Hello To All From South Carolina
Hey everybody I'm Nick. This is my first post to kinda break the ice I suppose. I've been to this site a few times and enjoyed what I saw, so I chose to join in order to gain more feedback and info.
I am not permited to carry a firearm at this time. I completed my class and sent in my application around a month ago and I'm still waiting for my permit. I figured now is a perfect time to continue learning from the more experenced before the time comes.
I work as a security officer currently where we are unarmed. Hopefully shortly work will be the only place I have to be unarmed. I hope to become a police officer within the next few years, its been a goal of mine for several years.
I currently only own one handgun, it is a S&W M&P 40 full size. I have been told it could be a little large for a carry weapon. I'm not a small person and have large hands it fits in much better than many of the compact handguns I've held. I guess I'll find out, any input would be helpful.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope to talk with yall in the future.

The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

Glad to see that theres others close by. Blitz I've got a Fox IWB that I recieved last week tryin to break it in still. It's been pretty comfortable so far, better after it loosens up I'm sure. I guess I'll find out after a full day with it.

Welcome from Ohio!
If I can AIWB a 4" barrel S&W SD40VE, you should be able to carry the M&P.

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