Came across this forum while searching online and decided to sign up. Noticed that I appear to be the second new member from NC from just today.
The wife and I are newbies to firearms. We became interested a couple of months ago when my wife's uncle brought his with him when her family visited from Ohio. He and I went to a local range and I signed up for membership. I brought my wife in the following weekend, kicking and screaming "I don't wanna go". Spent some time watching a safety video with her at the range, got some tutelage from the staff and put the gun in her hands. She was another case of first time she shoots the look of shock turns to one of "that was kinda cool" and she decided to join too. The membership for six months included the CCW class, which we both took a couple of weeks ago. We go this Friday to apply for our concealed carry permits.
In the mean time, we've been going to the range on the weekends and doing a lot of reading and research. It has certainly been an eye opening experience. Even though we don't own any of our own guns yet, the education we've received alone has certainly changed us. I find myself at a much higher state of alertness when out and about and making a point of practicing restraint while driving, keeping in the mind set that I need to hold myself to a higher standard now.
