Well i live right on the boarder of NC and VA. I go to school in NC and work in VA. I live on 300acers, so as you can imagine, (living out in the sticks) i'm familiar with guns. It's kinda a must when everyone around you hunts and carries. The real deal is, i know about guns but nothing about the laws, it was never an issue with me. I kinda went around with the attitude of, "My land, my laws.". Not that i hunted out of season or what not, just i never looked into gun laws, regulations, etc.
When i began going to college i noticed a LOT of people carrying guns. Yes, guns on campus! Which was nice because our campus has punks and rednecks, the good thing is the rednecks may be out numbered but know how to shoot. We have a gunsmith course as well as a course for a CC and such. That got me thinking.
Then i got a job in VA and noticed my boss carrying. That really got me thinking.
Now i'm turning 21 and seeing as the normal celebration of drinks at the bar would be nothing new for me, i figured i'd celebrate with a purchase of a handgun and get my CC... So i figured it was time to learn some stuff. I've decided on the cz-82 as my first gun for a number of reasons.
Anyway, glad to be here and looking forward to learning some new stuff.

nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.

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.
