    Greetings,
    I am from North Carolina, just completed my requirements for CCW and am anxiously awaiting the day it arrives in the mail. My current EDC is an XD (not mod 2) 9mm. I love everything about it. It is a great gun to fire and fits really nice in the hands. I feel quite comfortable with it.
    Luckily, NC is an open carry state so even though I do not have the CCW yet, I can at least have the gun with me when I go out and travel around the state and in these uncertain times that is a peace of mind that money cannot buy.
    I am originally from MA, where I could not even buy ammo for my 20Ga. shotgun, heck, I needed an FID card just to buy BB's. Forget ever getting a permit to carry. If you did not know the sheriff really well and were politically connected, it was not happening. Thank goodness I am in a state where they understand the rights of citizens to protect themselves.
    Looking forward to reading and writing posts here.

    That's all, going to go post a picture of my 9.

    So long for now,
    Kingman

    Welcome. It's sad that a state like MA with such a rich patriotic history can become a place where people are denied basic rights. Glad you're now in NC. I wonder if states like MA take tourism into account when they deny people their rights. I don't vacation or spend money in states where I can't carry.

    I live a little south of Raleigh. I work up at RTP in Durham and get a choice of some great firing ranges in my area. Kidd's in Holly Springs where there is a fantastic outdoor pistol range with mechanized targets is the only one I have tried yet, but going to a new one today. Will let you know how it was. Hoping to be able to do a video.

    Lived in Asheville for about 8 years and really liked the area.
    Wife and I still go back to visit several times a year.
    We all like pics and videos.
