Howdy everyone! SFC Skip here, and I just wanted to say I enjoy this site. Great job. I do not quite live in the Northwest, but the south has pretty fair firearm laws. Just a quick intro for everyone. I am a Mississippi boy who loves to shoot. I have spent 21 yrs in the Army and NG, with most as a tanker on the M1A1 tank. 120mm smooth-bore shooting is definately hard to beat. Earned the nickname "Skip" in 2005 just south of Fallujah, Iraq. My platoon gave me the title after my humvee hit a crater going 60+ mph and spit me out. Thank the Lord for body armor! . Anyway, I am looking forward to being a member, and thanks to "spellcheck" it might not be too obvious that I am from MS.
