    Cool New guy out of Charlotte, NC

    New arrival to this forum. Not an expert and always learning.

    Primary focus: Urban handgun carry and defense as well as personal home defense. Primary carry is Glock or SigSauer but I also like 1911s. I prefer Springfield, SigSauer, Magnum Research, or Rock Island 1911s in .45acp. I also prefer Mossberg, Remington 870, or CZ 612 pump shotguns. Revolvers are also good to have with Smith & Wesson as a primary preference.
    NC Concealed Carry permitted since 1999.

    Primary Carry:
    Glock 19, 42, 43 or SigSauer 2022/250 unless I am feeling froggy and I will break out a 1911.

    Favorite Quotes:
    ~"The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms."
    - Samuel Adams, Massachusetts Ratifying Convention, 1788

    ~"The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country."
    - James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434, June 8, 1789

    From the Hornets, Nascar, Panthers, & now being the 3rd largest banking center in the U.S., among other things, the airport has only grown larger and has taken over out here as the 5th busiest airport in the nation in 2016.
    Huge parking decks now line Wilkinson Blvd as you are coming into the city limits just past Little Rock Rd. Now there are plans to add on-site hotels in the next 10 years >>
