    Marie from Western NC

    I am from the mountains of NC. I am a retired (disabled) food service assistant manager. I have been associated with guns - pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns all my life. From the time I was a small child, my dad kept his long guns, - in the corner behind the front door. Loaded. Safety on of course, if the guns even had one. When my kids came along, I asked my Mom to put them up and she refused. She told me they would be taught to respect the guns and to leave them alone. My boys love weapons of all kinds and show respect for them. Both, boys - men now- own all kinds, from rifles, shotguns, and pistols to a compound bow.
    I am wanting to get my Conceal Carry Permit, so I want to learn all I can about guns. My husband bought me a Ruger LCP, and a Marlin rifle, 22 to start.
    He is a former Army marksman and he is starting my education.
    I am looking forward to being a member of this forum.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
