    Hello from North Carolina

    Great to find a forum for Concealed Carry that doesn't require a paid subscription! Thanks for providing this service.

    I am 48-years old, married with three grown children and 3 grandchildren. I have been using firearms since I was very young and my Dad took me shooting. I am a veteran, U.S. Army Infantry (peacetime, 1975-78).

    I got my concealed carry permit a few months ago, and recently completed a 14-hour Self-Defense Pistol training class. My primary carry firearm is a Bersa T380CC. I occasionally carry my Ruger P95DC 9mm. I have a CZ75BD 9mm and a Rock Island 1911, but I rarely carry either of those. The Ruger is my primary home defense weapon, just because I have owned it the longest and am intimately familiar and comfortable with it. The Bersa is my primary carry because of it's small size and low weight. It is a little smaller, lighter and more narrow than the standard Thunder .380.

    Other than shooting sports, I enjoy hiking, reading, travel, most outdoor activities and spending time with my family.

    Looking forward to using the forum and getting to know some of you.

    Welcome Jay 1958. I am also from North Carolina in Wilmington and just completed the concealed carry class this past weekend. I need to apply for my permit. Look forward to hearing some post from you.

    Howdy,

    I have a P-95DC that I carry from time to time. It's one of the most underrated pistols out there in my oppinion.
