    Hello, my name is Vince, I'm aSoldierat Fort BraggNC. I open carry every time i leave base, i have a Springfield XD .40 that goes with me everywhere. I would trust my life with thisweapon anytime, anywhere. Well i'm new to this site, and i'm glad to see there are so many other people that feel the same way about bearing arms as i do! Kinda gives me a warm fuzzy. Please feel free to say hi! I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you better!

    I also wish to thank you sir for your service to our nation. Welcome aboard and I am sure you will find this site most informative. Sometimes a little spirited but then again, that's part of being an American.

    Enjoy and stay safe.

    I was Security Forces (USAF), we trained with some "Bragg" guys in Korea. Real solid guys. I don't recall the 27th guns being there, but I'm sure it would be a sight to see!!! The biggest we had were 81mm tubes, I'm sure that's nothing compared to what you guys get to play with.:celebrate

    Welcome and my thanks go out to you also for your service.

    If you check the North Carolina forum, you will have a better chance of getting to meet people in your area. They may even have meet up events like we do here in Virginia.

    Best of luck to you and be safe if you deploy.

    Be Careful Out There!
