    Howdy from Raleigh NC

    Hello all! New to the forum here. Been lurking for a while just reading some gret threads and decided to join up. I'm on several firearms related forums with the same username Maverick9110e (the e wouldn't fit here, lol) But Just wanted to stop in and say hello here as well. I currently Open carry my Smith and wesson M&P45 and have been doing so ever since i moved out of the oppressive state of NJ. So happy to be down here since last april with no end in sight. I'll be getting my concealed permit in a few months, mainly for reciporcity reasons and where OC is not allowed. Most likely be looking into a ruger sr9c or something similar. I got the GF involved about a year ago as well and she carries her sig p238 and loves it, we're both going to take the CC class together next month for the permits.
    Anyway, looking forward to some great discussions here on the forum. Also if there are any other NC members on here i encourage you to check out North Carolina Gun Owners It's a great "local" site with a lot of great members as well!

    Welcome from Kansas. Glad to hear you escaped nazi jersey! Nice to hear of someone open carrying sucessfully, it's not for me but I wish we lived in a society that was more accepting of it.

    Same here! I belive in both OC and CC. I feel it's a personal decision and everyone is different, and frankly as long as your carrying something, it doesn't matter how ya do it!

    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.
