    Hello from Fay, NC

    New member here, saying Hi. I'm not carrying yet, but after the tides started to turn in my neighborhood, I'm looking towards it.

    I have had an on-again-off-again love affair with firearms since I was a toddler shooting with my dad, though, and here lately it's been in the full on-again mode. :)

    I noticed a large (!) number of you guys seem to be in NC for some reason, so I was thinking I might hopefully meet some other people interested in shooting generally, even if I'm not among the defensive carry crowd just yet. ;)

    Working towards finding a firearm I CAN conceal on my small frame, while brushing up on my (woefully inadequate right now!) handgun skills, then it'll be CCW for me; open carry is just not an option for me personally - I'll throw it out there up front, I've got piercings and tattoos and wear my hair in a mohawk, etc, so be forewarned, if you're judgmental about that sort of thing. I'm a bit of an outcast in the shooting world, but I'm no criminal or gangbanger wanna-be or any of the other crap people like to assume...

    Anyways - Hello! :D

    Heh. I've had more piercings than I can remember, but I keep the concealable ones - Ears and septum, and a few ah, more discrete ones. Try walking into a gun shop or show with a "bull ring" and a "punk haircut." ;)

    Of course, I can take my piercings out, throw on a long sleeve dress shirt, put my hair down (Or shave it, if necessary,) and look pretty normal, which is exactly what I do on a day-to-day basis since I work in a professional field. Which is how I like it, now.

    Welcome from Big Sky Country.


    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.
