Hi, I'm from east central Iowa and am a newbie regarding handguns, CC etc. My wife and I live in a rural setting and have long considered "getting something" for protection. We own shotguns and small caliber rifles, but no handguns. I've just submitted an application to purchase, and we will be attending a CCW class soon - hopefully next Wednesday schedule permitting. Politically, I consider myself a conservative - but not rabid - constitutionalist. I'm alarmed at what is being done to our rights on a daily basis, and figure that it will only become more difficult to arm ourselves for SD. So we are jumping in. Other than a few questions, I'll probably be pretty quiet here. Nice to meet you all.

Thanks Rarity. I obviously have a lot to learn but can't wait to get started. At this time I have no desire to carry, but want to take the CC course anyway and go from there. Looking forward to it.

Welcome from southeast Iowa. Couldn't agree more with your stance on where it seems our rights to self defense are diminishing.

Welcome from Mississippi, so are you a Hawkeye or a Cyclone fan? I have had the pleasure to watch the Hawkeyes play Wisconsin at Iowa in 2010 and went this year to see the Cyclones play Oklahoma. Great atmosphere at both stadiums and everyone was very nice. Again, welcome and enjoy the site. Ed

Thanks eborden1122 - Hawkeye all the way, although I must admit that both of our boys got their undergraduate degrees from Iowa State which is another fine school.

Thanks to everyone who has made us feel welcome. As soon as I can figure out how to answer a message, I'll take care of that too! :eek:

Enrolled in a CCW class that meets for 4 hours this Wednesday. I'm looking forward to it.
