Thank you all for the warm welcome! Went in the Navy right out of High School. They told me submariners make more money......hazard pay. Joined and never looked back. I did a few West Pac Deployments so I did get to "see the world" but only when we hit port! The question I always get is how do you deal with being submerged for long periods in cramped qtrs. They do many tests before they assign you to subs to ensure you are not claustrophobic believe me! I love .45's as I had to carry one for years when I stood topside watch on the sub. Got to know it quite well! Looking forward to Gunsite very much. Been waiting a year to go. Thanks Again!
Just joined up and wanted to check in. I live in Mid Tn, a bit south of Nashville. US Navy Vet (Submarine Service for 8 years), Just joined Strategic Edge Range in Chapel Hill after my waiting period. Heading to Gunsite Academy in Arizona in Dec for the week long 250 pistol class. I reload and love .45's (have Colt, Dan Wesson, Les Baer, Springfield, etc). Also hog hunt in east Tennessee. Looking to retire next year so the wife and I can travel a bit and get into some competitive shooting as a hobby. That about sums it up! Looking forward to learn from the experienced folks on here. Best, Gary
