    Hello, DC!

    Hello to everyone on the DC forum! My name is Nick, and I have been following this forum as a visitor for quite some time now. I finally got around to becoming a member so I can interact in the forum and hopefully share some of my experiences both as a civilian concealed carry advocate, and as a military combat veteran. Here is a little more about myself: I am a medic in the Vermont Army National Guard, with one combat tour in Afghanistan in 2010. On the civilian side, I work professionally for a 911 ambulance service in central Vermont. I have been a strong advocate for effective self defense, and specifically concealed carry, for my entire adulthood. I have been concealed carrying for 10 years this March. My current EDC is a Glock 27. I find myself every day working to spread a positive image for concealed carry, and educating everyone who will listen about safe and responsible gun ownership and carry. This forum, and the information I have found here, has been invaluable to me and my mission to increase public acceptance of concealed carry. This is truly one of the best gun forums, in my opinion, in terms of the wealth of information shared, general attitude, and the relevance of topics discussed here. I look forward to helping contribute to, and being a part of this fine community.

    Thank you to everyone for the time you spend here, and the experiences you share.

    -Nick

    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.
