New from NOLA
I'm a twenty year old male from New Orleans, Louisiana. I've always been taught to acknowledge the necessity of and respect the power of firearms.
As Katrina demonstrated it is necessary to have proper home defense (I'm not sure how well known the private residence lootings were made on a national level), and other than that I'm sure a lot of you are well informed of our crime rates. I get off of work after midnight and walk home, so I'm sure everyone can understand why I'm interested in obtaining a concealed carry permit after I turn twenty-one.
From what I've seen I really enjoy this forum an the numerous knowledgable contributors.
Thanks for having me!

Welcome from West Tennessee!
We moved here from Mobile County Alabama right after Katrina, October 1, 2005. Katrina was the last straw in a long list of straws that two years.
and many smaller storms that were every bit as scary. Now we live here and we don't worry too much about the weather. It's nice.

Wow. I grew up about an hour east of Memphis. I spent a lot of time down here a few years before Katrina and was in the process of getting everything together to move here days before it hit.
I had literally moved my closest friend down here two weeks before it hit. He made it out fine and now we both work at the same place.
How are you liking Tennessee?
