    New to the forum

    Howdy all, i am new to the forum and carry hopeful. I reside in the Knoxville Tn area and have so now for 5.5 years. I am a jet engine Mech and test operator. I have recently got back into Guns as i grew up from an early age at the shooting range. Recently the wife and i were blessed with our first child and it got me thinking alot about the world we live in and the dangers it has within it. Thats when i decided to go for my carry permit which has yet to get here after 1 month and 2 days. Its like waiting for your red rider decoder ring lol. I am a former active duty Marine and am a Constitutionalist Conservative and hope that my ideals are closly related to the majority of the members here as by reading what i have it looks that way. That about sums me up, I hope to learn alot from the board.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! Congratulations on the new addition to your family. I think you'll find quite a few Constitutional Conservatives here. At least there's me, lol.

    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    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.
