My name is Chris. I have had my ccw at the age of 19, now 22 working at the county jail as a correctional officer. I recently qualified with the local sheriffs department to carry for the county. (just to float my own boat I qualified top 5% in the dept.)
I have an xd 45 for carried protection- 357 mag for hunting- 38 special, 40 carbine, Ar15, sks, and multiple shotguns for home defence.
My neighbors said I was an excessive gun nut on my home protection until I had to protect my girlfriend and home one night. One of the neighborhood houses and my home were robbed by 2 armed men. My house was the last mistake they made.
Now my neighbors are getting ccw permits and arming themselves. Its sad to see a good neighborhood scared out of their wits from a small robbery when they should have been protecting themselves in the first place.

Glad the home defense went well for you, and that others are now taking responsability for their themselves as well.
Welcome from South Carolina.
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
