Hello there! I noticed on one of your previous thread posts that you carry a gun with you either concealed or unconcealed. I thought you might be interested in joining my new group called the Concealed Carry Club. Here is a link to the club:

Barron marriage?

How long would you last in a marriage with a wife who always said no? And by no I think you KNOW what I'm talking about. With me it has been years of once every three months to nothing at all. I have to find the courage to finally do something about it. Like contacting a lawyer.See More
