This my first post ever on a forum, so please go easy on a first timer. I have been a lurker on many forums and have never dared to post until now. I have had a CCP for nearly 14 years and have never carried until recently. I'm orignally from the country, Americus (Sumter County), and I never knew how important it was to be armed and trained till I moved to metro ATL. Due to high level crime in metro ATL, I feel compelled to carry everywhere thats legal, to protect my family. I chose this this site because I wanted to get a feel of Georgians felt about carrying for personal protection. I look forward to the future exchanging stories and tips with you guys.
