Hello to everybody. I have been a long time visitor to the site.
I'm from South Africa. Recently bought my first pistol.
I have been hunting for more than 15 years and recently decided to do EDC due to rising crime levels near my workplace. I also want to be able to protect myself and my wife when criminals come knocking.

Welcome from Memphis. You will have to educate us on the concealed carry laws in Africa.

Glad to have you aboard, KL. Welcome! :yup:

If you're willing, it might be nice to get a (new thread) discussion going about the firearms and use-of-force related laws in South Africa. Glad to know that you're able to acquire defensive pistols for yourselves. That's not the case everywhere, of course.

Enjoy the site.

Awesome! What town are you from? Are you Afrikaans?

I have spent time there in Joburg, Pretoria, Durbin and the Limpopo Province.

I can see if I can start a thread along those lines to help spread the info.
It's unfortunate that governments go through such lengths to disarm their general populations.
We have a new fire arms act which was signed into power in 2000. (Effective 2004)
It's however not helping to curb the violent robberies commited with AK47s smuggled in from the neighbouring countries.
