    Greetings from Tennessee

    Hello everyone - I am a native Tennessean who grew up with firearms. My dad taught my brother and me the rules of gun safety, and also taught us how to shoot a .22 rifle in the back yard when were young. My first gun was a Sears (Stevens) .410 double barrel shotgun. I still have it.

    I've been carrying concealed for about three years now, and it is as much a part of my daily routine as sticking my wallet in my hip pocket.

    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.
