    As long as you can speak and write English that is fine with me.

    Hi, everyone. I've been reading various threads for a while, and finally decided to join up. I'm a long time NRA member and relatively new CHL holder from Kennedale, TX (southeast of Fort Worth). Been carrying daily since I got it.

    Looking forward to participating in some very interesting discussions.

  6. Hello

    Evening, folks. Just found & signed up this PM. Cruised a few threads & liked what I saw. Looking forward to learning & sharing. Later.
    Never start a fight with an old man. If he's too old to fight he'll probably just shoot you.

    Larry - DA vs SA vs Revolver

    Hi Larry. Confusing huh!?! Lot's of good info here. I myself have been carrying concealed for almost 15 years. I had a CCW in California when I lived there for two cycles, and have just renewed mine here in Utah the third time - 10 years - and I carry most every day. The thing that contiually tosses over in my mind is will it be enough to bring down / stop the attack? I have carried mostly revolvers - concealed, but occasionally I have carried pistols. Most common shells I find on the ground when shooting is 9mm. A guy wants to be able to continue when out of ammo if it comes to that. A guy wants to stop the attack! Myself - I feel a 9mm isn't enough to stop the attack - what with the crazed incoherence of druggies out there. Their brain is slow to realize their body parts are being loaded up with lead! There are many articles I have read in police articles which state "the guy just kept coming"!
    I just purchased a 10mm and from the balistics I have studied up on, it is easily loaded up to a .357 mag, or even a .41 mag. This is well more than even a .45 auto, and may have enough stopping power without being too much to handle. Mine holds at least 12 - some of the books say it holds 15, and if so, it is a lot of rounds to make sure the attack stops!
    I know I am opening up another can of worms, the downside to 10mm is there isn't many around so one would need to have enough ammo for the situation, and some think it is a little heavy on recoil. I hope to test it out this weekend! I will let you all know how it goes.

    Thoughts anyone?

    Just wanted to say "hello."

    Took my conceal/carry live fire this AM and passed with all shots from my CZ M82 in either the 9 or X rings. Not bad for an almost 70 year old yankee now a resident of the great state of North Carolina.

    My only problem with the permit here in the tar heel state is that the ID does not have a picture of the person who is the true permit holder.

    After 9/11 I would have thought that any such permit would require a photo ID. I know $'s are tight but this seems like a "no brainer."

    Any thoughts on this subject out there?
