Hi all, I have been reading the forums here for some time and just decided to join. I was a gun owner in my early 20's and have not had one since being married 12 years ago. But do to the recent violence around my house, my wife is now a converted gun supporter. So here I am learning what I can and getting ready to buy my first gun in a long time.

Welcome to the forums. Sorry to hear about the recent increase of violence in Fresno. You live on the west side of the 99? What area are we talking about here?

Colt-45,

I live next to City College. We had two shootings about three months ago. Bulldog gang members was one and a shooting just on the next street over a week or two from the bulldog shooting. I have a police scanner on my iPhone, so when I here gun shots close by I can get an idea of where they are and what's going on. I live in a nice neighborhood, but not nice around us. We here gun fire all the time, more so in the summer, but as of late, it seems closer to the house.

Welcome to Calguns !!!

If your plans are to have a home defense weapon, make sure you guys get more training then you'll need. No one can have enough training, especially when stress/fear is factor into the equation.

Bjl333,

I agree a 100% on the training. I am already looking into The DFT training center that is located near me. Probably going to take a class next month. I just can't decide what I want yet. I use to have only 9mm's and I am looking at Glock and S&W .45's right now. But I just can't help wanting a AR too. Thanks all for the welcome and advice, keep it coming.

Welcome. Fresno? You might want to think of getting a couple of weapons. Remington or Mossberg shotgun. Good Luck.

Welcome to Calguns. I myself was a returning gun owner when I joined this forum a little over 2 years ago.

I like the tower/downtown area but it's weird how spotty it is for really nice neighborhoods and a few crappy areas. I've moved a few times and I'm slowly working my way farther south. Just barely made it South of Shaw not too long ago.

Check the Social Group (link in my signature), there's a discussion going about a group of us heading up to DFT pretty soon.

I'm between City College and Fresno High. Last summer when the muggers were prowling Tower District and robbing people on their porches I kept my .357 close. I often sit on my porch smoking cigarettes and I usually have my little friend tucked away.
