I just wanted to drop by and introduce myself. My name is Josh and I recently moved to Nashville and about to try and get back into shooting IDPA. I think the IDPA range in Dickson is the closest one. I am originally from MS and was a member of the Desoto Gun Club where I shot IDPA for about a year or so. I am considered "young" in the gun world at 24 although I built my first stripped lower when I was 20. I like AR's, 1911's, and long walks on the beach lol

Thanks! I originally shot a Springfield XD .45 in IDPA SSP division but because of .45 ammo being so expensive I have done the unthinkable and bought an STI 9mm Spartan 1911 for the ESP. I have run about 200 rounds through it with some 10 rd Tripp magazines and it just eats ammo. So hopefully no "1911 malfunctions". Ordered some VCD grips and maybe a Dawson magwell soon.
