I like guns...

Hi yall. My name is Samantha. I am from Myrtle Beach. I kind of feel like I am making a profile for a dating website, so will someone please tell me what I am supposed to talk about?

I am going to the event on November 5th. I have never been to anything like this, so I am really excited about it. I am looking forward to seeing what all is brought out.

Welcome to the forum. No need to be shy. We have all been newbies to the forum venue at one time. You've come to a place with nice people who will answer questions or give advise and encourage you.

Hi guys,

Thank you for the welcome. I have shot a few guns. I have never shot any fully automatics before though. I have a few pistols and I have an AR15, but its never been used. My father bought it for me as a collectors item. I would like to shoot anything. I have found that one 30 minute session at a range helps me clear my mind and relaxes me. I like to go but I don't really have anyone to go with. I am always willing to try new things and hear any advice anyone has to give.

Welcome to the forum!
Glad to hear that you're coming to shootzenfest, you'll have ample opportunity to fire all sorts of new to you weapons. Is there anything in particular that you're interested in or would like to try? Don't hesitate to ask, we're a generous lot.

As for what to talk about, there's a wide range of topics that we cover. Building, Optics, Smithing, SC Gun Legislature, Hunting, Reloading, Reviews, and even adding a bit of bling to your weapons lol. If you don't find what you're looking for, ask. We're friendly to new and experienced alike, the only bad questions are the ones you don't ask, and if anyone gives you problems let the moderators know and we'll smack 'em around for you. Jump on in and add your voice to the fray, I look forward to it.

*Yay! Another girl on the board! Squee!* *Ahem*

Thanks every one for all the support.

I would like to shoot anything I can. I love the experience.

I have a question. I have been talking to a few cops in the area about the idea of getting my CWP. One of them said that there are so many places that you cannot take your gun into and since you don't have to have the CWP to carry one in your car, I shouldn't even worry about having it, just get a gun and keep it in my car. What do yall think on that?

Please don't take advice, professional or personal, from those "cops". It sounds like they have an agenda. It sounds like those particular "cops" don't want you, or the "general public" carrying, for whatever reason.

I disagree with the police officer. I honestly can not think of any reason not to get your permit, providing that you can pass the background check and are old enough. Yes, there are places where you're not allowed to carry a weapon, but if you don't have your permit you aren't allowed to carry your weapon at all. I'm surprised that the officer recommended that you not get your permit, perhaps next time you should ask him where most women are attacked, robbed etc, in their car or in the parking lot on their way to/from their car? If I have my weapon on me I can handle the situation a lot faster than I can if I have to run to my car for it or back into the building for help. When someone is trying to hurt you, time is absolutely of the essence.

Places where you're not allowed to carry your weapon such as the dmv, the court house, schools, etc are not places that I consider high crime and I only visit them during the day so I pop my gun into the glove box and park as close as I can. As for businesses that have no weapons allowed signs, there are very strict rules that the business must follow for their signs to be compliant, if they do not follow those rules they are not enforceable and we are not required to disarm ourselves. If they see your weapon they can ask you to leave and you have to do so, but if you keep your concealed weapon concealed it shouldn't be an issue. Perhaps the police officer does not realize that the majority of "no weapons allowed" signs are not compliant? There's a sticky thread in the CCW forum (http://www.palmettoshootersforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=151) that lists some of the places that have compliant signs and also details exactly what the signs must look like, where they must be placed, etc.

The most common places that I go where I cannot take my weapon are restaurants that serve alcohol. It's really not that big of a deal, if you're going to drink alcohol you won't have your weapon with you and if you're not going to drink go someplace that doesn't serve alcohol or don't take it inside. There's legislation proposed to change that anyway, let's hope it passes.

I have a solution...Become a Deputy and you can carry anywhere you want, ANYTIME..except if your DRINKING alcohol. Police Depts and Sheriff's offices are always looking for Reserve Deputies & Officers. And most agencies consider a reserve a LE1 offduty so that means you can carry. Do a ride along. I bet you will fall in love. I have had about 4 friends do ride alongs with me and all have become reserves.
