This is a discussion on Please don't shoot me I'm not your normal hillbilly from tn within the New Members Introduce Yourself forums, part of the DefensiveCarry.com Forum Office category; Originally Posted by Aiko Just what we need, another abnormal hillbilly form Tenn lol, welcome!

Btw here is my real reason I joined this forum. I am a 57 yo ex middle linebacker. 6'2" 247 lbs about the same weight I played at in college. Never really thought I'd need to defend myself with anything but my body. Just realized that I carried to much cash on myself at times due to my work and needed to get a permit. I took my 8 hour class and came away with a new respect for my 2nd amendment right but I also realized that with that right came a truly tough call if I ever drew my weapon. I hope to never have to face a jury for being forced to defend myself or my family but if I do I want to be justified. I came here to get a better understanding of defensive carry and I thank each of you for any help you might give me since I am new to this.
