Airic Posted January 2, 2007 Share Posted January 2, 2007 Hello anyone.. . My name is Eric. I figured I start one of these. I was thinking about doing it anyway....on blogger or myspace. What better place to do it then here? Maybe I should start with a little history. I am from a small town in southwestern Oklahoma. I started my competition shooting "career" in 2000, at Indian Territories Practical Shooters in Duke, Ok. I met a couple guys, (Bill D. and Glenn M.) through a mutual friend. They convinced me I needed to come out and start shooting. I didnt have any equipment, I didnt even own a pistol. Bill D. supplied me with a Beretta 92, and all the fixins to start shooting. Not long after that, I bought my first pistol. A Glock 22C. I changed out the barrel, added some sweet equipment and started shooting limited. Sometime in the summer of 2000, I got my first classification, D limited. I shot every time there was a match. Glenn and Bill carried me to every match they drove to. OKC, matches in Texas, Area 4. I dont know how much money they spent to keep me shooting, but I truly appreciated it ( I was in college at the time, no job. No money = no shooting) In the summer of 01, I moved away to Arizona. Phoenix. I then found Rio Salado. It was like I died and went to heaven. This was shooting. I spent a year in AZ, shot about 400-500 rounds a week, shot Area 2, and made A limited before I left. I took a break for a couple years (college, beer, girls, army, beer, girl, married, baby....in that order). I am now back to a stable place where I can start shooting regularly again. I have found a great group of shooters in the DFW area, with matches going on all around me every week. My main goal this year is to make master in production. I dont know how many big matches im gonna make this year, but I will be at the Double Tap. That sounds like a nice start....now time to dryfire.
