New in town

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, just moved to Spring Hill (Middle TN) a few months back. Glad I found a forum with like minded individuals. I come from behind enemy lines in CA. I worked in the firearm industry in the state and ended up running a gun shop out there for the past 8 years. (Yes, it’s as frustrating as it sounds) It’s so nice to finally live in free America. I may have come from CA but I’m the furthest thing from a Californian you will find. lol Anyways, I’m happy to be here, already purchased 5 guns since moving out here!

Welcome neighbor. Moved here in 2005 and I miss those times when it was only 15,000 people here. Clicked 40,000 this year I think.

Welcome aboard!!!  I remember a time in Spring Hill when there was only two traffic lights, a few gas stations, couple restaurants, couple churches and not much else.

Welcome!  I'd love to hear more about what it was like running a gun shop in California.

Haha well, despite the asinine gun laws there is actually a very strong gun culture there. Some of the most diehard gun guys I’ve met were regular customers of mine. We were an incredibly busy shop, and the more legislation the morons in charge would pass, the more guns we’d sell. The last straw for me was when they forced us to do background checks to sell ammunition. I had customers that would pass their background check for their firearm only to be denied on their ammo purchase because the states system didn’t have time to update that they owned a firearm in the caliber they were trying to purchase. This was after waiting 10 days to pick up their gun. They legislated the living hell out of firearms while at the same time decriminalizing violent felonies and reducing sentences for repeat offenders. That state is so ass-backwards it’s amazing it hasn’t collapsed. (Yet) Anyways, I could rant about working in the CA firearm industry all day. Just know that there is no way we can let that happen in TN!!
