    Newbie from Virginia

    Hello to all. Live in Fairfax, Virginia,... the dreaded Northern Virginia area! I have had my CCP for about 8 years but only remember carrying once in a 'seedy' area of Springfield. Need to do it more often, I guess. I NEVER see any open carry around here and it probably goes with the territory. I need to join some others around here that shoot and also to find a good range to practice. My primary interest is to inquire about certain scenarios that 'might' occur where I would need to draw or handle a dangerous situation.
    Thank you for welcoming me. This is a very informative Forum.

    XLAXX

    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.

    Welcome from Montana.


    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.
