Just wanted to say hello and thanks for a very informational forum. I can see I will be spending a lot of time here!
I have had my CCW for ~20 years now but have never really exercised my right to carry (other than some handgun hunting years ago) untill recently. My wife of 5 years has recently become very interested in shooting and CC and has applied for her CCW. Up untill about 6 months ago she would have nothing to do with guns (as a child her father would drink quite frequently and had threatened her and her mom at gun point several times). We now have three boys, two of which have shown a great desire to start hunting and shooting with Dad...
In an effort to spend more time with the "boys" she decided that she would have to learn to shoot and hunt. Well needless to say she was addicted after the first trip to the range! Now all she wants to do is go to the range and shoot! Between wanting her own guns and buying ammo, her new addiction is getting expensive...LOL. It is awesome to now be able to add to my gun collection with her encouragement instead of disapproval!

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

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.
