I am a former US ARMY M1A1 Tank Gunner. I have used many different type of weapons and had the privilege of shooting the 120mm Smooth Bore Sabot round as a Gunner.
When I left the Army and became a citizen, I was focused on my future, my schooling and career. Several years had past and I eventually married but never got my CHL as we call it in Texas. (Concealed Handgun License).
When I purchased our new home and was expecting my first child, I realized that I could not protect my family if someone broke into the house. I got a Shotgun and a Rifle and moved on.
3 Years later, I realized that as I take my family out around town that I may not be able to protect them away from the home and decided it was time for me to WAKE UP and get my CHL.
I could not believe it took me that long but life has a funny way of getting in the way. Once I started thinking straight, I realized it was my responsibility to protect my family and my neighbor if I ever had to do so.
