    Howdy from Georgia

    Turned 21 in March, picked up a Springfield M1911A1 Mil-Spec the other day, CCW is paid for and probably on its way in the mail as I type this.

    I'm here because I'm set on concealing in this ever more dangerous world we live in, fraught with peril at every corner (this is right near Atlanta after all). Born to and raised by a mother and father whom are former police officers, the former of which is now a P.I. and the latter of which is a former US Marine (who we kidding? once a Marine always a Marine!) I myself happen to be an Eagle Scout and a staunch advocate of inalienable rights.

    Now to scrounge up some money for a good gunbelt (perhaps a crossbreed?) and a good IWB holster (can't decide between the crossbreed supertuck or the "Answer.")

    Oh, and I'm 6'0" 130lbs (trust me, I eat more than my fair share!) and a CRJU major in college as a full-time student. Damn economy needs to clear up so I can get a summer job!

    Anyways, Howdy!

    Welcome from south Georgia
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
