    <----Look... it's a new guy

    Look everybody, it's a newbie!

    Like most newbs posting here, I found the site several days ago and have been reading it pretty much non-stop since. I'm a middle aged firefighter from the upper half of SC. I love firearms of all kinds, unfortunately my bank account doesn't let me collect as many as I would like to. I have both my SC and NH(non res) ccw and I carry everywhere it's legal to. If it is illegal to carry there, I usually avoid the place. Like most of you, I'm not paranoid, scared, or looking for trouble, I'm simply exercising my rights. I believe a man should be allowed to protect his family and his property from those that wish to harm and/or steal, and I will fiercely protect the lives of those close to me.

    I look forward to reading more of the informative posts here, and hopefully I may be able to contribute, in a positive way, to some of the discussions in the future. Thanks to the owners for setting up the place, I like what you've done here. Now, I'm going to gather up a few posts and go sit in the recliner in the corner to have myself a good read.
