Hello from 2AinSC

Just a note from a CWP holder in South Carolina. I'm 67 years young, married to my high school sweetheart since January of 1966. She is wheelchair bound, due to a stroke, paralyzed on her left side, but she is also a CWP holder. We call her "Grambo". ( that's a story in itself.)

The only Ruger I have, is my carry weapon, the SR9. Shoulder holster with two back-up mags. No, I'm not lookin' to start a war, but I'll darned sure be able to let someone know that they started one. And I aim to end it.

My wife's weapon is a Taurus .380, carried in a belly pack with a built in holster. If she was able to use both hands, we'd upgrade the caliber, but, no can do.

Anyway, I've lurked here for awhile, and thought I'd register. Lots of info here, and I appreciate it.

Pete

Welcome from a displaced Sandlapper in the hills of Tennessee!

I still shoot IDPA in Greenville every month.

Thanks for the warm welcome(s), y'all. I'll stay quiet for awhile, till I get the "lay of the land".

@303lithgow.........."Welcome from Washington State. Good to hear from someone my age."........... Kinda like fine wine, huh? We only get better with age. (Grambo still thinks I'm a pain in the butt though.)

@BuckJM53.......Born, raised, and left the Dayton area. Close? Grambo's family still live in that area. Good reason for CWP.

@JimB120......"I still shoot IDPA in Greenville every month."..........Well, Jim, we're only 50 miles east of Greenville and live in the middle of the woods, so you're welcome to stop in and we'll bag a few of those IDPAs. But you'll have to show me a picture of one, cause I don't know what one looks like. Do they taste good? We've got every other known native critters native to SC, but for the life of me I don't know what an IDPA looks like. (ducks, waiting for a stern lesson, sure to come.)

They look a lot like Snipes 2A! As a SC boy I'm sure you must have been on at least one Snipe hunt as a youngster!

IDPA is an organization where grown men (a lot of us well grown like ourselves ) run around shooting cardboard targets, like playing cops n' robbers with live ammo.

They claim it's to teach handling handguns in self defense situations, but it's mostly guys playing with guns.

I know there are some folks in the Greenville Gun Club group from Greer.
