    Hello from coastal North Carolina

    Hi, I was doing some research for a comment I wanted to make on another forum yesterday when I happened upon Defensive Carry. I forgot the research and spent the day here and like the respectful vibe, I felt from thread commenters. So, this morning I decided to join to learn from the members and share my two-cents.

    I spent 33+ years on the job carrying S&W revolvers (15 & 19), retiring to Costa Rica with my wife for some retirement adventures before moving back to the U.S. We relocated to Arizona and then moved after several years to coastal North Carolina when she developed chronic dry eye syndrome. When I turned 70, the government made me take distributions on my IRA, so I bought a gun safe and filled it with mostly S&W Gen3s in 9mm and .40 S&W handguns.

    I enjoy at least once a month range time and am blessed with nice weather that makes for pleasant trips year-round. I stay physically fit to stay healthy and keep up my shooting skills. I'm looking forward to spending some quality time on the Defensive Carry Forum.

    Welcome aboard from one of your sister states, Virginia. Good to have you with us. In which part of coastal NC do you reside? I have friends and family in your state.

    Thanks for the welcome message. My wife and I live halfway between MCAS Cherry Point and the birthplace of Pepsi Cola, New Bern, NC. It is an area rich with active and retired Marines, Navy, Coasties, and Army folks.
