    North Carolina Noob

    Greetings from North Carolina!

    I'm entering my fifth year with a CCW permit and I'm in the process of renewing. I'm 43 years old and have been shooting since the age of 16. I'm scheduled to take the NRA instructor and basic pistol courses later this month.

    I have lurked here for the last few days and I appreciate the high level of knowledge and maturity displayed by many posters. It is a refreshing change from some of the boards which I have visited in the past.

    I own a couple of pistols (Sig and Taurus), my daddy's shotgun (Savage 311), a very tricked-out Ruger 10/22, and a couple of other plinkers (airguns, etc.).

    I get to the pistol range at least once a week and I ALWAYS carry where permitted by law.
