone, and please let me assist you in any way I can.

Welcome! I hope the new law in Illinois will make it easier for people who travel with concealed weapons to "pass through."

Welcome from Northern Illinois! Congrats on the new pistol and seriously consider taking some gun courses if you have access in your area.

Joining the Illinois State Rifle Association and sending our a few hundred emails and phone calls to our Legislators would also be a good idea also as they are always trying to find new ways to curtails our natural rights to bear arms and defend ourselves.

Welcome, you may want to entice your wife to at the very least take the safety courses as well. The right time to figure out how to use a gun is NOT when you need it.

You might be surprised, my wife was not interested at all, but once she started firing, she never looked back!
