    Howdy!

    Hey everyone,
    I have been coming across this site many times lately and figured why not join as I have seen quite a bit of intelligent conversation around these forums on all sorts of matters of Concealed Carry. This site impressed me on how many unique situations I have seen posted about.

    I am on the younger side (24) and just recently started to carry a firearm. I have been involved with Law Enforcement for just under 2 years now as an Auxiliary Police Officer and sadly in our city Auxiliary is just that. It isn't like some of the places where Auxiliary and Reserve are synonymous. We don't carry on duty at all (granted we do get OC Spray, an ASP, cuffs, Vest, pretty much everything else). Up until I joined the Auxiliary I was one of those blissfully ignorant people to the real world and didn't see how dangerous of a world we truly lived in. It took me an extra time to save up the money but finally got my CCW earlier this year and my first firearm (hoping to pick up either a shotgun or new pistol in a month or two). Ever since I got my CCW, I do carry often, know many of the laws (partly due to research, partly due to my position), and also Open Carry as well since it is legal in the state of Ohio.

    That is a little bit about me :) Nice to meet all of you :)

    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.
