Greetings to all from the Heart of Dixie! My name is Tim and I am 44 years old. I have a congenital heart condition that is the cause of my disability. I have enjoyed guns and hunting/fishing for as long as I can remember. I look forward to getting to know you all here! Now I am going to take a look around, so I will talk to you all later on!
What do ya carry
Welcome! Never would have guessed your locale based on "Crimson Tide"!
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Tim - welcome to the CC forums - hope you'll enjoy a browse thru what is in effect (I hope) a mine of info.
See ya around!

Hi there Crimson T.

How about Tide football this year, huh? Awesome!Originally Posted by CrimsonTide
I would've liked to beat Auburn, but I guess we can't have it all!
What part of Alabama are you from?
I grew up in a little town called Ohatchee, between Anniston and Gadsden. I call Northwest Florida home now.

Uh, I had to say that. Welcome from your friends in Auburn.
Six for sure...Uh, I mean Five. Five for sure..
Welcome and a generous RTR!! to you. Be careful about what you say about the Tide, Chiefs-Special-Guy works for Auburn
Welcome aboard. I'm from LA (Lower Alabama). Good to have you join us.
For God, Family and Country!
Nice to meet you, I'm Ben.
Thanks to all for the warm welcome!
A little more about myself: I am from LA too. Greenville to be specific. I got married this past Nov. My wife is from the Atlanta area, so Georgia is kinda like a second home now. She is a city girl but not against shooting or hunting. (She doesn't have a desire to hunt, but does want to learn to shoot!)
I have lots of friends that are Auburn fans, so I pull for Auburn when they are not playing Bama. Well, sometimes anyway! I do not take it to the extreme like some do. Friendships are far more important than that.
Right now, most of my handguns are revolvers. I have two 38's that are my CC guns and a stainless 4" Ruger GP100. My carry guns are a 3" stainless Taurus 85 (pre-internal lock) and a 2" S&W Model 10. I have been carrying concealed for 23 years. I have never had any close calls and am thankful for that. But, there have been a few times that I felt really good to have my gun on me and a few times that I wished I did when I wasn't carrying.
I have looked around a little here and am pleased with this site! There are tons of helpful info here. I am sorta looking to get another auto soon, so I am doing some research now.
Once again, thanks for the warm welcome and I hope to become friends with you all!
