    Hi guys I've been a lurker for a while and have posted a few times before I noticed the new member introduction section and thought I should introduce myself.
    I'm from the hills of Eastern Ky and proud of it. I love our gun laws in this state. I have had guns in my life since I was about 6-7. I've hunted all my life since then too.
    I started carrying at about 25 yrs old but didn't really conceal carry regularly until I got my permit about 2 months ago. With our open carry I didn't make it a big priority
    until I started to realize that you need a gun with you all the time to make sure you have it when you need it. So I got my permit. I'm a big fan of Springfields XDm line and the new
    XDs. I've carried and owned Glocks, M&P's, Rugers, Taurus's, Smith wheel guns, etc but settled on the XDM and have never looked back. I carry IWB and OWB but mostly concealed now.
    I don't want people to know I have a gun as kind of a self defense thing more than anything else. I'm 34 yrs old and have a wife and 6 yr old son. The same age as most of the kids in Conn.

    Without getting into any politics, I'm a big 2A supporter, I support hunting of course, and I believe in being prepared for the worst but try to have fun until then.

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

    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.
