    Howdy from NW GA!

    I have done some lurking...even after registering and thought it time to be civil and say hello. My name is Kevin, my friends call me Fuzzy but that monicker is taken so Fuzzyman57 will have to suffice. I am a south Florida native (second generation) but have been out of there for over 20 years. The last 10 years have been spent here in Rome, GA about 70 miles from Atlanta.

    I was introduced to shooting by my dad and brothers and probably fired my first shot from an Ithaca Sweet 16 DBS when I was shorter than the gun itself. That is not to say that I went on to be an expert or a great hunter, but I have always loved and respected guns.

    About a year ago I applied for and got a permit for CC here in Floyd county GA but have not really gotten very comfortable with CC. I am a big guy which is to say if your kid grew a punkin my size he would most definitely take first place in any state fair in the country. Aaaanyway, I don't have much in the way of clothing that is conducive to concealed carry and no holster as yet that works for me. I don't like to draw attention to myself, otherwise I might do a little more OC.

    I am happy to be a part of this group and I look forward to learning from you all. I will also do my best to behave myself although that is sometimes easier said than done.

    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.
