Former New Yorker Checking In!

Recommended Posts

Hello! 

I've lived in TN for one year ago today and I have yet to regret my decision but I'll start from the beginning. 

About a year and a half ago I visited my close friend for the first time in 2 years. I stayed a week and fell in love with the state. I particularly loved the drive down through southern VA and east TN the most. When I got back home I started looking for jobs and places go live. Barely a month later I accepted a job in Johnson City and transferred south. 

Most people don't understand how bad NY is until you transition to a free state. You may have heard the stories first or second hand but I have lived it. I'm only 25 so I haven't known anything but the state we know now. My dad remembers when it was blue from his childhood,  but not me!

Promptly moving down here I picked up my first pistol, then my second, and now I have 4. I also bought my first AR. In NY I was saving up for a build but barrels have to have threading cut off so I decided to wait. 

I am VERY interested in getting into competitions and steel shoots. All I've been doing is going to state ranges and it seems like the big 3 gun and PRS ranges are closer to Nashville.

Welcome to Tennessee.  

In the words of the immortal Lewis Grizzard, "Come on down here. Breathe our air.  Eat our food. Marry our women.  There's just one thing we ask of you - don't tell us how you used to do it back in Brooklyn."

Welcome to NE TN. I escaped Western NY 3.5 years ago. I wasn't a NY native, and I'm old enough to know it was not a good place to be but it didn't pay the bills. Wish I would have made the move years earlier but enjoying life now.

Welcome. I am native Tennessee, but lived in Louisiana and Wisconsin after college. Escaped beck home in 2008 so our daughter could grow up in a place I trust. Now the wife (from Shreveport) calls Tennesseeee home too!
