Hey y'all I'm a new guy here, born and raised in rural South Florida, smack-dab between Lake Okeechobee and The Everglades aka The Muck i grew up around guns and always had an interest in them, but never owned any handguns or even shot many and just stuck with my ol' 12 ga pump for home defense. Got a pretty good paying job with a paid-off truck, no wife, and no kids. So I've got a little disposable income and figured I need a new hobby. Decided I'd get into guns because there's a lot to learn (which I love to do), you can never have too many, it's a right to bear arms which we should take advantage of considering all the blood shed to defend the Constitution, and I believe in the old saying "two things that hold their value are guns and gold".

So I intend to do some research, shoot, and buy some different guns for different occasions. But in the meantime I decided I'd buy a firearm that would be functional for home/truck defense, is low maintenance, and you didn't need to be a Navy SEAL to shoot. So last week after much research I bought a Public Defender Poly in SS. After a few days of holding it I finally got a chance to go to the woods and shoot it. I loved it! Very fun, easy to shoot, and although I'm a big man with big hands the short grip still felt great! I actually have a specific question/concern about it that I couldn't find any definitive answers for around the web, but I'll post that in a Judge-specific board. Just wanted to say hello and I look forward to learning a thing or two from y'all
