RadarTech Posted December 15, 2011 Share Posted December 15, 2011 Hi folks! My name is Jim and I have already gone "ballistic"! Pun intended... Got an offer from a friend to go shooting and jumped up and out the door we went. Shot 2 USPSA matches and a steel challenge. I can't say enough about how friendly and helpful the folks were at the matches and how much I've already learned. AWESOME! Now a little background: I am a Marine Corps Veteran from the 90s' 9 years in and missing so much now! As you might guess from my screen name I was a RadarTech in the Corps and there might even be a few of those I served with on this forum... Being a Tech was one my proudest accomplishments... I live in the Mountains of Western North Carolina, but travel all over. So one thing I am looking at is finding matches around the business trips I take and see when there might be a match near a customer site. The USPSA page seems to have some good info for the matches Flying with a weapon and ammo with the guidance of the pros here is a topic for discussion that I need to review... Just submitted for my CCW, and should have it before long. Currently I am shooting a loaned Rock Island 1911 Match 5" barrel with a number of tweaks. The pistol of choice may be a Spartan 1911 soon.... To the moderators and staff here.... Thanks for hosting and all the work you do! Being in the IT industry myself I know how much work this can be! To everyone: Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts, comments and knowledge!!!! Semper Fi, Jim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
