Hey Folks

New member here. I'm from Texas, but I'm currently stationed in Savannah, GA. I believe strongly in the idea that we're each ultimately responsible for our own safety and for the safety of those around us. I got my Texas Concealed Handgun License in 2008, but, due to the military, only have a few months of experience carrying.

When I got my CHL in 2008, I carried a Springfield XD45 Service. I had to leave it with my folks, and haven't seen it since. I'll be getting it back over Christmas. I wanted something a little easier to conceal and cheaper to shoot than my XD45, so last week, after a lot of research, I bought a Glock 19.

I don't have much experience with handguns, so I hope to shoot as much as I can afford to. I'd really like to develop my shooting and defensive pistol skills.

I have some questions about where/how I can carry, but I'll save those for another thread.

Stay safe y'all!

Hello Math Teacher!

Welcome to GA and welcome to the boards! What part of Texas are you from?
Spent some years in Wharton, TX, SW of Houston about an hour, and spent a couple years in Katy, TX, a Houston suberb.

Also spent a lot of my childhood in Nebraska.

You're from Texas, Budder?

Went to school at Rice. I used to shoot over at ASC out on Westheimer in the Katy/Sugarland area.

Glad to have you; Great choice with the Glock...it's not very pretty, but it handles well when you need it. Just keep your finger away from that trigger and don't shoot your groin off! :D

Welcome! Study your exemption under OCGA 16-11-130. You can basically carry any place a law enforcement officer carries on your ID alone. If you maintain your Texas residency, you're even good in South Carolina. Otherwise avoid SC like the plague.
