As a child, I was fortunate enough to have been taught that human life is a valuable and irreplaceable commodity. Unfortunately it is neccessary that to save life, you must occasionally take life.
When I was a kid, I was taught to respect and care for firearms. Guns were omnipresent throughout my life. My mother was alone with two children to watch for. It was never a big secret and she often let me see the weapon. She taught me everything she knew about it, which was quite a lot for a young woman with almost no professional training. My facination grew as I did. I've been around firearms of one type or another for my whole life. I've never had an accident, misfire, or had one blow up in my hands. I have studied their function, precision, and workmanship. There is very little I don't know about modern firearms, and my knowledge only slightly digresses as the age of the weapons increases.
Handguns are my specialty. I've been using one since I was 8 years old (old Ruger Single Six .22 revolver). I've expanded my knowledge since. I am a certified instructor for safety, concealed carry, and marksmanship. I, myself, have taken over 11 seperate courses on carry, concealment, tactical use, safety, hunting and more. I have recently had the pleasure of training under the expert tutelage of Dr. Ignatius Piazza and the Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. I was so impressed that I joined their First Family program and I look forward to the many hours of instruction I will recieve. I currently own a good size collection and can't wait until I am more financially able to expand it further. I currently only own practical weapons for defence and hunting.
Obviously I am very very pro-firearm. I am a member or supporter of four political firearm or second amendment rights groups. I agree with many of their issues, but I do think they can take it too far. I also understand that government is government, and if you give them an inch, they'll take the whole enchilada. The group I identify the most with is JPFO. I am far from Jewish, and honestly don't like too many of the members I meet, but you cannot argue with their points on pro-gun legislation. I've been an active member of the NRA since I was extremely young. I'm also a Life Member of the NAHC. The group that I support, but am not actively a member is SWARM (Safety for Women And Responsible Motherhood). My mother is an active member, and I truly admire what they do.
Front Sight has been under scrutiny lately, but has always been good to me. I have decided to show my support with more than just the simple link above. Check out the many links below to see just how exciting the Front Sight experience can be...
