Default Guns Guns Guns

Who here shoots and or carries?
What do you carry?
Do you carry on the job?
Ever had to use or pull?

I my self was raised in a very pro firearm family and have had and been around guns for as long as i can remember
i personally carry a glock 19 or a h&k usp compact 45 thankfully i have never had to use but i believe it is better to have and not need than need and not have
i also am a avid hunter (deer turkey coyote bobcat geese etc.)

With this title, I thought it might be about guns LOL.

How is your state as far as firearms go? What do you have to do to get a permit to carry?

I have been shooting since I was very young, I was always taught to respect guns, I knew as a kid where they were in the house & I knew not to touch them without my father around. I think kids who find guns in the home but have not been taught about them are the ones that you read about in the papers. They don't understand it's power & think it's a toy. For that I blame the parents.

I was a pretty damn good shot by about 5 or 6.

I have a couple rifles & a Ruger 9mm semi auto pistol. I've never had to use it in a self defence situation, but I would not hesitate to do so especially if someone came into my home.

The pistol is just a protection weapon. As a matter of fact when I hit the range with it I don't ever take my time to line up on a target for accuracy. I hold it down, pick it up & run rapid 4 round bursts & try for a tight group in center body mass. I figure & train to put 4 in the dumb punk who tries to enter my home & endanger my family. I'll ask questions later.

Currently, no permit is required to own/carry a non-concealed handgun other than age (21) unless you have a criminal record.

South Carolina Carry/Conceal Pistol Permit
Eligibility: The applicant must:
1. be lawfully present in the United States;
2. not be a nonimmigrant alien;
3. not be prohibited by federal, state or local law from possessing firearms;
4. be a resident of South Carolina (residing permanently in SC or presently in SC with intent to become a permanent resident); a qualified non-resident who owns real property in South Carolina, but resides in another state; or military personnel in SC on permanent change of station orders;
5. be at least 21 years old;
6. have completed, within the last 3 years, a minimum 8-hour training course presented by a SLED-certified CWP instructor which must have covered the following topics: (a) statutory and case law of SC relating to handguns and use of deadly force; (b) handgun use and safety; (c) proper storage practices for handguns that reduce possibility of accidental injury to children; and (d) actual firing of the handgun in the presence of the instructor; ($175.00)and
7. have a favorable background.
8. Must be renewed annually (50.00).

I have had an NY State carry/conceal permit for over 35 years. It took about 6 months to get from start to finish. My NY permit is legal for life as long as I have no felonies. New NY permits are good only for 1 year and must be renewed annually (I think the cost is $250.00 per year).

I have a .40 caliber S&W Sigma LE and a Sig .40 caliber. I have a SC carry/conceal permit but do not carried concealed or otherwise . I have it “just in case” security issues warrant it (such as a terrorist situation).

Just on the news - Trial starts today for a shooting involved home invasion. Elderly man shot in home invasion. 2 suspects shot by man's 83 year old wife. 18 and 20 year old gang involved suspects suspects linked to three other home invasions.

This house was only 2 blocks from my house!

Gun and ammunition sales show marked increase here locally. The trial is expected to be a short one.

I hunt a lot. Turkey, deer, squirrel, etc. I have several guns (6) but I dont feel the need to carry one. I just sold my pistol. I keep my rifles locked up in my gun cabinet.

My kids have guns too, and know how to use them very well. I have always taught them the safe way to handle them. I let them shoot whenever they want to, so they naturally dont have the urge to "check them out" when dads not home. I have a theory that it is the kids who are kept away from them that end up looking for them and having accidents when no one is home.
