Hey everyone, As of June 23rd, I am no longer under the ball and chain of Uncle Sam! I'm coming home to Grants Pass after 4 years in the Army stationed in Fort Bragg, NC. I've been an active member of: CarolinaShootersForum.com - Powered by vBulletin for a good while and have been around guns pretty much all my life. While serving in Afghanistan during OEF 9/10 I was able to get some pretty awesome training from a pal of mine who traveled to Israel many times and was taught by the IDF. I hope to use this training I received to help other people become more confident and comfortable with their firearms, and their personal safety. I plan to start shooting competitively with the IDPA and possibly branch off from there. Lastly thank you all for stemming my woes about finding another great forum to come to, I hope that this community proves to be as warm and welcoming as the Carolinas!
