A friend introduced me to this website this evening and I wanted to introduce myself.
I obtained my CCW permit right before the end of 2007 in Wake County, NC. This is the first time I have regularly carried a handgun with me and I don't know why I waited as long as I have (I'll be 36 this year). I feel much more confident now that I care to most locations I go on a regular basis. The main reason for this confidence is the knowledge that I can defend my wife and myself if confronted with deadly force.
As I've started to browse these forums I have already started learn new and interesting information about carrying a concealed weapon and hope to continue to learn new things from this site. Thanks to those who organized this site and I look forward to providing information if I can. jkrager
