    Hello from NC

    New guy here from NC. Been carrying for about 3 years now, EDC is a Glock 30 with 230 gr. Winchester Ranger +P SXT with Taurus 85 loaded with 147 gr. Federal Hydra-Shok +P+ as a BUG if wardrobe allows.

    About me:
    - Nationally Registered EMT-Paramedic since 2003
    - Work for a Fire Department in a major urban city
    - Work for a wilderness medicine consulting and training company
    - Have trained with 2 "SWAT"-style teams as a tactical medic
    - Have cared for 15 gunshot wounds in the field
    - EMT, EMT-I and EMT-P Instructor

    Interests:
    - Hunting, specifically waterfowl
    - Boating, I serve as a mate on vessel deliveries up and down the Eastern Seaboard
    - Medicine, specifically the early detection and prevention of heart disease


    Disclaimer:
    I am a staunch defender of the .45 ACP cartridge, which I believe to be superior to all other calibers for defensive purposes. I am also a staunch believer in carrying a service caliber weapon with proper JHP loadings. I've cared for a guy who got shot 3 times in the chest with a .32, he was walking and talking on his cell phone when I got to him. Don't entrust your life to a "mousegun".

    Looking forward to getting out on the boards, you've got a great forum here.
    "Therefore, since the world has still
    Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure
    Luck’s a chance, but trouble’s sure,
    I’d face it as a wise man would,
    And train for ill and not for good."
