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.

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

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.
