    New to Carry

    Have handled guns most of my life, but am totally new to CC. Very concerned re legal aspects of simply defending my family; that fear prompted by some of the horror stories that I've read, and that I've found to be real. Looking to learn all I can from you folks, so that my only fear is can I effectively defend myself.

    welcome, now that you are carrying consider finding a good SD trainer and taking a class or two, there's whole lot more to being able to defend yourself and your loved ones than just carrying the thing around

    Welcome Aboard from down Georgia way!

    Whatever question you have......and you'll have a few....it's probley been discussed here before. Use your google-fu and look through what the members here have sounded off on and ask away on your own thread. The people here are good, experienced 'carriers' and our Mods keep the chaff down like no other fourm on the net. You found a good place to look-up stuff and just hang around.

    You and I are similar animals, and I have read a number of dads on this forum with the same concerns as yours, we are not alone...
    Just cause you're paranoid, doesn't mean you're wrong....
