Just joined ... Stoppin' in to say hi y'all

Recommended Posts

I just joined and wanted to say Hi.  Just recently retired and moved into the area and trying to learn more of what I can and can't do in Tenn.  One of the local shops recommended that I join this forum for information. I am not new to firearms, training or working on firearms, just new to the state and their laws.  I mostly own AR15s in several different variations that I had assembled throughout the years.  I retired from government work and had a short stint in the private firearms sales and training.  As an armorer I had access to many parts and knew what was quality and what was crap.  I mapped out a 115 yard range on property and now I realize that I need more land.  I recently became more interested in precision shooting and limited right now to the 5.56/.223 round because that is what I had the most access to.  Looking to expand my knowledge on some of the more accurate mid-long distance cartridges and their characteristics. 

I came from a mostly liberal state anti gun state where you couldn't do anything and hated every minute. I was exempt from most of the state gun laws until I officially retired.   I am a God fearing, gun loving patriot and glad to have finally landed in a place I can truly call home.   Hoping this old dog can learn some new tricks from y'all on this forum. 

God Bless Ya.

Welcome aboard, I was lucky enough to be born and raised in and around Nashville (back before it bacame a liberal bastion). Joined the Navy right out of High School and left the state for 20+ years. Came back when I retired and found out that the statement "There ain't no place like Home" is TRUE! Welcome to the Great State of Tennessee and the forum, you'll enjoy both!
