    Hello from SC

    I just wanted to officially post and say hello to the group. I am new to CC and this forum has been a HUGE learning tool for me. I only have 1 or 2 friends who carry, and grew up in a family where guns were non-existent. I was not taught that they were evil, (It was drilled into all of us kids to deeply respect them) but they were just not any part of my life. It is nice to see so many others pondering the same questions I have, and the sage (and sometimes not-so) advice that is offered by more experienced members. I have only recently begun posting, but I have been reading this forum for over a year.

    I live on the coast in a tourist community that has lots and lots of transient low life's coming and going. Over the years I have seen too many bad situations develop and I have slowly come to my decision to CC. It took a while to get into a class, but i have completed my CWP training and I am just awaiting the Government to affirm my 2nd amendment rights with a permit. My goal is to carry as close to 100% of the time as possible, so my quest as a newbie is to find a system that is ultra concealable for my peace of mind starting out. LOTS of research has gone into what this system should be for me. I took delivery of a Sig p938 on the day of the Sandy Hook shooting; talk about mixed feelings! I figure that I will 'evolve' and eventually be carrying a full sized Glock or 1911 like it seems the more experienced CC people do, but for now I just have to get over carrying my SA pistol in Condition 1!

    The learning about firearms part is just a fun bonus to learning how to protect my family, home and business. I have always been a gear nut and guns are just neat gear!

    Thank you in advance to all for the advice and encouragement!

    Welcome from Wisconsin! Good luck in your pursuit to get a CC permit. Keep reading posts on this site & practice as much as possible. Ask questions. There are no "dumb" ones except those that go unasked. Be a responsible gun owner & concealed carrier.

    Welcome to the forum Neighbor.

    Finding range ammo right now might be a stretch but hang in there.

    Gear Nut ? You might want to consider reloading !
    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
