    Greetings from SE Michigan

    I have been lurking around the forum for a few weeks now soaking up knowledge and now feel a bit guilty about not introducing myself sooner.

    My family has deep roots in the South but came north on Henry Ford’s promise of $5/day. Although an urban Yankee by birth, growing up I followed the traditions of the rural South. As little more than a child I started “hunting” pheasant with my BB gun in the vacant lots near my house. As soon as I got old enough I was taught to shoot a .22 rife. Later I purchased a Remington 870 to harvest small game.

    I live in a good neighborhood but it has begun to change. On my pre-dawn morning walks the dog and I now see bags of fast food garbage, beer cans and even liquor bottles thrown on the street. Yesterday I found myself looking at a bright yellow “Get Out of Jail Free” card with a bail bondsman’s phone number near a bus stop. News from the City is filled with carjacking, violence and murder. Despite my best efforts to stem the flow of time, I seem to get smaller and weaker with each passing year. I intend on being prepared should I be tested.

    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -

    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.

    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
