    Hello!

    Dear Defensive Carry.com Community,

    My name is Nathan, I hope this is an ok place to come. I live in NJ so no chance to carry here, but am getting ready to purchase my first Firearm! Im awaiting on the paper work :(. I am 27 years old, work in a local ER and finishing my Nursing Degree. I am engaged, my Fiancee being an Air Force veteran. I came to the forum to find a community that has an affinity to shoot as much as I do, and maybe to find answers that anyone in my position might seek especially in my wonderful state! So Be patient because sometimes my questions may seem stupid, and I apologize for those ahead of time but thank you for the opportunity to be here!



    Nathan

    Welcome from Fort Worth, Texas. I left New Jersey as soon as I could and I recommend that others do the same.

    Welcome Nathan.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    The Southeast is better than either. Here in Virginia, you can open carry. The concealed carry "test" online took about 15 minutes. The test, $50 and a clean record gets you a concealed permit in a mandatory 45 days (mine took 3 weeks). The approval for getting a gun takes just a little longer than getting a credit card approval. The last 3 I bought took about 15 minutes each from entering the store to leaving with my gun. I can't imagine paying the taxes it takes to live in NJ. live in the Virginia mountains because Northern Virginia was to big city for this country boy.

    Welcome here Nathan. Agree that NJ is a tough sell on the 2A (someone should bring this up to your Stay Puff Gov)... Anyway, besides leaving the great state of NJ, why don't more people get involved and fight to support the 2A in that state. Not aimed at you as an individual (not personal - heck you are on this site!), but Sheeple need to make their voices, and VOTES make a difference.

    Anyway, as a rule, do not take any advice from me! I think a couple of other longer members of this site will Second That!
