    Hi everyone!! This seems like a cool place to learn. I discovered guns last year with the help of my brother .......and Ive never looked back since (not even at the credit card statements:D ) I have always been Conservative but never "got into guns"......until now. I love American History and Politics. I'm a new Conceal carry member of Minnesota (which will be a red state this year!!) And a big fan of the concealcarrymag.com Once I read "Nation of Cowards" by Jeff Synder...My thoughts on Liberty, responsibilty, freedom, and this country.....matured....big time. Before last year I really never gave any money to anything....once again, My thoughts on Liberty, responsibilty, freedom, and this country.....matured....big time. So I look forward to learning from everyone.
    Thanks

    high on passion...low on money

    Let me be the first to say welcome aboard, and welcome to the wonderful world of firearms.

    You will learn a'bunch from the members of this board, some of which are very learded in their respective areas.

    Again, Welcome

    Welcome!
    Great first post! Guns and books! The fact is that intellectual development, personal responsibility and freedom are all part of us gun nuts.

    Welcome! You’ll find a good amount of information on these pages.

    A book I would recommend you take a look at (if you haven’t already) is “Everything You Need To Know About Carrying A Handgun In Minnesota,†written by Joel Rosenberg. Very informative and practical. His website is www.ellegon.com, split between conceal carry issues and his authoring of books. Joel also teaches the conceal carry class in the twin-cities area.

    Welcome.

    Not everyone here is Conservative, but we're all supportive of responsible gun ownership and individual responsibility for owning any gun.

    Hi, crewsr. Sounds like you're pretty lucky to have a brother like that. I do my best to be a bad influence on folks I know and introduce them to the shooting sports. Allways great to see the enthusiasm and excitement of someone new to guns.

    I'm new to THR, myself, and have found the group to be interesting, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

    If you're a reader like I am, I heartily recommend "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross.

    Keep 'em in the x-ring.
