    New member from Africa

    Hello to everybody. I have been a long time visitor to the site.
    I'm from South Africa. Recently bought my first pistol.
    I have been hunting for more than 15 years and recently decided to do EDC due to rising crime levels near my workplace. I also want to be able to protect myself and my wife when criminals come knocking.

    Welcome from Memphis. You will have to educate us on the concealed carry laws in Africa.

    Glad to have you aboard, KL. Welcome!

    If you're willing, it might be nice to get a (new thread) discussion going about the firearms and use-of-force related laws in South Africa. Glad to know that you're able to acquire defensive pistols for yourselves. That's not the case everywhere, of course.

    Enjoy the site.

    Awesome! What town are you from? Are you Afrikaans?

    I have spent time there in Joburg, Pretoria, Durbin and the Limpopo Province.
    I am also a member of the Gunsite ZA forum.
