    Hello from Summerville, SC

    Hello to all,
    I have had my permit for three years and usually carry a 38 snubbie. It just seems sensible to be ready because of all the bad guys running around these days. I was in the Boy Scouts many years ago and "Be Prepared" stuck with me.
    It's sort of like the spare tire thing: Better to have it and not need it than the other way around, right?
    Anyway this seems to be a good site to gain information from like-minded folks.
    BTW I am a licensed land surveyor (45 years+) and have always carried in the woods because of the possibility of the threat of rabies, bears, wild hogs, snakes and crazy people.

    I hear ya Slim. Never was a Scout but about got my butt handed to me a time or 2 so I learned early to carry gear appropriate for the area and conditions. I REALLY learned that when I drove my old 79 Ford Bronco. It was the most expensive truck I ever owned. That was mostly cuz I kept breaking it.

    Several times I've had to deploy my survival gear and I was still miserable but I was ALIVE.
