    Hello all.
    Just joined about 10 days ago and have been enjoying reading and learning from the all the posts in all the different categories/topics.
    I am a husband, father, military veteran/retiree (Army, 20 years), GWL holder, and a member/supporter of GeorgiaCarry.Org, the NRA, and the SAF.
    I got my first gun when I was five years old -- a shiny cowboy six shooter replica that shot plastic bullets (thanks grandpa!) -- and I have been a gun guy ever since. I currently have a 9mm S&W semiauto and a 1911 in .22 caliber. As soon as I can talk my wife into it, I want to next acquire a compact 9mm for everyday carry and an AR in 5.56/.223.
    Lastly, I don't consider myself a hunter (but I do support those who are), but I would love to go hunting for wild hogs one day. I hear there are some decent places for that right here in Georgia.
    Will close by saying I am grateful for the opportunity to join Georgia Packing, and I look forward to making some new friends here on the forum.

    Hi, Joe.
    I agree with you about the wild hog hunting--- that sounds like fun.
    Good luck finding a 9mm carry gun for your wife. There are a lot of good choices out on the market these days. Far more than we had 20 years ago.

    Welcome aboard!

    For everyday carry all you need is a good holster. There ain't no S&W 9mm too big for EDC. Get the compact pistol for your better half as a gift. "See, honey...I didn't buy myself another gun." :shattered:
